It runs on an A5X processor, which includes a quad-core graphics module. Apple said the processor is twice as fast as the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset and four times faster than that in terms of graphic performance.
Quad-core GRAPHICS module...
No earth shattering advances or innovation just variations on the same theme. A little disappointing given recent advances in technology. Fundamental Apple fans no doubt will get a warm wet feeling but for those looking for greater flexibility and practical solutions will certainly look at their options. On a positive note mind you, great product for new comers who don't understand technology, its simple to use and doesn't require great intellect to operate, a great consumer product for the masses since the only the only decision they need to make is black or white so I think Apple should do well selling the product.

don't get them mixed up.
now we can guess what iPad 4 will be:
Same as ipad 2 BUT with a better sound quality (and maybe a little heavier)!!! i think i'll wait for that one...

really no quad core CPU I'm disappointed that nobody can keep up with android except windows but honestly who would buy a windows tablet?
mehrshad, 07 Mar 2012A5X is a quad core cpu no dual core cpuit's a dual core cpu, with quad core gpu

Sorry no IPad3 for me; I have to buy iGas4.0.
I will also be saving to pay for iGas5.0 ...coming out this summer!
Plus if you have $600 go buy a freakin laptop...it will run loops around the Ipad
