iPad 3 Benchmarked: 1 GHz Processor, 1GB of RAM

While we’re still waiting for the new iPad to fall into our hands and smudge that beautiful Retina display with our disgusting finger oils, the guys at Tinhte have run their iPad 3 through Geekbench and got some interesting results…

The processor is clocked at 1GHz and is of the same class as the iPad 2 processor.

The RAM is indeed 1GB confirming numerous previous reports including our own whispers.

The mid-700 score is similar to the iPad 2, which scores also scores in the mid-700s, while the original iPad scores in the 400s. The difference is likely due to the benchmarking software’s inability to test the 4 core GPU or the “X” factor in the iPad’s new A5X chip.
