    This iPad A4 chip from what I hear is an A9 cpu. The diagram shows it can be multicore. Anyone know if it is a single or multicore A9 inside this A4.

    Anyone know what kind of GPU is it running?

    The A9 is either a two core or four core chip, the A8 that the Snapdragon and the iPhone CPU is based on is single core.

    Cool that makes sense. Two CPUs one to handle the foreground UI and the other could handle other stuff. Would make for a speedy interface.

    I got this from the ARM site.
