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.

But quad core graphics doesn't mean anything generally.


*chokes*

You aware that graphics are massively parallelizable, right?


but "quad core graphics" does not mean fast graphics (while quad core cpu generally does mean fast cpu)


You have it the other way around. Graphics are much more parallelizable than general purpose computing. Hence the reason why you'll find a multitude of processing cores on modern graphic processors.
