iPad vs iPad 2 Speed Comparison Video
Wondering how fast the iPad 2 is compared to an iPad in real world tests? This video of side-by-side speed tests shows typical iPad usage, things like booting, launching various apps, and shutting down. You’ll see the iPad 2 excels in most areas but lags, oddly, in shutting down. If you don’t want to watch the video, here are the raw numbers and the tests:
iPad 2 vs iPad Real World Speed Tests
- Booting: 25.3 vs 28.6
- Launching Infinity Blade: 10.6 vs 26
- Launching Google Earth: 17 vs 20.3
- Launch Garage Band: 3 vs 6
- Launching Angry Birds: 8 vs 10.5
- Shutting Down: 26 vs 12
Obviously this test is nonscientific and there’s nothing too groundbreaking here, but it’s interesting to watch anyway. Sure there are improvements in general speed and functionality, but I think we have yet to really see apps that really take advantage of the improved iPad 2 hardware specs.
Thanks for sending this in Davis!
