Apple’s New iPad Features 1GB RAM and 1GHz Processor

The Cupertino-based technology giant Apple remained quiet typically over the specifications of the new tablet device. However, the benchmark tests unveil that the company has incorporated 1GB of memory in its device to assist its upgraded A5X processor that also ticks at 1GHz.

According to reports, the company had made its new iPad stronger enough to sport more RAM. A tweet from iOS tinkerer Sonny Dickson confirmed the reports, as he revealed through a screenshot from a Geekbench benchmark test that listed memory totaling 988MB.

Dickson went a step further by comparing the Geekbench score calculated for the new iPad (756) with the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. He stated that the Apple’s new tablet easily and expectedly one-up the company’s latest smartphone iPhone 4S (751). Moreover, the Geekbench score also revealed that the latest tablet performed just only better than its one year old model, iPad 2 (751).

It clearly shows that the current A5X processor has exactly the same clock speed as the A5 processor in the iPad 2. The only major difference lies in its widened graphics capability that offers improved performance for the new iPad’s Retina Display.

We have to wait for some time to have a full hardware teardown for the new iPad. Enthusiasts are very keen to assess the components used in the tablet to work out its manufacturing cost as well as the ways the Cupertino-based tech giant has improved the design of new tablet. The only thing that we can confirm now is that the tablet has 1GB of RAM under its hood.
