Apple TV (2012) uses same chip as iPad 2 but only uses one core

The latest Apple TV was torn down recently, but it still has a surprise or two up its sleeve. According to a report in Chipworks, the 2012 unit has a dual-core A5 chip that's only using one of its two cores. They discovered it's actually the same 32nm SoC found in newer iPad 2 units. You can read more about the Apple TV's underlying architecture on Chipworks's website.
