Early iPad (4th generation) benchmarks posted
If this latest report from Primate Labs is accurate, then customers who snag a fourth-generation iPad on Friday will be pleased with the device's performance. According to a Geekbench result that appeared on Sunday, Apple's latest tablet outperforms all other recent iOS devices, including the iPhone 5.
The iPad (fourth generation) scored a 1,757, which is 10 percent higher than the iPhone 5's 1,571 score and more than twice as fast as the third-generation iPad, which scored 791. The results also show that the iPad 4 has a dual-core Apple A6 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which is slightly higher than the 1.3GHz of the iPhone 5.
Customers can buy an iPad (fourth generation) starting November 2 at Apple retail stores. The base 16 GB WiFi model with Retina display will cost US$499. Customers can still pre-order an iPad, but the tablet won't ship for another week.
