The latest rumors suggest that the next iPad will have a dual core 1.2 GHz CPU. Can anyone see how dual CPU cores will have much impact on the iPad's performance? Can you think of any CPU-intensive apps which would take advantage of multiple threads? All that comes to my mind is that an app like AirVideo which relies on a remote host to perform live video conversion *might* now be able to do the transcoding locally. But I would imagne that battery consumption would be pretty heavy. Maybe I just don't play enough games to know about the ones which could take advantage of a multi-core CPU in addition to a good GPU.
