A6X Chip Inside 4th Generation iPad Runs At 1.4GHz, Confirms Advertised Speed Increase
While the A6 chip inside the iPhone 5 has been proven to be a dual-core SoC clocking at 1.3GHz, the New iPad with Retina Display (that is the fourth generation Apple slate) takes that further with an Apple A6X chip inside. While the world is waiting to get their units for review — we will have a full review coming up soon — a Geekbench result popped up of what appears to be the latest 9.7-inch tablet.
The A6X chip, by construction, adds another graphic core for a total of four (opposed to three on iPhone 5’s A6 SoC), and Apple claims it is twice as fast as the New iPad (third generation). The benchmark results seem to confirm exactly that. Also, from the numbers, we learn that this iDevice too has 1GB of RAM. The improved chip in the slate makes it even faster than the iPhone 5, which, according to our findings, delivers “uncompromising performance”.
