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.

granthinds2787d ago

Name a tablet that has these specs and is in a better price bracket?

darthv722787d ago

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.

Ranshak2787d ago

Why do you think its so hard beating 6 yr old tech on a handheld in todays time?

Narutone662787d ago

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.

ChronoJoe2787d ago

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.
