When Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 we received a lot of details but some of the important stuff (at least for us, geeks), was left out, like the amount of RAM, kind, speeds, as well as any information related to the architecture of the A6 processor which is powering the iPhone 5.

The good folks at Anandtech started digging and they came to the conclusion that Apple’s A6 chip inside the latest Cupertino-designed (China-built) smartphone is a custom system-on-a-chip. As far as the part no. K3PE7E700F-XGC2 is concerned (from the chip above), turns out it is Samsung-made. We’re looking at dual-channel memory consisting of two 512MB chips per die for a total of 1GB total, clocking at 1066MHz. For the juicy, techy details, make sure to follow the source links below!
