    Based not only on leaked A8X processor board which also has same heat sink cover as the A5X and A6X...all 3 SoC has their ram not built onto the chip but seperated due to the non package on package design.

    Based on the elpida memory code deciphered it will most likely contain at least 2GB ram. I just placed my very 2nd order since my iPad 4 so I have real good evidence enough to warrant a purchase of the iPad air 2 gold.

    All I want is near desktop performance of safari Web browsing and if the iPad air clocks in sunspider results of near 389ms and my Mac mini is around 250ms with the keynote slide showing the A8X is 40% faster than the A7 that would put the iPad air 2 sunspider results near 230ms or so. That's faster than my Mac mini and if true, this is going to be the first iPad I can use that truly replaces my desktop and laptop for web browsing and with so many apps and the speed of this new A8X I'm quite satisfied. I have access to an iPad air and that is fast but just not good enough to be considered desktop replacing but if this new iPad air2 cpu performance is indeed at least 40% faster than the iPad air, I'm gonna be ecstatic!

    Almost certain... nice. That's the same as it being almost confirmed, most likely has, and I'm pretty sure it does....

    Stop getting everyone so excited because they'll be more frustrated when they find out that the new iPad air 2 has only 1GB of RAM.
    iPad air 2 DOES have 1GB of RAM.

    Weren't there also leaks at one point of the iPhone 6 having 2GB RAM too?

    I still have a feeling that the Air 2 will have 2GB RAM because it is an "X" series chip.

    IPhone 6 was rumored to have 1GB based on the chip code readout. The X does not have ram built on the chip like the regular A processors. Not only that it has 1billion more transistors which does mean it has to have more than a simple quad GPU must be some built in goodies not mentioned yet. Gonna be a monster iPad that will hang with nvidias K1 or possibly besting it.

    Well you sound pretty certain, got any evidence to rival the multiple recent component leaks?

    2gb isn't going to magically fix Safari. There is still a software bug somewhere in it.

    We will never know of they don't release a iPad/iPhone with 2GB of RAM!

    Nope. It's so deliberate, it's unreal.

    I'm sure it probably still has 1gb of ram. I think the safari thing is a software issue. Since 8.0 Safari has been horibal on my rMini. It randomly won't load pages, stops responding and crashes. So I hope 8.1 will fix most issues in safari.

    You realise you're EXACTLY as knowledgeable on the subject as the OP? As in, not at all.

    Here, have a self awareness cookie ◊, you look hungry.

    I am in the same boat. 8.0 has caused Safari to crash a lot on my rMini and I await 8.1 to hopefully sort that out.

    I am almost certain nobody knows how much ram the new iPad Air has yet. Except Cook and company.

    Well they ARE technically correct. We do know it will have 1GB - he didn't exactly say only. Everyone's sarcasm meter here seems to be broken

    Please make sure you come back. I look forward to it. Let's see who's wrong on this.

    If you are going to call someone ignorant, you should say you're rather than your.

    Freida used the correct one, what are you talking about?

    For those who keep insisting it's a software issue, why hasn't Apple fixed it yet? It's existed for over a year since the first 64-bit iPad Air came out.

    Well, I 'm going to be laughing at all y'all when it turn out the new iPad has 4GB of RAM...

    That's going to be in the iPad XX (20)

    So, let's see how that would read using "your" (I'm assuming: Bill Mahr) "New Rules" of English:

    Here we go: "I'm coming back here on Wednesday to prove "you're" ignorant bum wrong". Literally meaning: "I'm coming back here on Wednesday to prove you are ignorant bum wrong".

    Hum.....I'm going with the original version as posted by "Freida" (i.e. "your").
