Details of iPad 3 Processor Rumors

This report also said that the processor of new iPad is still the Cortex-A9 schema, but comes with the ability to process data as well as an ordinary PC.
The latest news on the 2nd of this month has exposed a document in which it implies that the new iPad will soon be equipped with A6 processors. BGR also confirmed the model of the A4 chip is S5L8930X and A5 is S5L8940X. So the S5L8945X which showed in the leaked document apparently means A6 chips.
Then if the current exposed picture of is true, it at least proves that a new iPad with A6 chip still won't appear. According to the Motherboard information display, the A5X chip was manufactured in the forty-sixth week of 2011. This chip is also equipped with a modern 16-gigabyte (GB) NAND flash memory from Hynix. At the same time, compare with the chip found in iPad 2 dismantling, the new power management chip has a higher dash number. This means that the chip is also part of the motherboard chipset upgrade.
So there is someone point out that the conclusion that BGR given for the leaked document is wrong. After all A4 chip model is S5L8930X, A5 is S5L8940X, then the A6 should be S5L8950X rather than S5L8945X. Therefore, the conclusion inferred by combining with the motherboard exposure would be more close to the truth.
But no matter how it reported before, since this picture displays that Apple will use A5X, then it means that the upcoming product will has a faster and better processing performance. No matter it will be named as iPad 3 or iPad 2S, it may have significantly enhanced graphics core undoubtedly. Since there comes with rumor which said the iPad will launch on the upcoming March 7th, so just let's look forward what would be the specific facts in the end.
