[* black] When compared to the rigid, efficient layout of the GPU cores directly below it, the layout of the ARM cores looks a little homespun—at first.
[* black] Generally, logic blocks are automagically laid out with the use of advanced computer software. However, it looks like the ARM core blocks were laid out manually—as in, ''by hand''.
[* black] A manual layout will usually result in faster processing speeds, but it is much more expensive and time consuming.
[* black] The manual layout of the ARM processors lends much credence to the rumor that Apple designed a custom processor of the same caliber as the all-new [link|http://www.arm.com/products/processors/cortex-a/cortex-a15.php|Cortex-A15], and it just might be the only manual layout in a chip to hit the market in several years.
