    Cool iPad 2 Graphics Benchmarks: Way Better Than the Xoom, Kills the Original iPad

    iPad 2 Graphics Benchmarks: Way Better Than the Xoom, Kills the Original iPad



    Anandtech put the iPad 2 under a GLBenchmark 2.0 test, a great benchmark for seeing the power of the GPU (where Apple is claiming 9x the performance of the original iPad), and came away with some staggering results.

    The iPad 2, or I guess more specifically, the A5 chip is going to be an absolute beast for 3D gaming. It's incredible, it's almost silly to put the Tegra 2 (which is in the Xoom) and A4 in the same conversation as the A5. Anandtech says:

    Developers with existing titles on the iPad could conceivably triple geometry complexity with no impact on performance on the iPad 2. [...] There's just no competition here.

    You should check out the rest of the benchmarks at Anandtech. Be sure to see the difference in graphics between the iPad 2 and original iPad with Infinity Blade too. [Anandtech]

    Good find! It was funny reading the comments on that article. The higher resolution on the Xoom hurt it's score in the benchmarking. Oh well, A Major win for IPad 2. Makes me want one even more now. So the 9X graphics of ipad1 was a true statement. I can only imagine the type of games that are possible with graphics and scores lkke that. 512mb ram is sufficient enough for ipad2.

    I was looking at that too. The tests basically destroy the Xoom.

    To be frank, I wasn't expecting to win any benchmark tests because I think that the total experience with something so personal as a tablet transcends mere specs.

    But I sure feel better knowing that it is also very competitive from another view.

    I just saw this exact benchmark over at the Xoom site and they called it bullshit. Of course they would, though.

    I could not really tell you why they said this, though. They sure do not like our iPads over there!

    Goodness. It's almost like it's personal.

    See... this is why we try to protect you Marie! There are some evil people out there with very bad attitudes! You should just stay here where it is nice and warm and fuzzy.
