How does AppleTV stack-up, spec-wise?

    Hi,

    I was just wondering, given the rumours of an imminent Apple-TV app store (long overdue, I might add), how the Apple-TV compares to the current iPhone and iPad, hardware-wise.

    Presumably its graphics capabilities are okay, given that it can handle 1080p. How about its processing, RAM etc?

    Anyone have any technical input?

    Steve.

    It has a single core A5 with 512MB of ram and the same GPU as the iPhone 4S and iPad 3. Preformace wise, it is slightly slower then the 4S because it only had one core.

    Video decoding is not an intense process if you have dedicated hardware to do it.
