iPhone 6 A8处理器完全解密

苹果表面上是一家手机厂商,但这几年已经悄然在移动处理器行业占据了一定的地位,尤其是CPU:A6首次使用自主设计架构Swift,A7首次使用64位ARMv8架构Cyclone。A8又能带来什么惊喜呢?
很可惜,如果你期待又一次革命,那恐怕要失望了。无论CPU还是GPU,A8都只是一次稳健的进步,并不算很激进。

A8最大的亮点其实是制造工艺,并且创造了多个第一:
  它是第一批采用20nm工艺制造的移动处理器之一,也是最重要的一个。
  这是苹果第一次使用最先进的半导体工艺(28nm诞生了一年多采用上)。
  这是苹果第一次使用非三星工厂代工,当然也是第一次使用台积电代工,而且一下子就抢走了绝大部分产能。
