GM commented on the Intel Core i5-7Y54 vs. Intel Core m3-7Y30. The specs of these two processors are compared here: http://www.cpu-monkey.com/en/compare_cpu-intel_core_i5_7y54-656-vs-intel_core_m3_7y30-657. Their specs are almost identical, with the 7Y54 rated at 2.6GHz while the 7Y30 is rated at 2.0GHz. Based upon the stated specs, there doesn't appear to be much differentiating these two processors.
I'm wondering why Xiaomi would not want to use Core 7Y54 in Mi Pad 3, which is a more powerful variant of the low-power mobile processor series in the Intel's Kaby Lake architecture, as compared to Core m3 7Y30 which is currently being rumoured to be present on the device.
Both retail at the same price. Economically, in mass production too, both should cost Xiaomi the same (whatever the bulk quote is). And hence, should make no difference in the final product cost.
Today I contacted the Customer Service reps at www.mi.com to see if I could confirm the pending release of this rumoured 9.7 Xiaomi tablet. Here's the chat response I received, copy and pasted verbatim: "I am sorry to inform you that at present we do not have any updates regarding the launch dates of the product, however I would request visit our official website www.mi.com/en regularly for updates regarding availability/launch of MiPad-3." The preceding response suggests that the Mi-Pad 3 is a REAL product!
CentrailicX, 18 Jan 2017True. xDOh, right. The iPad Pro 9.7 actually has the same resolution as this tablet. So they're both equally sharp. Yey
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2016I wonder as to how can people compare iOS with Windows and Android. All are different experien... moreSorry, I was just replying to another person's comment on the display resolution compared to something like the iPad Pro.
I wait it like icecream in the summer. It will be the first hardware to be bought first day no matter the early problems. The price is amazing.
Xiaomi, WHY? Why did you not release this epic piece of hardware?
Makes the iPad Pro 9.7 obsolete in one go :)
What a bummer! At last a W10 tablet with good specs and prize and then... *non-removable battery"! What a pity. So perhaps after 2 years you can throw it away. I 'll continue waiting for a similar product with removable battery then.
Ben, 31 Dec 2016There is a 9.7" iPad proThanks for your announcement.
stephenieyip, 30 Dec 2016still no announcement, must buy it!Xiaomi will be there at the CES 2017. You can anticipate their mi pad 3 announcement at the show. Grab the product as soon as possible before the stock washes out. It is better you preorder it at Xiaomi's website.
CentrailicX, 29 Dec 2016Well, first of all, the resolution is 2048x2732, which is not 2160p. Regular 2160p is 2160x384... moreI wonder as to how can people compare iOS with Windows and Android. All are different experiences. Please do only compare two or more Android products, two or more Windows products or that of Apple. Pick products which has the same Operating System and compare the processors first before the rest of the hardware.
The Gatsby, 16 Dec 2016Well check ipad pro.. 2160p resolution.. anyways no regret its about ur choiceWell, first of all, the resolution is 2048x2732, which is not 2160p. Regular 2160p is 2160x3840 or 2160x4096, and 2048x2732 is not any of those two. Second of all, the iPad pro has a larger display at 12.9" compared to the Mi Pad 3's 9.7" display, meaning a higher resolution would be required to reach the same pixel density on the iPad Pro. Thirdly, if you look at the pixel densities of the screens of both the iPad Pro and the Mi Pad 3, you'll see that they have the exact same pixel density of 264. Well anyways have a nice day. :D
Anonymous, 27 Dec 2016buy surface pro 4 with core core i5 and 8 gb ram....its a bit costly but worth the moneyYes definitely one can opt for Surface book depending upon how deep your pocket is, but, as far as I am concerned a good business man or a professional will not expend their money unnecessarily. Rich people are rich just because they always plan before they expend. Now, the world warrants more wisdom to survive.

Dip, 26 Dec 2016Can a Mi Pad from Xiaomi be expected with higher processor than Atom etc. I am a software pro... moreHello Sir, very eager to reply. The world once survived even without a bulb. I wonder why the world struggles now. It is because and only because of technological advancements. Technology has driven people lazy. Now everyone needs everything in their pocket. People are driven to walk only if they ere diabetic. Well to answer your question being a professional how had you survived all there days. Why don't you take a pinch of salt from your past to sweeten your meal. No one would reject your project if you provide the demo with your laptop. Why fancy tags. What will you do if your capable tablet ditches you in the middle of your demo. I am sorry to say that technology is driving people crazy and sick. I pray God that these technological advancements shouldn't become the cause to the end of our world.
X-Nerd, 19 Dec 2016This tablet is a Surface Pro 4 Killer, because it has: - Most common applications capability:... moreSo you are going to mess up your table with dock stations, different sorts of cables, a decent sized monitor to connect your mi pad, etc. As far as I am concerned I am planning to go for a decent 7th gen desktop as I don't believe in laptops even since, even laptops too have its limitations. I do not mean to say that I don't own a tablet. I do own and I use it for its own specific purposes but, definitely not as my desktop. For me it is just a reader and diary. Nothing more or nothing less. Well; belief system varies between different people.
Can a Mi Pad from Xiaomi be expected with higher processor than Atom etc.
I am a software professional and willing to provide demo for my hospital domain software, which hopefully not possible as there the application is having RDBMS (Oracle 8i till 10G) in the backend which cannot be installed in a Atom or a lower chipset processor.
Is any chances that Mi Pad comes in higher grade processor so that our problems are solved.
