Earlier today we told you about a report that indicated how the new A15 Bionic chipset is not as powerful as hoped. The next-generation CPU has reportedly been put off until next year’s A16 Bionic which originally was supposed to be built using TSMC’s 3nm process build. Instead, the new chip will feature the foundry’s 4nm process node. With a transistor density of 135.14 million transistors per square mm just slightly more than the A14 Bionic’s 134.09 million, this year’s chipset could be a major disappointment.
