Did they say how much more memory the ipad2 will have than the 1st iPad?
512 mb of ram. Thats double ipad 1 had at 256mb.
Where did you find that info? I haven't seen anything about the amount RAM in the new iPad.
Rumors and guesses based on Apples previous upgrade strategy of the iPhone.
So many people are asking for info on RAM. I honestly don't get it. Is it because you think the device is slow or underperforming? Or is it that you are fixated on that spec? It seems people are just interested in the number, for the number's sake only. If the device is fast and performs well, who cares what that number is?
The iPad 1 only has 256MB of RAM, but honestly I have had no problems with the performance. iPad 2 performs even better, so that's all that should matter. iOS takes care of the rest. Who cares whether it's 1GB or 512MB?
Lots of people here are tech people and wanting to know the amount of system RAM is a pretty normal question I think. When you buy a computer chances are that is one of the first things you check and the iPad is a computing device. I have seen some issues with the small amount of RAM, mainly when scrolling through large or graphically intense web pages, but otherwise I agree 256MB is generally enough right now. I also have some issues with apps not starting if too many are being "multi-tasked" but I imagine with double the RAM we will just get double the apps in hibernation so I don't see more memory fixing that.
iPad1 : 1 x A4 CPU with 256 MB RAM
iPhone4 : 1 x A5 CPU with 512 MB RAM
iPad2 : 2 x A5 CPUs...
I hope it has more than 512 MB RAM.
The iPhone has the a4 chip not the a5 and until someone breaks it down and confirms the actual amount of RAM you shouldn't assume anything.
I am just curious, personally. A concrete figure on the actual amount of RAM would be nice to know. I know it will run well, as the Apple products are more tightly integrated, but coming from a PC/Win background, I just can't help wanting to know LOL. I get a vague idea of the kind of games and such that may appear if there is more RAM than iPad 1. Emphasize the word "vague" on that LOL.
It is 512mb i published it on another thread
512mb is more than enough for the iPad That is double what the iPad1 is. It is the same as iPhone 4 so please do not compare android with Apple you have 2 different operating systems and different hardware I suggest you wait for testing and reviews once it ships
