    Reports Say iPad 2 Will Have 512 MB of RAM and an A5 CPU


    Engadget has a report today detailing some of the iPad 2’s new features, with tip-offs which it says come from sources who are usually “dead right”. Although Engadget had previously reported that an SD card slot and higher resolution display would both be supported, it now says that neither feature will be making it into the final model, due to “engineering issues”, which have forced Apple to make some last-minute changes. So just exactly what will the new iPad 2 have that makes it worth buying then, especially if you’ve already got the first version? Well from what Engadget says, the biggest change is the addition of the front- and rear-facing cameras. Aside from that, their sources tell them that the iPad 2 will be thinner, with 512 MB of RAM, and a more powerful CPU, the A5. Engadget also speculates that Apple will release iOS 5 at the same time as the iPad 2, as well as expanding its cloud services.

    Looking forward to hearing more details on the A5 CPU on March 2nd.

    Hopefully they go in depth about it and give some kind of performance benchmarks.

    For the iPad to be able to compete, it needs AT LEAST 1 GB of RAM.
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    With the apps that apple have, their opinion is that they do not need 1GB of ram

    They will go with 512mb, and save 1 GB for the 3 rd version of iPad with a "retina" display.

    No retina display per the rumor mill. I'd buy one anyway.

    All indications are that the Apple A5 will be built around the Cortex A9 processor which should be fairly equivalent to the Tegra 2 chip running on the Xoom platform (which also uses the Cortex A9). That should be a nice speed increase.
