A powerful A8 chip. A stunning Retina display. An incredibly portable design. Whether you like fast-paced action, amazingly detailed strategy games, or beautifully intricate puzzles, iPod touch offers the ultimate mobile gaming experience.
iPod touch features an Apple-designed A8 chip built on 64-bit architecture. This desktop-class chip features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch so the graphics in your favorite games are more responsive and look more vivid than ever before and CPU performance is up to six times faster. And you get the same great battery life, with up to 40 hours of music and 8 hours of video playback.
To get the greatest graphics performance out of the A8 chip and iOS 8, we created Metal a new technology that allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimized to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects. So every imaginary world feels more realistic.
