[* black] So now that we've seen the inside, what can we conclude?
[* black] There's not much revolutionary here. In fact, the A4 is quite similar to the Samsung processor Apple uses in the iPhone.
[* black] It's clear from both hardware and [http://www.macrumors.com/2010/04/04/ipad-tech-specs-cortex-a8-256mb-ram-powervr-sgx-535/|software] that this is a single core processor, so it must be the ARM Cortex A8, and NOT the rumored multicore A9.
[* black] It's quite challenging to identify block-level logic inside a processor, so to identify the GPU we're falling back to software: early benchmarks are showing similar 3D performance to the iPhone, so we're guessing that the iPad uses the same PowerVR SGX 535 GPU.
[* black] The iPad has 256 MB RAM, same as the iPhone.
[* black] That's it for the A4. Let's take a look at some of the other chips inside the iPad.
