First off the processor – the Samsung S5PC100 based on the ARM Cortex A8 design – is much faster than older versions. 600Mhz compared to the iPhone 3G’s 412Mhz.
The 3G S has a PowerVR SGX graphics chip made by Imagination Technologies – far superior to the prior-generation graphics chip in the older models. RAM has been doubled to 256MB.
Apple is promising that the iPhone 3G S will be better, performance wise, to its older siblings in every way. These technical specifications seem to support this promise.
