    Omg two times the graphic performance of the 3rd gen iPad thus more than 2 times the performance of the iphone 5. I just want to know, what they did to the graphics. 8 core? 6 core higher clock? I guess it's still to early for PowerVR 600 series ...

    The A6 was double the performance of the A5. So for the A6X to double the performance of the A6, they probably just did what they did with the A5X... add two extra cores. The A6 is only a dual core AFAIK.

    As far as I know the A6 is a three core (graphic units not computing) with two custom ARM based computing cores.
    The three graphic cores in the A6 perform nearly equally to the four in the A5X due to higher clock speed.
    To again double the performance this means either 2 times the cores from the A6 or A5 making it 6 higher clock speed or 8 "normal". The die area would be huge!!!
