The power of iPad performance.

The iPad, with its multicore processor and the integrated flash memory has immediately became the standard for both the quality and speed. Interestingly, it has even out thrown the certain laptop models performance, which no one could actually expect from a device that thin and even without an active cooling system.

The success of the iPad performance could be explained by the fact the developers did not include a typical keyboard like on all the standard laptop models, and replaced it with thinnest touch screen, making the whole device thinner than an inch. The other thing that manufacturer has taken about it is the chip itself – Apple has been long since designing their own chips, and thank god they have had enough success, unlike the other producers. Before the Apple has been even producing their own desktop PCs, but since everyone believed they sucked, the Apple had switched to an untaken mobile niche and has quickly conquered it with all sorts of I-products, such as iPad, iPhone, etc.

Measuring the actual performance of the device wasn’t easy. See, the apple uses its own hardware and the operating system, so any comparisons with the other builds of mobile devices could only be relative, and by no means definitive. Although it has used completely different approach, the iPad has turned out to perform very well in terms of intensive CPU computing, such as archiving and floating-point calculations. It must be noted also that floating point instructions are also the most power consuming, and Apple has provided it with a good energy efficiency circuits and a capable battery.

In terms of graphics, the iPad did perfect with 2D, though a bit sucky in the 3D environment. Though this would not be the news, since it doesn’t not have any external graphic chip, like the modern laptops do.

As we were testing on of the iPads, we’ve also experienced a sad moment, because one of the devices has died and refused to boot, due to the intense processor benchmarking. Luckily enough, we had a phone number of iPad repair Long Island, who have managed to bring it back to life. This a really common scenario, when you should use the repair shop instead of sending it back to the manufacturer, since that stressful benchmarking is not designed a normal operation and would not be covered by the warranty.
