View Full Version : Is MBA powerful enough to run iPad simulator at full speed?

May 5, 2011, 05:40 AM
I've been developing iPad games on an old Mac Mini. After a memory upgrade normal development runs well apart from the fact that the iPad simulator runs extremely slowly on the setup. 5-10fps compared to 50-60fps on the device itself.

Has anybody any experience with running the iPad simulator on an MBA? Is it as fast as the device?

This would be important for me to because I have my iMac for developing and wonder if I could use a air for it 2
