Well this does upset me a bit, but oh well. Don't really game on my iPad 3rd gen, but it does leave me kinda sad knowing that the update happened so quickly.


Ill just hold out till there is an iPad with a quad core CPU and not just GPU. (Although I highly doubt ill be doing much on an iPad that ill need all that power for)

Not from this third-generation iPad owner. I'm excited for the future.

I prognosticate there will me more predictions of complaints from non-third-generaton iPad owners.

Does gaming suck on your iPad 3 or what?

It's the same amount as the iPad three or are you under some illusion that 2gb of ram will offer some benefit?

I think it's the latter. Spec bumps are nice, but with the OS staying the same, it goes unnoticed in real time use (or very minimal)

Upgraded with the Lightning Connector that doesn't make the new iPad thinner or lighter nor does it increase charge times or transfer rate.

Thank you, Apple.

I still can't quite fathom what this speed increase will mean for everyday usage. My wife's iPad 1 still seems lightning fast to me - but maybe that's because my phone is still a 3GS. Will be very interesting to see how her iPad 4 compares in real world use when it arrives on Friday.

Well I guess I'm back to being angry again. I wanted A6 in the first place, but A5X is what we got and I was glad to have a faster ipad than the iPad 1. I decided I wasn't going to worry about selling the 3 to get a 4, and I still won't because I don't want to take a bath in what I'd get for a 3, but this ticks me off. Shrug. Bleep Apple, glad I won't be buying any new HW from them for a while. Well, other than another lightning cable or two, if they can ever find a way to make enough to start selling separates. I'd be more than happy to buy a 3rd party black cable, as long as it just charges properly.

Patience has been rewarded ... my wife's got me the first iPad, then 2 came and it wasn't that big upgrade in my opinion so I didn't catch ... than 3 and retina came and I was this far from buying, but I fortunately resisted ! Got the 4th on day 2 from release, and am really happy about the benchmarks ... but I also think that at that rate of upgrading, Apple will see me changing it when they come out with 10 (which by the way could be in about 3 years from now !)

I can see the stats there, but my iPad 2 runs perfectly smooth on everything I use it for, even games.

So much wasted spec, so little optimization.

It is definitely your 3GS experience that makes you think iPad 1 is fast : believe me, it is not ! And when you guys get iPad 4 it's gonna be like night to day !

Nice upgrade, but I am content with my iPad3.

I'll wait till it gets an iPad Mini type makeover
