[* black] Check out the A7 processor's cross-section. Every little hump (through which you see that yellow line) is a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transistor|transistor]. By measuring the total distance between ten of these transistors, we can estimate a chip’s manufacturing process—essentially how tightly the manufacturer can pack in all that processing power.
[* black] The techs at Chipworks took out their [nano]meter stick and measured the distance between these transistors, which at first seemed very similar to the A6.
[* black] But wait! It turns out that the A7′s “gate pitch” — the distance between each transistor — is 114 nm, compared to the A6′s 123 nm.
[* black] Those 9 nm are a big deal. It turns out thatLooking to improve on their current 32 nm process, Apple decided to make the A7 is made with the same 28 nm process as the eight-core [http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/Exynos/products5octa.html|Samsung Exynos 5410], the current flagship CPU for Samsung’s own Galaxy line.
[* black] So what does that translate to? Applying some mathematrickerymathematrickery (28^2 divided by 32^2 = 784/1024), this seemingly small change equates to having the same computing power, but in 77% of the original area. And given that the A7 processor is even larger in area than the A6, that means even more processing power to lead a healthy, smartphone-laden lifestyle.
