"50% more than the dual-core version of the same GPU that is in the Apple iPad 2"

New GPU = 4 cores
Old GPU = 2 cores

Of course it's going to be 50%, were you expecting anything less?

Actually, according to your logic, 4 vs 2 would be a 100% improvement (i.e. twice the power). "50% more" is 1.5 times the power of the 2 core GPU.

In computing, there's a factor of scaling when more cores are added. If there hasn't been any architectural improvements within the core then scalability will decrease. Besides software has to be optimize in order to utilize more cores.

I think that will take a long long time before that happens.
Tablets can't compete with pc's and ps3/x360.
And keep in mind that the x360 is already here since 2005 ;)

Which is sad since it's really the most you can do with it.

You can't even play hardcore games since it lacks a keyboard\mouse and\or a controller.

You're a pathetic hater. You can do more on an iPad than any other tablet because of the apps. Unlike android developers actually make apps for the iPad.

Apps apps apps? That's all you guys have huh? Guess what? There are no launcher apps for you, no proper file manager app, no task manager app, no real office app since you know using iTunes and all, don't expect to do any real work on that.

So all your "apps" are basically just games and fart apps. Have fun with that. You give tacos a bad name...change it to something no one cares about

definitely enough results, maybe even more than enough but not enough to live up to the hype they started at the announcement.

that's cool and all, but i just can't really get into gaming on a tablet/phone. i need physical controls like a vita or 3ds.

oh and how many times can you say "we kid" in an article?

i'll say this for Apple they were much smarter than Samsung when it came to deciding what GPU to use. Samsung should have stayed strong with IT.

Watch out there's a new sherrif in town;P

Yes i'll admit it, I have no problem saying there is a better product. Is it the best right now, sure but that's subjective to your taste. Will it be in the future not likely, that's the beauty of technology there is always something better around the corner.
