Recently, there were rumors that iPad 3 will have quad-core A6 Chip.
When rumors of iPad 3 became passé, rumor mongers started A6 rumors. Apple has not announced official name or release date for iPad 3 or A6 Chip. However, this does not bother rumor mongers.
Recently, Fix iPhones had revealed some more details about iPad 3 that have not been confirmed from a trustworthy source so far. The report noted that the iPad 3 was to have an updated camera, larger battery, and new screen.
Adding to these rumors, The Verge has come out with a new report which said that that the iPad 3?s rumored A6 processor will be dual-core, and not quad-core as the earlier rumors suggested.
We’re also told that the A6 CPU the iPad 3 is likely to sport will include a significantly more powerful GPU — no big surprise there. What is surprising, however, is that our sources say that the A6 will not be a quad-core chip, but will remain dual-core. We’ve previously had heard that the device would have a quad-core CPU as well as an LTE cell radio on-board, but at least part of that story wasn’t accurate.
Some other A6 processor rumors say that A6 Processor will come with iPhone 5 (another product that Apple has not announced yet). There are rumors that iPhone 5 would be launched this summer. The iPad 2 was launched with the A5 processor, which Apple then put into iPhone 4S as well.
