iPad 4 Benchmarks Show 2X Faster Than iPad 3, 1GB RAM & 1.4GHZ A6X CPU
Recent benchmarks for iPhone 5 were very impressive, but now those impressive numbers have been broken by another Apple product: the iPad 4. Not only is the iPad 4 faster than the brand new iPhone 5, it’s much faster than the iPad 3, offerring over two times the performance of the previous model.
For those who like the technical details of performance, the iPad 4’s speed boost is achieved with an A6X dual-core 1.4GHz processor alongside 1GB of RAM, as revealed by the Geekbench app where the benchmarks came from. The A6X CPU at 1.4GHz is slightly faster than the A6 CPU included in the iPhone 5, which runs at 1.3GHz.
