We already knew about most
of the latest Apple TV
's technical upgrades, but a few key specs have eluded us
since its announcement. That's now changed, however, thanks to user aicjofs
over at XBMC's
forum, who ripped a fresh unit apart to find out exactly what's inside of its shell. Apart from its documented single-core A5 SoC, it's now confirmed that the 1080p-capable streamer features 512MB of Hynix-branded RAM (up from 256) along with an unchanged 8GB of storage, courtesy of Toshiba. Interestingly, there's no word on whether it's still packing Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR like the 2010 variant (Apple's website only lists 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi), but MacRumors
notes that aicjofs
has discovered what's possibly an additional WiFi antenna. A few parts are still under investigation, but you can check out the links below for more info.
