    iPad 2 is 4x Faster than Original iPad


    Cnet uk reports that it managed to run a quick benchmark test on the iPad 2 during its brief hands-on session with the upgraded tablet. They tested how quickly the iPad 2 deals with JavaScript, and found that it did “incredibly well”, beating all rival devices that cnet had performed the same test on previously, including the original iPad, which was 4x slower than the iPad 2, with the Galaxy Tab being more than 3x slower than the iPad 2, as was the Google Nexus S smartphone.

    Cnet puts the iPad 2’s impressive speed down to the new dual-core processor, as well as iOS 4.3, which is due to be released next Friday, March 11, and which, according to Cnet, changes the way iOS devices deal with JavaScript, speeding it up. Cnet says that with a beta version of iOS 4.3 installed on the original iPad, the speed gap between iPad 2 and iPad 1 “narrowed considerably”, with the iPad 2 being just 1.5x faster than the iPad 1 running iOS 4.3. So, looks like we’re all going to get a nice surprise with some improved performance when we download iOS 4.3 next Friday!

    Surely this title is a bit misleading - the only fair comparison is IOS4.3 in which case the iPad 2 is clearly not 4x as fast!

    An original iPad is more than twice as fast at Javascript with 4.3 compared to 4.2. That's some speed-up. Well done to the Apple devs.

    It will be hilarious when all those people (my friends) read this article after scurrying around putting their old Ipad on Craigslist and other sites just to get a few hundred dollars... so that they can upgrade to Ipad 2.... I tell you people wait for Ipad 3, trust me!

    Thank you IPAD for giving me a vehicle to transport all those random thoughts...

    Exactly what I was thinking. In fact I think it is more impressive that the "original" iPad (didn't know it "originally came with 4.2 ) is that much faster when running 4.3.

    This is more about 4.3 than iPad 2 IMHO.

    Good to hear but doubt it's anywhere near a factor of four.

    Lol, I so agree with this. I will be ordering the iPad on March 11 and won't regret it for one single second.

    Same here.

    Those who are always waiting for something better down the road fail to enjoy the joys of today. Life is short. Enjoy it today. I don't regret owning my iPad 1 for one second, and will enjoy every second of owning my iPad 2.

    Those who wait will miss out, but think that somehow they've outsmarted the rest of us, and feel compelled to 'warn' everyone they can, while they hold onto older tech and long for tech that hasn't happened yet, blind to what is in front of them now. This type of thinking leads to needless waiting and cynicism towards those who seize the day.
