The previous generation A5, part number APL0498, was manufactured on Samsung Semiconductors’ 45 nm LP CMOS process. This new A5 processor is manufactured on Samsung’s new 32 nm high-k metal gate, gate first, LP CMOS process technology.
Looks like Samsung very possible to continues to manufacture A5X and A6 in the near future.

Sounds like a good pipe cleaner product to test 32nm. 70mm^2 is a far more reasonable size for an ARM SoC too.

I wonder if the iPad 2 with 32nm A5 has a longer battery life? I guess that the display uses most of the power though.
