The iPad Benchmarked, Faster than the iPhone

As we all know finally the iPad hit the stores in US and anyone living over there can own it!. It has been a great time for some people coz they look busy with the benchmarking the iPap with iPhone 3GS.  The developers of Twitterrific, a Twitter application published benchmark results comparing the iPhone 3GS running iPhone OS 3.0 and iPad running iPhone OS 3.2. Looks like huge applications such as games can be loaded faster and the overall experience is rapid. iPad is much faster than the iPhone, so we will be able to see some rich graphics applications running faster.

According to a benchmark done by Hockenberry for performance indicated the iPad running iPhone OS 3.0 was twice as faster than the iPhone 3GS running iPhone OS 3.2 when running native applications which are basd on Cocoa Touch, all the credits go to the new Apple A4 system-on-a-chip (SoC) which has been used in the iPad.

But as in Anad Tech’s benchmarking the Apple A4 (SoC) helps the iPad run faster compared to the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chip which is clocked at 1GHz. In his next test, the iPad with Snapdragon processor based Google’s Nexus one mobile phone showed a considerable improvement nearly by 10% to 30% at the initial tests.

Jon Stokes, the Co-founder of Ars Technica had mention that Apple A4 runs at 1GHz clock speed which is somewhat similar to the Snapdragon developed by Qualcomm. The new Apple A4 chip is built on Cortex A8 generation, ARM processor core plus 3 layers of silicon circuits stacked one by one over. These layers include 2 DRAM memory modules and a micro processor core. The DRAM memory modules fires up the performance to the Apple iPad.

The DRAMS that are used in iPad are able to read and write the as 64 bit data blocks which makes the iPad Fast.

Overall, the Apple A4 chip that is a mixture of two DRAM memory modules which is able to read and write data in 64 bits and a 1GHz CPU core helps the iPad to perform and run applications smooth and faster.
