iPad 3 runs on Apple A5X instead of A6 CPU

An image of the iPad 3 logic board leaked in China. If legit than the next generation Apple CPU is named A5X and not A6.

The leaks and rumor around the iPad 3 are intensifying. An interesting leak comes from China. In a forum post on Weiphone, via MacRumors. It shows an Apple A5X CPU on a logic board that is supposed to be from the upcoming iPad 3.

Until now it was assumed Apple would deploy an Apple A6 CPU. The leaked photo suggests though that Apple is only releasing a minor upgraded CPU in the new iPad 3. There is also no need for a dramatically improved CPU. The new A5X has just to deal with the handling of higher resolution imagery that is now possibly on the iPad. The killer feature of the iPad 3 is its Retina Display.

The Apple iPad 3:
What we know so far is that Apple is going to announce the iPad 3 on March 7 (still an unofficial date). Features of the iPad 3 include Retina Display, A5X CPU, Higher Resolution Cameras and maybe LTE option. Get the latest iPad 3 Rumors and News.
