True. The iPad 2 has 9 times the graphics of the iPad 1/iP4, while the iPhone 4S has 7 times the graphics of the iPad 1/iP4.


+The iPad has a bigger screen so it's way better for gaming than the iPhone.

The way it actually works out, the iPad is about 25% faster but has about 25% more pixels to draw. In other words the difference in graphics power between the two is pretty much zero for games. Screensize: yes, bigger is better for gaming, smaller is better to carry round. The phone is always in your pocket, the iPad is usually left at home.

But the requirements for a higher resolution does not scale linearly.

Thus, the iPad 2 does not suffer in any significant way to display the content at 1024 x 768 versus 640 x 960.

Not to mention the ImgTec SGX543MP2 in the iPad 2 is clocked higher than the one used in the iPhone 4S.
