iPad 1 & Apple A4 vs. iPad 2 & Apple A5
iPad 1 vs. iPad 2 – Geekbench results. Notice the lower clock speed of the A5.While the Apple A5 is clocked slower than the A4, its two cores allow the processor to offer a significant performance gain over its predecessor. As for real-life test results, performance gains are mostly noticeable with apps like Safari, as well as iPad 2 optimized apps such as Infinity Blade. Best of all, this extra performance comes at no premium, as the iPad 2 costs the same as its predecessor.
