iPad 4 benchmarks are out, A6X chip runs at 1.4GHz, 1GB of RAM inside
When Apple officially unveiled the fourth generation iPad, it boldly stated that the new CPU that has been thrown in has twice the processing power over the previous model. Well, it looks like the claim was spot on, as the tablet's benchmark scores demonstrate. The iPad 4 with its A6X SoC managed to score 1757 points on Geekbench, which is a 111% increase in raw computations performance over the A5X running inside the third-gen iPad. In comparison, the iPhone 5, sporting an A6 chip scored 1571 points, while the iPad 2 with its A5 SoC got 780 points.

The new A6X chip that Apple introduced with the fourth-gen iPad is of the dual-core kind and is clocked at 1.4GHz, as tests show. It also features quad-core graphics in order to handle the Retina display's high resolution. That dual-core A6 chip we mentioned above is clocked slightly lower at 1.3GHz, hence the small difference in benchmark scores between it and the A6X. Apple has outfitted it with "only" three graphics cores. As far as memory is concerned, the tests confirm that the iPad 4 has 1GB of RAM, just as much as the iPad 3 and the iPhone 5 have. Lots more technical information and pretty graphs can be found at the source link below!

Guys, don't waste your time bashing and arguing with crapdroid666, it's just another alt. by one of the handful of losers that know they're stupid for buying anything from apple yet are in denial. Android has proven time and time again that it dominates anything apple has to offer that it's become too easy to prove it anymore. Instead let's celebrate Google and MS unveiling a plethora of great new tech stuff coming our way. ;)

How is buying anything from Apple stupid? They make great products that work. Hardly something I'd call stupid. Look at the benchmarks on this thing. That's impressive.

At least Apple is trying to ramp their products up in power, now they just need to give it a more advanced OS in order to take advantage of that power. iOS 7, maybe? Doubt it.

i guess wat makes it fair well with its processing power is iOS being so simple ....adding more features to catch up with android = slower OS ---> need faster hardware -----> more production cost -----> less profit per device now apple dont want that ,do they ? ...as long as the OS with its current features can sell ...why not just milk them !

this is for the apple standards!!! so android people, leave apple alone!! stop hating them, and stop saying that "android is way better" "apple's 1.4GHz vs android's 1.7GHz who's better?"---by this you just keep on giving android a very very bad name!!! you always bash other OSes just to praise android---to make android any better... but let me tell you...they are all unique individual!! very different from each other!! so stop hating!!! if you dont have something good to say, BETTER SHUT THE F U C K UP!!!!

Yeah, people are going a bit too far with these benchmarks. Even if Apple's chips are technically slower than the ones found in some Androids, just because of how light iOS is you won't be able to notice a difference. Also, it's not like 1757 isn't a respectable score. The Galaxy S3 with the Exynos scores about the same.
