    :apple: I am going to buy an iPad this week. I have one question;
    Does the quad core graphic capability significantly improve gaming/performance/photo & video editing?

    I am wondering how much of the graphics' power goes to the retina display, and weather there is any noticeable change in performance. :apple:

    Gaming wise I think we'll have to wait for a few developers to truly utilise it's power and display.

    That depends entirely on how well the App is written. Throwing more cores at a badly written App won't do anything for it. Photo and Video editing usually use the CPU for rendering.

    Sure does. I played sims free play on iPad 1. It was stuttering thru, laggy. On iPad 3 not even a hiccup. Very smooth.
