    Default The New iPad Mini With Retina Display is About 5x Faster Than the Original iPad Mini


    Apple’s highly anticipated iPad Mini with retina display went on sale last night via Apple’s Online Store, and benchmarks are already becoming available for the new device.

    Apple’s iPad Mini with retina display houses a dual-core 64-bit A7 chip, which is the same chip that is found in apple’s iPhone 5s. The A7 chip is also found in Apple’s iPad Air, but the iPad Air version of the chip is clocked at 1.4Ghz, while the iPhone 5s and iPad Mini with retina display version of the chip is clocked at 1.3Ghz.

    Notably, the new A7 chip gives the iPad Mini with retina display a huge boost in speed when compared to the original iPad Mini. As MacRumors reports, the original iPad Mini received a single-core score of 261 and a multi-core score of 493, but as we can see from the benchmarks above, the new iPad Mini with retina display receives a single-core score of 1390 and a multi-core score of 2512, which is around five times faster.

    The benchmarks were made with the popular benchmarking tool known as Geekbench, which is available in the App Store for 99. Geekbench was recently updated to version 3 with an all-new design and support for iOS 7 devices and the 64-bit architecture.

    If you're wanting to purchase an iPad Mini with retina display, you may want to get your order in as soon as possible. Supply for the new device is expected to be very slim this holiday season.

    With such a small screen the display resolution makes no difference to me but the rest of the hardware is faster. So that's nice lol

    I've seen others say this and it makes no sense to me. the smaller the screen, the more densely packed the information, i.e., the smaller the text/pictures. That is precisely when higher resolution is the most useful. I can make out a web page with small text on an iPad 1 -- I can't make out any of that text on a 3GS. both are non-retina, but it's the size of the screen that matters.

    anyway, for me, the retina display makes the mini the perfect mobile device.
