Andrew Cunningham, from Ars Technica, managed to get his hands on a iPad mini 4 and ran some tests with the Geekbench 3 app.
Sorry, app not found.
We have already commented on some things about it (for example, that the tablet has the A8 chip and not the A8X found in the iPad Air 2). We also know that the new iPad mini is compatible with the feature Split View iOS 9, which makes us believe that it also has 2GB of RAM as its big brother. But does he really have it? It’s the clock (processing speed) of the chip, what will it be?
The iPad mini 4 has a 1.5GHz A8 processor. In comparison, iPhones 6/6 Plus have a 1.4GHz chip while iPad mini 2 and 3 use a 1.3GHz A7. It was also confirmed that the new iPad mini even has 2GB of RAM (really something essential for the new multitasking and the Split View function well).
The A8X of the iPad Air 2 has a more core than the A8 of the iPad mini 4, which makes it about 50% faster. But comparing the iPad mini 4 to its predecessors, it manages to be about 20% faster.
Earnings more than expected, but it is still good to confirm everything. ?
