Geekbench Test Indicates 1GB of RAM in New iPad

As suggested by The Verge last week, Apple’s new iPad does in fact have 1GB of RAM as evidenced by a Geekbench test performed by this Vietnamese man on the new tablet.

The benchmark test also reveals that the new iPad is powered by a dual-core 1 GHz processor, which was confirmed last week after some initial confusion following Apple’s iPad media event.

The new iPad features a high-resolution Retina display, dual-core A5X chip with a quad-core graphics processor, 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, compatibility with 4G LTE cellular networks, Siri voice dictation for speech-to-text, and the release of iPhoto for iPad and updated iLife and iWork app suites to boot.

While preorders for the new iPad have sold out, with shipping dates adjusted accordingly, the tablet officially launches in retail stores on Friday on a first come, first serve basis. Will you be camping outside of your local Apple Retail Store, Best Buy, or other big box retailer to get your hands on the coveted tablet?
