Whenever Apple releases a new iPad, the company makes a tradition of not revealing how much RAM it packs, leaving the task to journalists and tech experts. According to a new benchmark, the iPad Air 2 has a triple-core A8X processor with 2 gigabytes of RAM.
The A8 CPU found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is a dual-core processor with 1 gigabyte of RAM, which was also revealed by the same benchmark. Benchmarks of another "iPad5,4" have showed up via GeekBench with similar information, revealing a 1.5-gigahertz clock speed.
At its launch events, Apple prefers to focus on performance improvements instead of revealing just the 'dry' tech specs. And this is a good strategy, since bare numbers can't tell too much about how a product fares.
Nonetheless, now you now that your fresh iPad Air 2 is a triple-core tablet which sports 2GB of RAM, as well. Also, you need to know that the A8X chip is said to be 40 percent faster than the A7 processor found in the first iPad Air.
