    I love my ipad 2 but it loads web pages much slower than my desktop.

    Will the new A5X chip load pages faster? Is the new chip required for the new 2048 X 1536 resolution or is it a genuine speed improvement?

    yes it should load webpages and images smoother due to the new GPU chip

    One can hope mobile Safari has been optimized to take advantage of the extra horsepower. Track record is spotty.

    this also depends heavily on the development of those pages and their code optimizations. Some websites are better then others.

    Im skeptical on this..

    remember the old ipad keynotes? Didnt he show a comparison with things like that? ...an actual demo of the device. I dont think we actually got any demo of the ipad 3....just things like iphoto etc. no real talk of safari performing any better. Lets be honest, mobile safari isnt a patch on a laptop/desktop now is it?

    Nope, perhaps images will render faster but that's all. Loading a website is primarily done by the CPU, and as it appears Apple did nothing to improve the performance (regarding the CPU).

    If there's an improvement, than this improvement should be very minimal.
