iPad vs iPad 2 Speed Comparison Video

Apr 24, 2011 - 5 Comments

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!

    With 30 days standby time, I don’t think I’d ever need to shut it down.

      Not if you are still waiting for your iPad 2 to arrive. I bought one last week after fighting lines at the Apple Store since the release date. Scheduled to arrive Thursday, finally.

      What the video doesn’t show is the snappiness of iPad 2 compared to iPad 1, just using the two you’ll feel a large speed difference. I’d prefer some more in depth performance testing, where you really see the difference is in the dual cores and GPU.
