How more RAM for iPhone 3GS helps it live up to Apple's hype about speed
From Taptaptap.com: The most significant thing that Apple’s been touting about new iPhone 3GS is its speed. Generally, when you think about speed improvements, you think of faster CPUs, faster GPUs, and such. But one very important difference in the 3GS that’s contributing to the overall performance is the increased RAM and that’s pretty much gone under the radar. Apple’s been fairly quiet about the actual specs of the hardware that’s been in all the iPhones.
Take a look at their Technical Specifications page and do a quick search on processor speed, GPU specs, or RAM sizes and you’ll come up empty. Essentially, all you’ll find is the “capacity” and that’s mainly because that’s how they differentiate the various models (“capacity” on the iPhone refers to its flash memory and is the equivalent of hard drive space on your Mac or PC).
CPU (central processing unit):
- original iPhone: ARM 11, 412 MHz
- iPhone 3G: ARM 11, 412 MHz
- iPhone 3GS: ARM Cortex, 600 MHz
GPU (graphics processing unit):
- original iPhone: PowerVR MBX Lite
- iPhone 3G: PowerVR MBX Lite
- iPhone 3GS: PowerVR SGX
RAM (random access memory):
- original iPhone: 128 MB
- iPhone 3G: 128 MB
- iPhone 3GS: 256 MB
