    I have been hearing a lot about the ipad 3 processor and I am curious about it's going to be a dual-core with a faster cpu, a quad-core with the same cpu, or quad-core with a faster cpu?

    The latest intel is that it will be dual core. It will be the A6 processor which means a lot faster. Apple has a tendency to maximize their software to make slower clock speed processors work more efficient. You get the feel of more power and RAM without the battery penalty.

    i would be happy if it was a dual core A6 processor this would keep the cost down. i just hope they put more ram in it like 1 gig

    This sounds like very good combination - Dual core & 1 GB RAM. I hope we will see something like this.

    I really hope the iPad 3 will be quad-core. Seriously, the Android tablets will all have quad-core processors soon (looking at you, Asus Transformer Prime). If the iPad 3 doesn't have one, it'll be completely outclassed throughout the entire year of 2012 except for the screen, which will only be slightly better than the plastic Asus Transformer Prime.

    I'm pretty sure the processor will be quad-core though because of the pictures from iBoot. Those "sources" that say that the iPad 3 will be dual-core are anonymous. We don't know who they are nor how reputable they are. For all we know they could come from the old man across the street or, worse, an Android fanboy.

    The cpu may remain as dual core but the gpu may be extended to quad core

    I am hoping the iPad 3 will be quad-core but that would mean the iPhone 5 is going to quad-core because they will both get the A6 processor... and I personally think smartphone makers (including Apple) should focus on battery life... so with that in mind do you think they should do.

    This is the reason why we will probably see dual-core on iPad 3. Battery life is one of priorities that Apple wants to keep for iPad. 50% more powerful dual core processor & 1 Gb or RAM sounds good to me.
