    look at the difference on the iPad 3, it's a whole 35 point difference. Then it beats out the GSM version by a landslide. So something is going on.

    I'd hardly call 35 a landslide...

    Well, the gsm iPad 2 is faster than the CDMA version. So...like I said, not a big deal.

    CDMA 823 to GSM 751 which is slower than the iPad 2. I just wanna know why it's like that, it doesn't really matter since I don't even own an iPad. I just want to know if it IS actually faster.

    Run the test 10 times, and you will have 10 different results.

    It all varies man. Every CPU isn't created equally. And, it will vary the clock rate based on perceived usage needs.

    It's not faster based on the wireless chip.

    Agreed. Asking about a 1 point difference is retarded.

    A .06% difference is hardly a landslide. Slight momentary packet loss could cause that kind of a difference.
