Unless I missed it but is there confirmation of the RAM in each?
Wondering the same.
Hope: 2gb, Reality (guess): 1gb
It's likely the same thing in the iPhone 5S so my guess is 1gb. Apple has never been generous with RAM.
But are they same between both the Air and mini? I'm hoping so for the mini's sake I mean.
Of course they'll be the same. Same Proc, same retina screen resolution, same memory.
We don't know if they're the same yet. At all. We know it's an A7 chip, in the same way that most computers come with Intel i5 chips. But there's a lot of clock speed differences between those i5 chips. Time will tell.
The A7 is more than a CPU though, it is a SoC, a complete system on a chip, the CPU, GPU & RAM are all built into it. There is no way one A7s RAM is going to be a different amount from anothers without some additional moniker added to it.
Who said RAM? I expect it to be the same amount of RAM. Clock speed is still up in the air.
you are right, i read that wrong, my bad.
Usually a SOC would integrate CPU, GPU and some generic peripherals in the die, but leave the RAM out for PoP mounting, the flash on another place on the PCB, same as other technologies such as radios, DACs and Power mgmt.
No worries. I hope the reviews are out soon and clears it all up.
1gb in both
^^^This but why? If your using the same A7 chip why complicate with different ram amounts and speed? If there was a clear advantage wouldn't Apple had made that clear?
Probably, but they might have been too busy telling us how magical everything is.
Correct me if I'm wrong but only the ipad 3 and 4 had special 'x' variant processor. Maybe the A7 processor with the next gen GPU's has the horse power necessary to power the iPad Retina screen. iPad's will always be a device of compromise between power, size, and battery life. If you don't like it than buy a desktop computer. Of course apple did this to themselves touting the quad core graphics on the iPad 3 and 4's.
