Here's Apple's New A8 Chip: 20% faster CPU, 50% faster graphics

After the great announcement of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Tim Cook says that both the phones are running an Apple-designed A8-chip which has an astounding two billion transistors, twice as many as the A7.

Apple’s second-generation 64-bit processor is fabricated on a smaller 20-nanomenter process technology making it more power-friendly and thirteen percent smaller than the A7.
At any rate, the 50 percent faster graphics should really make a huge difference when coupled with Metal, a 3D graphics engine that Apple introduced last year which trims the fat and lets developers access hardware-specific features of the GPU.
