Apple: iPhone 5S packing an Apple A7 Processor, gains 31% faster speeds

A Fox News by the name Clayton Morris claims that inside sources had told him that the Apple iPhone 5S will be powered by an Apple designed A7 SoC which is reportedely  31% faster than the current A6 chip used on the Apple iPhone 5. No benchmarks has been actually done and its not clear whether the 31% increase relates to the CPU or GPU since both are included on the SoC. According to KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo, a move to a ARMv8 architecture could lead to a 20% gain in efficiency while offering 64-bit support in the A7 could increase speeds.

MacRumours and 9to5Mac have also reported that Apple has already tested prototype 64-bit chips, although they can’t say for sure than it will end up in the new iPhone.
It would be an interesting twist. The Android gang is already going for quad-core parts based on A9, A15 or Krait cores. Instead of adding more cores, Apple might roll out a heavily customized 64-bit part, which might offer more efficiency.
