Whenever Apple announces a new product, immediately the infographic comparisons and/or questions about what Apple said come out. Yesterday, Apple announced the new iPad
3, and we already showed you comparisons against the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, but now NVIDIA is questioning Apple’s claim that their A5X processor is 4 times faster than the NVIDIA Tegra 3 in terms of graphics performance.
Ken Brown, a spokesman for NVIDIA thought it was “certainly flattering” that Apple called them out, but the lack of any data to backup their claim is “sketchy.” He went on to say, “We don’t have the benchmark information. We have to understand what the application was that was used. Was it one or a variety of applications? What drivers were used? There are so many issues to get into with benchmark.”
Since it’s highly unlikely Apple will provide any benchmarks, you can expect NVIDIA to prove or disprove Apple’s claims by purchasing the new iPad and conducting their own tests.
So what do you guys think? Is Apple right or are they playing their usual games?
