The New iPad Has A5X Processor, New Cameras, 1080P HD Video [iPad 3 Event]

Apple VP for Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller just announced the new iPad, and it features a gorgeous Retina display. Interestingly, the company didn’t go with the an A6 processor, but a dual-core A5X, as some rumors suggested. The device also sports updated cameras, with a 5-megapixel sensor on the back and 5-element lens.

The A5X is 4x faster than its predecessor with quad-core graphics. The CPU is only dual-core. No word on when we’ll see the A6. Our money is on iPhone 5.

Rear camera sports 5-megapixel sensor with tons of luxuries, including auto-focus and the like. The front camera is called “iSight” now, like the Mac. The rear lens will also shoot 1080p HD video. Image stabilization and all that jazz included. Will undoubtedly look good on the Retina display.
