New Delhi: Benchmark results for iPad Air 2 are out and show that the recently announced tablet offers much more powerful hardware compared to the new iPhone models.
While announcing the iPad Air 2 last week Apple stated that it would be running a new A8X processor. So, it was assumed that the iPad Air 2 would be more powerful than last year's iPad Air, but we didn't know by how much.
A series of benchmark tests published by iPhoneBenchmark apparently show that the iPad Air 2 (which in the tests is referred to as "iPad5,4") achieved an impressive 69,059. In contrast the iPhone 6 scored 44,299 and the iPad Air scored 37,868.
This means the iPad Air 2 is the most powerful mobile device Apple has created. Even more interestingly the benchmarks claim that the iPad Air 2 includes a triple-core processor, rather than dual-core.
Another test by iPhoneBenchmark confirms that the iPad Air 2 includes 2GB of RAM.
Benchmark results posted by Geekbench also confirm that the A8X processor has three cores with clock speeds of 1.50GHz, as well as 2GB of RAM.
