More evidence, available recently, supports the idea that Apple will double iPad 3’s/HD’s RAM to 1GB. As the countdown for today’s event approaches the end, all bets are on.

We all remember the original iPad coming with 256 MB of RAM, and the iPad 2 featuring 512 MB – the same amount as the iPhone 4. In a logical order, the next iPad should feature 1GB of RAM, as we actually do expect. An iOS hacker (you all know Chronic) seems to agree with this hypothesis after studying a debug output from an iPad development unit, believed to be the third generation of Cupertino’s tablet. Using this line — “vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages” – he calculated the future iPad, which will be announced today, to have 1GB of RAM. This is his calculation: “244,276 (pages) x 4,096 bytes (size of a page) = 1,000,554,496 bytes = 1GB (rounded).”

If the higher resolution Retina display will also confirm, more RAM is indeed needed, in order to support new iPad’s larger image files and textures. Stay tuned to find more soon.
