Apple's newest A5 processor has some smashing cool stuff built into it. The die plan of the A5 processor reveals that it will be 230% larger, despite being built using the same 45 nanometer process. Now the dual core processor and new graphics processor obviously contributed to that size increase
Now a company called Audience is claiming that the A5's size is attributed to it having the noise cancelling technology built into it. What does this mean exactly? While the A4 was tame, being nothing more than a rebranded Samsung chip, the A5 shows that Apple is open to building custom solutions to best fit their needs. All eyes will be on the A6 chip that’ll no doubt show up in the next generation iPad.
