Apple claimed that the new S2 microprocessor at the heart of the Apple Watch Series 2 is 50 per cent faster than the original Apple Watch microprocessor, and offers double the performance for on-screen graphics.
As such, it should be able to run more powerful apps. It remains to be seen how power efficient it is, however, although Apple said that the Series 2 watch will last a whole day on a single charge.
Manufactured by TSMC to a 16nm FinFET manufacturing process, it is a customised application processor that integrates memory and storage, and supports wireless, sensors and I/O in a single, compact package.
TSMC said that the company's 16FFC manufacturing technology was developed specifically for low-cost, low-power applications.
