Quad core iPad 3 on its way?

Jun 4, 2011 by

Barrons has reported that the next-generation iPad will carry a quad core processor, and may be the exclusive carrier of that processor.

Experts have said that it would be fair to assume the next iPad chip will be a quad core A6 and that Apple may be doing this to stay competitive with other tablets (yes, there are non-iPad tablets).

The downside to this is that the new A6 chip would be too hot to run inside an iPhone and that using it inside an iPhone would require a modified version of the chip.

As if the iPad 2 wasn’t fast enough.
