Apple iPad 2 to run on Dual Core SGX543 GPU to Handle new 2048x1536px Resolution

Apple iPad 2 to run on Dual Core SGX543 GPU to Handle new 2048x1536px Resolution
 
 

The rumors about the new iPad 2 have increased quite a bit over the last week. All rumors are around one rumored feature highlight of the iPad 2. The resolution of the new iPad is going to have 4x the pixels of the current iPad. The 2,048x1,536px resolution will improve dramatically the readability of content on the iPad and photos and videos will look gorgeous. Additionally if Apple maintains the current price point for the new iPad 2 the Tablet competition has potentially their next big problem at their hands. The next generation of Android Tablets has more processing power but none of them has announced large resolution screens. Such a display is a major cost factor and obviously a major differentiators.

The rumored dramatic increase in resolution requires though much more processing and graphics power. We already reported about that the new iPad will pack a new Apple A5 CPU. Apple Insider reports that Apple will use a new graphics video core dubbed SGX543, which has supposed twice the power compared to the currently used SGX535 core. Apple is likely to use two of these in a dual core configuration.

The new SGX543 graphics core also supports OpenCL that can be used to have the GPU help the main CPU for general purpose tasks.

if the recent increase in iPad 2G rumors is an indicator for the new iPad announcement to be around the corner remains to be seen. The new iPad magazine The Daily has been delayed and was supposed to be unveiled this week. The delay is supposed to be in weeks time frame. The Daily would sure look awesome on a high resolution iPad 2. It makes sense for Apple to unveil the magazine with the new iPad to wet our appetite for the iPad 2 as the ideal magazine reader.
