Apple iPad 3 final pre-launch predictions
iPad HD – dual-core processor
Much as we’d love to see a quad-core iPad 3 (or iPad HD), we doubt that’s going to be the case. Instead, we’re expecting a slickened version of the dual-core A5 found in the iPhone 4S (dubbed A5X) to run the show. Speed freaks should keep their spirits up, though – we’re expecting the quad-core A6 to arrive later in the year when Apple launches the iPhone 5. Or iPhone 6? That’s a question for a different day.
