Apple iPad 2 & iPhone 5 to Come with Dual Core Graphics

January 17, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Apple’s next generation iPad and the iPhone 5 are expected to be announced later this year, and it is crucial for the company that the new devices come equipped with the latest features available. Now, it appears that the company has no plans to give up its top position in the market.

A little while ago, we had reported that the iPad 2 will come equipped with a camera and that the company may remove the Home Button from both the iPad and the iPhone. Now, a new rumor is suggesting that the iPad 2 and the iPhone 5 may arrive with dual core graphics.

The company will be changing from the SGX535 chip (used since the iPhone 3GS was introduced to the SGX543.), and the new chip will be giving both the devices a big boost in graphics and video processing power.

The company is expected to move to a new SGX543 graphics and video core.

In addition to the new graphics chip, Apple will be launching its new products with a new processor, and it seems that it could be based on a multiple core ARM Cortex A9 processor.

And it also appears that the iPad 2 will come with a higher resolution display than its current version. The proof of this new info has been found in the latest version of Apple’s iBooks app and it suggests a resolution of 2048 x 1536.

So, dual core graphics, multiple core processor, camera, and higher resolution screen. Seems like a mighty good combination to enter the already crowded tablet market. It’s going to be interesting to see who will come on top this time around.

What are your thoughts on the matter? If these rumors turn out to be true, will you be buying the iPad 2? Or are you interested in one of the other tablets that were unveiled at CES 2011?
