Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6 will be equipped with an A8 dual-core microprocessor that will reach or exceed 2GHz per core, Chinese site cnBeta claims. This would be a significant jump from the current 1.3GHz A7 chip found in the iPhone 5s. It’s believed the chip will remain 64-bit, and it will be manufactured using a 20nm process. A number of reports have indicated Apple’s newest devices will feature the upgraded A8 chip; a Thursday report noted Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company has started shipping chips to Apple.
