Many individuals in contrast the Apple Watch Series four to the iPhone four whereas explaining the key design replace Apple delivered this yr. But Series four is probably extra similar to the iPhone 5S in relation to processor know-how. Just because the iPhone 5S was the primary iPhone (and smartphone) to rock a 64-bit processor, the Apple Watch Series four occurs to be the primary Apple wearable to ship with a 64-bit chip inside.
We already understand how a lot sooner the S4 SiP (Silicon in Package) contained in the Series four is, however a brand new discovery reveals that the processor can ship efficiency just like the iPhone 6s.
Apple says that the 64-bit dual-core S4 chip is as much as two instances sooner than the S3 chip powering the Series three. Over the weekend we noticed a video comparability of the 5 Apple Watch fashions Apple launched to this point — the depend begins at Series zero — which exhibits precisely how briskly the Apple Watch Series four is in comparison with each different mannequin.
The Series four was the quickest, however the variations weren’t enormous between Series four and Series three, per MacRumors. But when evaluating the brand new Watch to Series 2 and older fashions, you would actually see the distinction.

The velocity adjustments are so drastic that utilizing the Apple Watch Series four is a completely totally different expertise than utilizing an older Apple Watch,” MacRumors wrote. But that velocity comparability isn’t sufficient to showcase what the S4 chip can do, so well-known developer Steve Troughton-Smith got here up with the next take a look at:
Apparently, the S4 can do “60fps physically-based Metal rendering and real-time physics,” utilizing simply 64% of the chip’s energy.
Here’s the identical animation…
