Apple iPad reportedly has an underpowered GPU

Posted on Monday, February 22 2010 @ 13:23:04 CET by

Bright Side of News talked to developers and learned the device's GPU is too weak for tasks like running Flash.
We spoke with developers who work on developing iPad applications and as such, actually have access to Apple iPad. Contrary to general belief, iPad didn't end up just in hands of comedians such as Stephen Colbert on Grammy 2010 awards ceremony but also in the hands of developers. While all is candy-dandy, thanks to ARM Cortex A-9 CPU part of the SoC clocked at nice 1GHz, the GPU part is less than stellar.

According to our sources, the graphics subsystem of Apple's A4 not just has issues in fully supporting OpenES 2.0 but is a underpowered GPU for the screen resolution at hand. iPad's resolution is too high and as a consequence, A4's GPU cannot accelerate Adobe Flash.
