The new iPad slower when reading magazines

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Than iPad 2, much to our surprise


During our brief encounter with the new iPad we were surprised to see how poorly the new toy handles Newsstand and reading magazines.

The new iPad has some four times more pixels than the iPad 2 and there is a noticeable lag of close to 3 seconds to load a magazine page on the iPad 3.  The same magazine page on iPad 2 or Transformer Prime Android tablet loads within a second.

The CPU is to blame, as the A5X still features the exact same CPU cores used on the iPad 2. The upgraded GPU doesn’t seem to speed up magazine reading that much. It is funny to see long-time Apple supporters not being satisfied with their new toy, this is the first time we have seen this much moaning in five years or so.

It is quite clear that you need more processing power for the new display and either a higher clock or more cores might speed up the task. People who are jumping from the original iPad to the new iPad will think how great life is and how faster it is, but iPad 2 owners won’t be that happy.

Don’t even get us started that in DACH, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the new iPad is still advertised as a 4G device despite the fact that 4G networks in none of these countries are supported.
