What would really be a great compliment to this analysis articel is to investigate and report what EDA design tools were used to design the chips.

I think they are 3D multi chip modules so that is probably the size of the DRAM integrated into the package

Looks no performance advance in A4. What is the magic of 10 hours running time?

What's I'd love to see is more comparisons between the capabilities of the A4 and other similar generation ARM mobile processors like the Qualcomm Snapdragon, Nvidia Tegra 1/2 and TI OMAP 3/4.

Is this really Apple own design or Samsung chip with Apple logo on it?

Hi, I think your Dhrystone numbers are out by a factor of 1000. ARM's Cortex-A8 is 2 DMIPS / MHz, not 2000. Regards, Simon
