    Because knowing Apple the G6430 has been modified and tweaked, possibly significally, so it just listed as "A7 GPU" everywhere. And thinking about that we don't even know if it is derived from the G6430 anyway, it just a good guess based out of a die shot, where we saw some logic replicated 4 times (G6400/G6430) and assuming Apple prefers strong GPU's so they chosen G6430 (improved G6400). Taking into consideration that A7 are getting around 13 fps in Manhattan and Allwinner Ultra octa with G6230 is getting 10,8 and 6430 is supposed to be 2x as fast things are getting blurry. Reply

    You are absolutely right. Apple call his GPU A7, and Imagination Tech never confirmed whether it was the g6430 inside it. Anand did a great job analysing this GPU, but it could be even another version of PowerVR series 6. Reply

    Intel Atoms are more for historical reference here.

    Imagination Technologies ***** balls with Intel mobile strategy ("open source drivers!!!").

    Intel is happily switching for their in house iGPUs.

    And thank god for it. I never understood why the sourced such a weak GPU from Imagination and crippled the SOC when they could have just chosen a better GPU. Reply
