New iPad's 1GB RAM, 1GHz CPU Likely Confirmed

Though it was almost certainly going to be the case, a leaked benchmark has confirmed what we expected: the new iPad comes with 1GB of RAM, but the clock speed of its CPU stays at 1GHz.

The results come from a device that a pair of tech journalists in Vietnam managed to lay their hands on — and seem to be legitimate. That means that the new iPad will be more than happy multi-tasking, but it does put to bed any lingering rumours that the new A5X processor would see a bump in clock speed. [ via Engadget]
