Brief Bits: New iPad’s CPU is Dual-Core, GPU is Quad-Core

The word choice that Apple used to explain the new processor in the new iPad was quite clever, as it left many unsure about whether the tablet was truly a dual-core or quad-core tablet. The true answer is that Apple’s new A5X system-on-a-chip processor is in fact dual-core, but contains a quad-core graphics unit. This means that graphics in intensive games like Infinity Blade will be much smoother and perform much better on the Apple tablet.
