Iphone 3G S - Mystery behind speed unfolded, well, almost

You might be wondering what makes the new Iphone 3G S so fast as compared to its predecessor?
Rumors have it that this is because of a chip. Why rumors if the phone has already been launched?
This is because of the fact that Apple doesn't disclose chip-level hardware specifications.

Now what does Apple actually say about the new Iphone :-
"The Fastest iPhone Ever. The first thing you'll notice about iPhone 3G S is how quickly you can launch applications. Web pages render in a fraction of the time, and you can view e-mail attachments faster. Improved performance and updated 3D graphics deliver an incredible gaming experience, too. In fact, everything you do on iPhone 3G S is up to two times faster and more responsive than iPhone 3G"

Speculations are that iPhone 3G S's application processor--essentially the brain of a smartphone--is similar to the processor used in the Palm Pre. The Texas Instruments' chip in the Pre is also a Cortex-A8 design core from ARM.

The picture will be more clear when specialists have access to Iphones and can rip open its hardware to find out the truth.
