    saw this on the anandtech comments

    "Was looking at pdadb.net, here's their listing for the A6:

    2x ARM Cortex-A15 Harvard Superscalar processor core, 64/32-bit Multi-layer AHB/AXI bus, ARM TrustZone, ARM NEON SIMD engine, LPDDR2 SDRAM interface, NAND flash, moviNAND, SATA, eMMC interface, embedded GPS module, HDMI, triple display controller, 1080p video encode, 1080p video decode, audio subsystem, dual-core PowerVR SGX6200MP2 GPU

    It seems almost too good to be true. Cortex A-15 and SGX6200? (AKA Rogue?) It will be a real beast if it turns out to be true."

    A15 is possible, but not Rogue. If it were Rogue, we'd be looking at a much larger factor of improvement.

    Yeah I believe we are looking at an A15 or some form of it. As for the GPU, I heard rumors of a single-core Series 6 (Rogue), but again I'm uncertain of that. Lets wait for the teardowns.
