Some tech blogs are speculating that iPad 2 will be like iPhone 3GS and iPad 3 will be like iPhone 4. A little jump from 1 to 2 and a big jump from 2 to 3. If 3 does come out in the fall I will be tempted.
iPad 32gb wifi, Evo 4g, Nook 3g, CR-48
So can anyone tell me what graphics processor they would use to drive a 2048x1536 screen while playing games like Infinity Blade?? Because nothing out on the market right now would come close. MAYBE, and this is a big maybe, MAYBE they could pull it off with the graphics processor of the NGP, sony's new PSP. They claim its roughly 4x better than any graphics processor out now and it would need to be because it would be running 4x the pixels. I don't think Apple usually likes to cut it that close. And since the NGP is set to hit for Holiday 2011, I doubt there would be near the scale available of these chips to produce the iPad3.
It just doesn't make sense.
That's the same thing I said when everyone started getting excited about that impossible double resolution theory. I wanna know what moron made that up. Shows you how gullible people are.
Nvidia announced its quad core processors with 12 core GPU's. Sounds years away right? Nope, August of this year for tablets and the end of the year for phones. They will smoothly run hugely complex multimedia at 2560*1440 resolution on a 10" tablet.
If Apple is going to continue using its own processor they better come up with something big for the iPad 3. If they want to stay competitive in the market though.
Just for reference, the iPhone 4's screen is 326 DPI, this will be 300DPI and the current iPad is 132DPI so it's a huge difference in clarity.
Looks like I'll be upgrading my Motorola Xoom in August.
