What are you talking about? The iPad 3 (aka The New iPad, which is funny because they are using this moniker again on the cheapest iPad) was the first with a Retina display. The iPad 2 was only 1024x768.Yeah we already discussed that. The iPad 3 really wasn’t an upgrade to the 2 and it pissed people off to no end that Apple did that. Also, that was several years ago and since then Apple hasn’t done it. I’m not saying its impossible for it to happen but I think its very unlikely.
People say the GPU was underpowered on the 3, but I didn’t have any issues during the time I owned mine. The new chip and lightning port on the iPad 4 a few months later did leave a bad taste for iPad 3 purchasers, but I didn’t feel like it was a monster upgrade at the time. Kept my iPad 3 until the iPad Air came out.
