Yesterday iFixit tore down the iPad 3 revealing the new iPadís A5X processor. Today, Chipworks went a step further by analyzing a number of the components in the new iPad under an infrared microscope.
The comprehensive analysis of everything inside the new iPad revealed the A5X is built around Samsungís 45nm low power architecture CMOS production process. The same architecture is utilized in the A5, and A4 processors found in older Apple devices.
