I'm well aware of that fact, which is why I pointed it out. I think you meant to reply to steelbom.
You're reading the wrong section. Scroll down to "catch up", none of the definitions are "overtake". But honestly, it doesn't matter, let's just leave it at that.

Close but not quite, my point was I don't think the term "catch up" or even "catch" is applicable when comparing the iPad and Prime. It implies (at least to me) a significant difference between the two, but 1024x768>1280x800 is a very minor change, and it also implies

Close but not quite, my point was I don't think the term "catch up" or even "catch" is applicable when comparing the iPad and Prime's resolution, 1024x768 > 1280x800 isn't a significant change, so as far as I'm concerned there's nothing to catch up with. You could use it regarding the processor, as a quad-core is significantly better than a dual-core. And, going to 2048x1536 is greatly overtaking.

You test GPU workloads at higher resolutions to remove CPU bottlenecks, not a lower ones. That test you showed is akin to comparing a 5970 to a 7970 in DirectX9 titles... The 5970 will beat the 7970 in DX9 titles yet get utterly embarrassed in DX11 titles.

EDIT: Haha oops, I meant to write something.

Real time physics and dynamic lighting require a lot of processing power, according to the GlowBall tech demo at least. Those tests I showed showcase the graphics performance, and not the CPU performance. I'd assume if you ran GlowBall on an iPad 2 that it'd lag just as the Prime did in the tech demo when using only two cores, but graphics wise it could handle more in terms of shaders and a lot more in terms of textures.

In sad, sad news, a photo of the iPad 3's logic board shows a chip titled "A5X" not "A6" so we may not be seeing a quad-core after all, which is quite sad. Then again, if it's got a high enough clock speed it may be better than that -- for things like web browsing and such.

I have the Galaxy Nexus right now but I'm really considering going to AT&T and getting the Galaxy Note. I just can't resist the 5.3" screen.

It's an awkward device! It's too small to be a tablet, but yet it's too big to be a phone. Stick with the Nexus!

You might as well be holding up one of these to your ear.

I'm interested on what this A5X is going to be. I do have to say, it has an interesting heat sink on it, something the A4 and A5 don't have on them. All I know is that whatever the iPad 3 is going to have in it, hardware-wise, the iPhone 6 will have it too. I'm ready to upgrade this iPhone 4! I just want a nice redesigned model that I just have to have an unobtrusive case on it, like the Bumpers. I just laugh whenever I see someone that has an Otterbox on their iPhone, even though they don't need it, cause I know AT&T pushes you to get one of them. The only people that need one of those cases are people that know that they are going to have the risk of damaging their phone, like on a construction site or something like that.

Also, whoever keeps calling the iPhone 6, "5," stop it! The 4S is the 5th iPhone! They just add the "S" to the end of the device names if it's just a hardware upgrade.

Possibly, I still think it might be 5 though. I realize it went from iPhone - iPhone 3G - iPhone 3GS - iPhone 4 - iPhone 4S but everyone is calling it the iPhone 5 so why not?

The sixth generation iPhone will be called iPhone 5, not iPhone 6.

They've never done it before. The second generation iPhone wasn't called iPhone 2, it was called iPhone 3G, the third was called the 3GS, and the fourth was called 4, the fifth 4S... there's nothing to suggest that they'll call the sixth iPhone, iPhone 6, and leave a gap.

And to comment on what you said earlier..the 3GS was the 4th phone, but they didn't call it the 4.
Was it? iPhone > iPhone 3G > iPhone 3GS > iPhone 4? Or am I missing one?

Skipping a number would confuse some people so much that they would no longer be able to function.

>>because personal opinion is incorrect.

I like my SGSII, the only thing I'd take over it would be the note because the extra size would be useful

No, then the iPhone4S would have been the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 3G would been the iPhone2...It'll be the iPhone 5, then the 5S probably. Maybe a 4GS before the 5 though. If they change the way the body looks (eg. Like they did for the 4) then it'll be 5, I bet.
