New Purported Images Show iPhone 6's A8 Processor

New images has just published on Weibo showing Apple's redesigned A8 Proceesor said to power the iPhone 6 and new iPads may have been finally photographed. Serving as the engine powering the next wave of iPhone and iPad device, the in-house designed A8 processor is said to be clocked at two or more GHz per core, if Chinese media is to be believed.

Originally published on Weibo and reposted by French publication[Google Translate], the photo appears to be genuine as the author of the NowhereElse article noted that he considers the source to be “fairly reliable”.

The 20-nanometer process technology yields smaller transistors, making the chip smaller and in turn requiring less energy while improving performance because the electrons travel shorter distance.

 The image below shows a photo of the claimed iPhone 6 logo board with a larger rectangular section clearly reserved for the A8 processor.
Apple’s current A7 processor found inside the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display packs in more than a billion transistors.

 It features an Apple-designed 64-bit 1.3–1.4GHz ARMv8-A dual-core CPU, dubbed Cyclone, and a graphics processing unit identified as a PowerVR G6430 module in a four cluster configuration from Imagination Technologies, a UK-based fabless semiconductor maker and Apple’s graphics provider for iOS devices.
