The Lower-Priced $399 iPad Has More Advanced Silicon Chip

The newer, cheaper version of the iPad 2 might have a silicon chip that is more advanced than that of the latest iPad. According to the chip reviewer Anandtech, the iPad 2’s use a more advanced version of the dual-core Apple A5 series chip, a development of the latest in cutting-edge technology coming from Samsung’s High-K + Metal Gate process.

The chip reviewer points out, that the new chip is noticeably smaller, going from 45-nanometer to 32-nanometer, an almost 50% decrease in size. What this means is that the chip is more efficient as it is able to complete the same tasks as the larger one. More importantly, the efficiency should result in a longer battery life for those who buy the newer, cheaper iPad 2.
