So, three good bits of additional news on the new iPad (or third-generation iPad, if you prefer accuracy). The first, being that the Apple A5 SoC (system-on-a-chip) is still clocked at 1GHz dual-core, like the iPad 2, but with more RAM: a whole 1GB, to be exact — this allows for a smoother and more responsive experience overall in iOS. Then comes the fact that the graphics performance is indeed improved because the A5X has quad-core graphics processors, and dual-core computational processors, as I mentioned before.
It really is a marvel, really — Apple never talks nerd-level specs like I do (and many other tech sites/bloggers/geeks/etc.), but when it comes to other manufacturers trying to replicate the efforts of Apple, even using similair hardware setups, the competition generally remains stagnant: the iPad can’t be beat. Yet.
Oh, and it launches nationwide (in the United States) at 8AM at all Apple Stores. Details here.
