That is largely due to the custom A10X Fusion processor that is tucked inside. It is actually a pretty impressive piece of silicon, and one of a small number of chips being designed on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process. Andy Wei at TechInsights took a microscope to the A10X Fusion chip, which it reports is being produced by TSMC on a 10nm FinFET process. What is especially interesting about the design is that the die size is considerably smaller than the previous generation A9X SoC—it measures just 96.4mm2, down... Read more...
