On paper, the data sheet tells us that is the most powerful mobile device released by Apple iOS to date. Input, the usual amount of RAM 1 GB has been doubled in the iPad Air 2. The X8X processor, meanwhile, runs at a speed of 1.5 GHz and has three physical cores inside, resulting 40 percent faster than its predecessor A7. In terms of graphics, the new quad-core GPU also provides an estimated 2.5 times the speed of its predecessors improvement.

Benchmark tests

We have used certain standards for applications and Android platform IOS to obtain figures that can be compared with other devices. In Geekbench , for example, testing a single core represented the value of 1,812, which amounts to up to 14 percent more performance on iPad Original Air. When we run tests related to multi-core, differences becoming increasing 52 percent faster with a value of 4,519 points. What many users expect is to improve performance in application environments where usually the hardware of a tablet has always been behind any laptop or desktop computer. In this sense, Apple has taken a giant step for professionals who generate content with their devices. The new iPad Air 2 can get to render a video stream quality Full HD in just 14 seconds. So we showed tests with iMovie , becoming six seconds faster than the time currently required by the iPad Air Original. As the video is longer, the differences in these times are accentuated further. With regard to the section of games, something also very important for the world of developers, we use the application

With regard to the section of games, something also very important for the world of developers, we use the application GFXBench to see as the ratio of “frames per second” reached by the iPad Air 2 is 53 fps, much faster than 24 fps achieved with the iPad Air , or only 17 fps of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 – inch Samsung . Other essential tools to measure the potential in graphics is 3DMark , which test Ultimate the Air 2 gave a value of 121 fps. It corresponds to the most demanding set of tests the program and is where the previous version of iPad Air remained at 75 fps. Overall, the iPad Air 2 is 40 percent faster than the original Air.In the image below, we can see results with the Geekbench test. Blue those related to “multi-core” while appearing in green represented corresponding to a single core.

Who more and who is less knowledgeable about the enormous benefits offered bythe iPad to ensuring high autonomy, to the point of reaching exceed seven days a week without having seen us on the need to resort to its charger. It’s a great differentiator versus other solutions tablet market, Apple has managed to maintain this virtue in the new generation, despite using components with higher performance usually results in higher energy consumption.

Thus, times continuously playing video with the brightness of your screen to the maximum reached 12 hours and 38 minutes, with a slight difference of 11 minutes less time than that achieved with the iPad Air . It is a great achievement because we must remember that Apple has also reduced the physical thickness of your product to 6.1 mm, 7.4 mm compared to the iPad Air above.
