iPad 3 Benchmark
They also benchmarked the iPad 3. The new iPad 3,3 with A5X processor and iOS 5.1 got a Geekbench [App Store] score of 756. The benchmark also shows A5X processor containing 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Apple said the GPU is quad core.
The benchmark does not test for graphics performance of the Apple A5X processor, which Apple noted at iPad 3 keynote that the iPad 3 performs up to 4 times that of NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor.
