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.

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


No but some people are taking it way out of context just for he sake of arguing and being anti-apple.

Apple just says "Hey we put this really high-res display on this device, if we didn't bump up the processing power you would get laggy performance, which would be so unlike the iPad experience. So we increased graphics performance by adding more GPU performance to our already fast chip"

From the Apple site :"
The A5X chip with quad-core graphics drives four times the pixels of iPad 2 yet it delivers the same smoothness and fluidity iPad is known for. "

Every single mention of the A5x is coupled with the Retina Display feature.

It appears you have utterly misunderstood basic english or are just trying to argue for the sake of arguing or both.
