iPad 3 Release Date, According to a photo posted on Chinese forum WeiPhone, it looks like the iPad 3 could possibly use a chip shown only as “A5X” instead of an “A6? quad core chip.
The upcoming iPad 3 is expected to be announced early next month, and is expected to feature an upgraded processor, LTE capabilities, as well as a high-res retina display.
An “A5X” as a step-wise upgrade to the A5 corresponds with progression of processor part numbers as revealed by BGR in February. At the time the A4 was known to be the S5L8930X, the A5 as the S5L8940X and the new iPad processor as S5L8945X.
