Well, we knew it was going to be good, but we didn’t know it would be that good!
Primate Labs ran Geekbench 3 on the new iPad Air and, quite simply, the results are stunning.
Those lovely, long blue bars at the top of each comparison chart show you exactly how much better the iPad Air is than its predecessors. As Primate Labs say, double the score means double the performance, and looking at the numbers we can see that the iPad Air is about twice as fast as the fourth-generation iPad. It’s also over five times faster than the iPad 2. Now that’s what we can all an upgrade. And as Steve Ashby can tell you, it really did feel amazing in the hand when he was at the Apple event last week.
Very nice work indeed, Apple.
