Where did I say it removes the CPU limitation entirely? You said that mobile GPUs are bottlenecked by mobile CPUs, so I pointed out that Apple is raising both at the same time so we will see double the performance of the A5 in regard to graphics.

Imo its completely pointless even trying to argue anything properly without even a single benchmark on a relevant OS.
We don't even know the clocks.
They've been pretty accurate in the past.

They said it's a dual-core Cortex A15.

A5X is a dual-core Cortex A9 at 1GHz, with the PowerVR SGX543MP4. The A6 is a dual-core Cortex A15 with what seems to be the PowerVR SGX543MP4 -- but no confirmation on the GPU yet but it seems likely as Apple has said it's twice as powerful as the A5's graphics.
