iPad 3 rumours: 2GHz dual-core processor to feature

Apple's iPad 3 to feature same 2GHz dual-core processor as leaked Samsung phone

With the iPad 2 almost a month old and now long forgotten, attention has turned to the presumably long-off arrival of the Apple iPad 3 with new reports suggesting the next-generation tablet will land with a hefty 2GHz dual-core processor.

The iPad 3 rumours have been kicked into overdrive on the back of Samsung, the company responsible for providing Apple with its mobile CPU chips, claiming it will launch the world’s first 2GHz dual-core smartphone within 12 months.

With a Samsung spokesperson boldly claiming earlier this week “we are planning to release a 2GHz dual-core CPU-equipped smartphone by next year,” the iPad 3 rumour mill has been handed a golden nugget to run with as many now suggest next year’s iPad arrival will boast the same processor as the mooted mobile.

Whilst many now eagerly await a 2GHz dual-core touting iPad, Apple may soon be looking for a new supplier of its A4 and A5 processing chips after the Cupertino firm announced it was to sue Samsung over patent infringements and claimed copycat tactics with similarities between the iPhone and iPad being made to Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab.

What features would you like to see included on the mooted iPad 3, is a 2GHz dual-core processor anywhere near the top of that list? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
