New iPod Touch: A8 SoC and 1GB RAM
The new iPod Touch provides a great improvement in performance compared to the past: in fact a mountain A8 SoC, 1GB of RAM and Bluetooth 4.1.
They are not aesthetically very different from their predecessors, except for the renewed colors and removing the proper hook for the wrist strap, but in hardware the new iPod Touch represent a dramatic shift from the past. It is as shown by the initial Benchmark tests on models, with the emergence not only of the quality of the already known A8 SoC, but also 1 GB of RAM. Powerful and versatile, the new iPod Touch does not seem to have much to envy to fellow smartphone, so that on paper seems to pass without too much effort iPhone 5.

According to a report in AppleInsider, this decision meets the need to save energy and ensure a longer battery life with no loss of speed: indeed, compared to a 6 iPhone, iPod Touch must meet a set of lower simultaneous functions.
The processor operates at a speed of 1.1 GHz, compared to 1.39 iPhone 6: the performance, according to Geekbench, is 1,379 points in the single core and double core to 2,440. The smartphone of Cupertino home, however, reaches scores of respectively 1,600 and 2,900. This fact is particularly interesting is the presence of a 1 GB RAM, a choice that actually makes the iPod Touch a revised version of the same and slightly undersized iPhone 6.
Another notation is important to enable the device to the Bluetooth specification 4.1, for greater stability and speed of connection. This equipment is not to be underestimated, because the standard is what Apple would choose to use for communications in its Smart Home, where a device like iPod Touch could find a place of respect.
