Apple iPad 2 specs probed, powered by a 900MHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 chip

Apple iPad 2 specs, more than meets the eye

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Mar 14, 2011 1:11 am

AnandTech have probed the iPad 2 and found what makes her tick. That tick comes in the form of a dual-core ARM chip that is clocked at around 900MHz with the graphics side of the iPad 2 being powered by a dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP3 GPU on the die.

With those powers combined, I am Captain Planet, I mean, much more powerful than the original iPad. This performance increase is not just a little it's actually quite significant. When using GLBenchmark, the iPad 2 pushes 57.6 frames per second, the higher-res Tegra 2-powered Motorola Xoom can process at 26.7 fps while the original iPad can only pull 17.6 fps.

 

Not quite the "9X faster graphics", but you get the picture.
