No problem . The GPU is really awesome, no game is able to slow it down so far, the new infinity blade is awesome, and I did a test where I literally loaded every app I had, loaded 9 tabs on different pages, and shifted through all of them as fast as I could and there was a slowdown, but barely at all, which is crazy to me because it only has 512mb or ram, I literally had around 40 apps open too.
Haha, that's awesome. I'm betting that iOS 5 will include some optimizations for dual-core devices, I hope it does, anyway. Infinity Blade already has improved graphics on iPad 2, I can't wait until they actually see how far they can take it.

Lol.. Maybe if Minecraft was coded in javascript. I'm sure it could be done.., just not sure how it would perform in comparison to Java.

I'm not entirely sure I believe the Galaxy Tab score though. The Nexus S and Tab share identical hardware. They should have the same score.
Debatable performance between the Snapdragon and Hummingbird.

Well, it doesn't, and it does. You obviously need the proper hardware to handle the OS.

True. I don't think this is a fair comparison. If a dual-core device beats out a single-core device running the same version of the OS, who's really going to say they didn't expect that?

You could always get an eReader running Android and flash a custom ROM. The Nook Color comes to mind and fits perfectly into that price range. If you're willing to spend a bit more, you could even get the Viewsonic G Tablet with Tegra 2. That is one point I would like to make clear, though; that the Viewsonic G Tablet, a rebranded Malata Zpad, was the first in to be available with the Tegra 2. Certainly, it could be used for testing. It's been out for a while. The only problem would be that the stock version of Android isn't the best..

The overhyped Notion Ink Adam would have also been an interesting test unit.

I got a full refund (Store Credit) ,and will be getting him the Ipad2 as soon as they come in to Target. I am not counting on them getting them in on Friday ,but ,no biggie.Just glad to bee getting one!!
...why... would you get that for your 12-year-old son? I swear, kids are spoiled these days.

I know, right. That thing is a beast. I've been debating whether I want to get one so that I can dual-boot WP7 and Android.

An expensive gift that you justify because you get to mess with it, as well?

It's a dual core. I'd hope that is would be faster.

Depends on the scale of 1.6x. 1.6x translate to 60% performance increase in javascript performance which is impressive. But not impressive when I can browse a heck of a lot more information on my laptop and accomplish significantly more in 5 hours then 7 hours on the ipad.

Java is the main problem with tablets. They do not do much more then light applications, web browsing, and some minor 3d/2d games. The only conditions where it runs poor is in web browsing...and heck...that is neglecting flash as well for the ipad. Having 9x better GPU performance, or having dual cores, in not going to strengthen conditions where it already performs well. It is a similar argument to GPUs. Why have 120fps when I have a monitor that can only play back 60 or even 30 FPS. The only thing you'll see on real world performance is applications opening faster and slightly faster web browsing. Both that already run poor and give poor quality.

The only benefit you'll see from the ipad2 in the long run is if apple shifts to more demanding applications. When the majority of their user base will continue to be on the 3GS and the first ipad, don't expect the power behind this device be signifcant until a possible 2 years later.

You jelly? If the child is responsible, give them things they'd enjoy that are responsible in nature.

Well, duh. I would never receive such items as gifts. How is the device "responsible in nature"? I must not have been very responsible, then. >.>

Christ almighty, talk about a spoiled kid.
His kid will be expecting everything in life to be handed to him if he's buying these things when he's only 12!

Because it is like a computer. Computers are for the responsible and thus responsible in nature.

I wouldn't go that far.. I was merely pointing out that that's a bit much to be handing someone so young. I mean, if he's going to code up the next Angry Birds, then, alright. But, if it's just for the cool factor, and messing around, then it's not going to be used to its full potential. I think it's a matter of appreciation. Did you ever see that video of the child getting a 360?


Edit: Just to note that I am not denigrating the member's child. Merely an observation.

It's impressive, yes; a laptop and iPad are totally different. I would prefer an iPad, personally. It's not as good in some areas, but much better in others. Depends what you want it for.

Why have 120 FPS? Because then developers can push it down to 60 or 30 with better graphics.

I doubt that. Infinity Blade has already been updated with higher resolution textures, better lighting, some AA, etc.

Just look here (hover mouse over image to see iPad 2 version): http://www.anandtech.com/show/4215/a...r-sgx-543mp2/3

These are graphics updated just for iPad 2. What will come later will be much, much better. Several other games have already updated to offer better graphics. If Infinity Blade can run on an iPad with an SGX535, they can make it so much better looking on a SGX543MP2, and they've already got a good start so far.
