On Wednesday, Apple heralded the arrival of their latest tablet - the iPad 2012. It is not called the iPad 3 or the iPad HD for that matter, but it does host a wide selection of improved features and new technology. It's time to trade up from the iPad 2.
The new A5X quad-core graphics processor
Although the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 both use Appleundefineds custom-designed A5 system-on-a-chip, the iPad 2012 is powered by the new A5X chip, offering four times the performance of the Tegra 3 processor that powers Android tablets. The chip is so graphic-intensive that it is unlikely to be used in the next iPhone.
