Hardware, Embedded Systems And yet another item on the iPad? Are we serious? Yes, we are, since this one is about something that even geeks who aren't interested in the iPad itself should find intriguing. Steve Jobs said yesterday that the iPad is powered by an Apple A4 processor, but contrary to what many seem to think - it wasn't designed in-house at all.

ARM Mali 50? Sounds fishy.

The ARM Mali 5X series are fixed point OpenGL ES 1.X GPUs. And the SDK supports GL ES 2.0. If this chip uses a Mali GPU - that should be the Mali 200 or Mali 400 GPU.
