NVIDIA questions Apple A5X performance claims

Posted on Thursday, March 08 2012 @ 10:41:05 CET by


Last week NVIDIA questioned Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro performance claims, and now NVIDIA challenges Apple to show benchmarks on the new iPad. Apple claimed during yesterday's iPad launch event that the graphics performance of the A5 processor used in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 is twice as fast as Tegra 3, and that the new A5X has four times the performance of NVIDIA's chip.

NVIDIA finds this hard to believe, and asks Apple to release more data on how it got these results.
Those statements are pretty bold and NVIDIA apparently wants Apple to back up those claims. ZDNet.com reports that an NVIDIA spokesperson said:

We don’t have the benchmark information. We have to understand what the application was that was used. Was it one or a variety of applications? What drivers were used? There are so many issues to get into with benchmark.

It's doubtful that Apple will ever reveal how it tested the graphical performance of the new iPad against an Tegra 3 device. However, NVIDIA says it was "certainly flattering" to be mentioned during today's press event.

You should be demanding apple substantiate their assertion since consumers ought to know how they came up with them.

What kind of nonsense is your assertion your doubt Apple will ever reveal how...and what kind of idiots are NVIDIA being flattered by unsupported claims they are crap.

Truly pathetic morons all of you. You should demand Apple explain their statements jerks.
