    Lightbulb iPad 2 faster than a MacBook Pro for iMovie?

    Is the iMovie on the iPad 2 Really Faster Than on a MacBook Pro?

    It's easy to assume a MacBook Pro would outgun an iPad in iMovie speed tests, due to its beefier processor and extra RAM. But AppAdvice found that both iPad models bested the MacBook Pro in multiple tests. What gives?



    Well there could be a couple of explanations why this is the case. First, the video was raw video taken from an iPod touch, which features the same chipset as the original iPad.

    Because the same hardware used to shoot the video as it was to process/export it, the iPad hardware (especially the first gen model) is better optimized for the task than a MacBook Pro.

    Secondly, that hardware has a dedicated H.264 chip (which, as Jason points out, is similar in concept to the outboard USB dongles used for video processing). So it's not terribly shocking that the iPad performs as well as it does.

    That said, those reasons dont make it any less impressive that a device the size of a magazine can do what it does. [AppAdvice]

    Obviously, iMovie has been optimized to run on the iPad. So, the two versions may not have comparable performance.
    Also, it is obvious that the Desktop version of iMovie will have MORE features than the iOS version.

    That's interesting that it's bettered by both iPad 1 & 2, especially as iMovie isn't available for iPad 1?

    Gee build a mobile app that has barely a subset of its desktop equivalent's features and it runs faster. Surprising? Uh, no.
