Without going extreme and wishing for something silly that's not going to happen. 3GHZ Quad Core ! Based on the A4 CPU that's in the current iPad, which Is I believe a modified and clocked up chip by another design team that Apple bought (please correct me if I'm wrong on this point) What sensibly might we expect on the next iPad given they have only had 1 year to bring along a new design/tweak to another chip? I think I'm right in saying the current chip is single core and many new chips are dual core. The speed also 1Ghz seems to be about the max of others out there right now. Apple will need to put something into it (May/June next year lauch) which will keep it at/near the top of the pack for the whole of the following year till June 2012 when the next change, iPad3 will come along. I'm not expecting a GIANT advance on the CPU/GPU for iPad2 to be honest, but with all the Tegra2 tablets coming soon (a main one in the UK in only 4 days time due for launch) I expect Apple will feel it needs to do something. Any thought on what practically they might be able to fit into the next model?
