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!
