    Hey, so i am an electronics novice but i am very interested. I had an old itouch 2nd generation that wasnt working anymore so i decided to take it apart and i found what i think to be the main processing chip(no clue what the technical term is haha). So what i was wanting was for someone to tell me what the four place chips on the board are. Which is the CPU, GPU, and others. Also, if its off the top of your head, about how many transisters are in this specific microprocessor. Thanks guys

    PS: hopefully the link to my image works...

    The two large Samsung chips appear to be 64G bit flash memory devices.

    The apple logos indicate that they are Apple Computer ASICS, i.e. designed by Apple, not purchased by Apple. Thus you may have difficulty getting much detail about their internals.
