    The new Apple iPad will come with the all new A5X processor and quad-core graphics! Comparing to a Tegra 3, Apple says the A5 is "twice as fast" and the A5X offers "four times the‚Äč performance." Not sure of the benchmark here, folks.

      The A5X sounds like a monster. The Tegra 3 was a bit disappointing to be honest. Seems like everyone else is going to be playing catch-up yet again.

      Holy mother of awesome Batman. Quad Core iPad!

      It says on the website the a5x is dual core with extra graphics.

      To be honest, there is not much reason to buy this iPad other than a great new display. As usual apple went on and on about updates for apps. That can happen any time and isn't relevant at all.

      Quote from apple website

      "Dual-core Apple A5X custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip with quad-core graphics"

      So it's actually still dual core... Yawn lol

      Im still buying one. It will still be faster than any other tablet on the market, and its the most successful tablet in the world.

      Not enough to make me upgrade from an iPad 2.
