Rocking IPHONE 7 like a hurricane! I’ve been talking about Apple’s silicon advantage for a few years now but it still doesn’t get the recognition is really deserves. Johny Sjrouji’s hardware technology team has brought Apple from nowhere to become the best chip designers in mobile — and arguably beyond — and there’s no sign of them slowing down. If anything, Apple is spending the money to let them run as fast as they possibly can. Look no further than IPHONE 7′s HURRICANE.zephyr. From the Linley Group: The massive Hurricane CPU improves performance by 35% over the previous-generation Twister, boosting both the clock speed and the per-clock performance. The smaller Zephyr CPU helps the IPHONE 7 extend battery life compared with its predecessor. That’s the advantage of the big.LITTLE design. With the standard design, when performance improves to a certain point, you lose efficiency on the low end. Hurricane can go high because Zephyr’s there to fill in the low. Part of…
