The iPhone 5 sports 1GB of system memory, twice the amount of the iPhone 4S, a chip review site claims.
And it's faster too, said Anandtech in a post on Saturday.
"Roughly 33 percent more peak memory bandwidth than the iPhone 4S, which can definitely help feed the faster [graphics processing unit] and drive the higher resolution display," Anandtech said.
So, how does Anandtech know this? Apple did not hide the markings (see image above) at the Wednesday event, which revealed a Samsung -- manufacturer of the A6 -- part number.
We'll know for sure that it's a 1GB part, or not, when somebody takes apart the iPhone 5 and looks at the chip markings in a shipping product. That said, these markings are essentially the same data that is revealed in a teardown.
