NowGamer: iPad 2's astonishing official specs reveal a device that could rival current-gen consoles for the space under your TV...
Well the NGP is only 4 times faster than the Ipad. So what gives?
HDMI out and video is awesome - if its HD
Yup, they say it is on the site.
Without 'Flash' support, iPad 2 is DOA. There are miles better tablets on the market that will wipe the floor with this on price, features. Tablets are pointless
Get a life Marty. You are posting the same thing in every Ipad thread.
Name a tablet that has these specs and is in a better price bracket?
it doesnt need flash support. Things are transitioning to html 5 faster than flash can keep updating itself. Even silverlight is better than flash these days.
I seriously doubt an iPad 2 is more powerful then the 360 and PS3 under my tv.
Why do you think its so hard beating 6 yr old tech on a handheld in todays time?
If you watch the keynote, Steve says that the graphics is 9x faster than the original iPad. Nowhere did he said anything about 360 or PS3.
Processing power alone I'm not sure how they concluded that this would be anywhere near the performance of the current generation HD consoles. This isn't as 'powerful' as the NGP either. The NGP has 4 cores running between 800mz and 2ghz, the Ipad 2 has 2 cores running at 1ghz. 3.2ghz-8ghz NGP vs 2ghz Ipad. Given that the NGP is weaker than our current generation of consoles, and the Ipad is of significantly weaker performance than that. This really isn't anything to get excited over. It's a pretty predictable step forward in regards to performance for the Ipad line.
Multi-core processors don't work like that. You don't just add up the frequencies.
4 cores clocking at 800-2000mhz. Adding that up seemed a good means of acquiring a rough estimate of performance? Regardless the NGPs CPU clearly packs way more punch than the Ipad 2s.
Same type of GPU as the NGP -- a PowerVR SGX534MP. Apple didn't specify the clock speed or number of cores, though.
who cares? who the hell needs or wants a tablet? wtf? people are retarded
15 million people (april-december 2010) apparently.
they only want it because it is made by apple and they will blindly buy whatever crap apple throws at them.
People with jobs.
It amazes me when someone asks something like "who the hell needs or wants a tablet?" or who the hell needs or wants a (insert product of choice here) about anything that is selling quite well. If you have to ask then it isn't for you, just move along. Yes, many people who do buy this may be Apple or tech fanatics, but I have to say this device (or any tablet, doesn't have to be Apple's) is very useful from a business stand point. Each of my employees use one when meeting with clients, and the amount of things that can be done and shown while constantly moving around is significant. A very flexible tool to conduct business. While I was attending the NY International gift show a few weeks ago, almost every vendor had an iPad. It was incredible all the different ways these people were using them, some ways I didn't even think of or knew could be done, great new ideas for my company. So the statement "people are retarded" can only come from the truly ignorant.
without flash why would you want to view half the web lol. id love an ipad 2,but id also like to see all of the web with its video without apps for diff sites just to view the video.anyway better android tablets are coming out
