Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

Quad core CPU doesn't mean fast cpu either.


Well, it sort of does in practice.

Slow quad core cpu doesn't make sense, since 4 cores is the "high end". It's cheaper to make a dual core cpu that runs at a faster rate than quad core cpu, so if you have a slow quad core cpu, nobody's going to use it.


Apple markets the quad core gpu as means to drive the massive pixels in the new high res display.


Yes, again, fast GPU is important.

Quick, can you name a devite with single core gpu? Or dual core GPU? How many GPU cores does a random ATI radeon have? Or Galaxy S 2?.

It's just marketing. And apparently it's fooling people even here ;-).
