HELSINKI, FINLAND - March 20, 2011 - Futuremark®, the world leader in performance benchmarking software, today released the first benchmark results for the new iPad using Peacekeeper™, its free to use browser speed test. While web pages may look sharper on the new iPad's improved display, the benchmark results show that the browsing performance of the new iPad is

the same as the iPad 2, suggesting that the computational processing power in both devices is near identical.


Peacekeeper is an HTML5 based browser performance test that can be used to measure and compare the performance of any browser on any Internet capable device, from desktops and notebooks, to tablets and smartphones.
