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.

In the realm of ARM, "quad-core" graphics literally means "4 GPUs". Especially when it comes to the PowerVR GPUs. An SGX543 has 1 GPU "core" (ie, 1 GPU). An SGX543MP2 has 2 GPU "cores" (ie, 2 GPUs). And, an SGX543MP4 has 4 GPU "cores" (ie, 4 GPUs).

In the ARM GPU sphere, "multi-core" means "multi-GPU". Think of it in terms of nVidia's SLI and Ati's CrossFire. Not in terms of processing units inside the individual GPUs.
