It is reported that the Apple Watch Series 9 chip uses a 5nm process: performance is improved by 50%
According to reports from foreign technology media macworld, the Apple Watch Series 9 launched by Apple this fall will have a greater performance improvement. It is speculated that the performance will be increased by 50 % and the power consumption will be reduced by 30%.
In a recent Power On newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says the S9 will offer the first “significant speed improvements” since the Series 6.
IT House quoted macworld reports that Apple Apple Watch Series 9 will be equipped with S9 chips, based on Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset, and equipped with a supporting GPU.
Apple has shipped 1GB of RAM since the Apple Watch Series 4. The A15 uses the same LPDDR 4x specification memory as the A13, and it is currently impossible to judge whether Apple will increase the content.
The biggest change from A13 to A15 lies in the production process. A15 is manufactured using TSMC’s second-generation 5nm process — N5P.
Based on the performance difference between A13 (7nm) and A15 (5nm), the media speculates that the performance of the S9 chip can be increased by 40-50%, and the power consumption can be reduced by 30%.
The media also stated that the above data is only an increase in an ideal state. The specific performance and battery life also depend on many factors such as heat dissipation, voltage, application scenarios, sensors, etc., and the specifics have to wait for Apple’s official announcement.
