After running some tests on and off video it seems that the new Apple A5X processing chip does not have much improvement over its little brother the A5 chip. The “new” A5X is supposed to have a bit of a speed bump but through tests the chip does not seem to out preform the A5 chip. Both chips are dual core and the A5X is supposed to have a speed bump however, the chips seem to run at the same speed. Testing has also been done and it has been observed that the new iPad 3 has 1GB of RAM and the iPad 2 has 512 MB of RAM.

The A5X chip is certainly not a slow chip at all. It handles the new retina display and quad core graphics. The point I would just like to make known is that it is not an improvement over the A5. The video below shows a shutdown, turn on, and safari website load tests vs a jailbroken iPad 2.

    I don’t know what he did to that iPad 3 (I know, not official name) but mine is WAY faster. Mine shuts down faster than that iPad 2, and boots in half the time of their ipad 3. I’m not an expert, as this is my first iPad, but I’m no idiot.

    I have the iPad 1 and 2 I think the only reason I would get the iPad 3 is for the screen I persionaly like the iPad 1 since it will alway have a jailbreak right away so ya that’s my take on this

    I think it is completely unfair to say that the A5X @is not an improvement’ from the A5 as it is now handling a resolution 4X more, handles battery life just as good too.  To have a crystal clear screen quality and not losing speed is amazing.

    Sorry, but i can’t se the difference while opening web pages. If i buy the ipad 3, wpuld be only for its amazing display. For now, i’m happy with my ipad 2.
