    I'm sure Apple could have really good battery life even with a quad-core processor... it's the iPhone that I am worried about

    Lets hope they will put quad-core! You are right about iPhone concern.

    The iPad does not necessarily need a quad core to be fast. Apple has done some really wicked things with iOS to make it work at quad core speeds while keeping power use low.

    Maybe you are right, modified iOS with enhanced dual core can give good results! But that is very tricky & I hope that Apple made great job, because that rumored Retina display requires very powerful hardware (imagine 3D game for iPad 3 in full resolution)

    Quad-core processors are even more battry efficient than dual-core. Just look at the Asus Transformer Prime. If anything, Apple is even more inclined to make it quad-core.

    My thoughts was opposite, I thought quad core is less battery efficient :eek:

    Than there is serious chance for quad core?

    The latest reports supports a quad core, but only time will tell. One of the future chip sets reported to be in the works for future models, was essentially two processors. One for 90% of the tasks that do not need a lot of power, and another that kicks in for power needs.

    I am not so well informed about processor architecture. But if there is possibility to make that kind of processor, that would bi ideal for device like iPad (that needs as much as possible energy efficient processor)
