iPad 2 Resolution and Graphics Core Rumors

Rumor Mill: iPad 2 Coming With Beefy Resolution, Dual Core Graphics

First, let's talk details: we've already heard the rumor that the next iPad could come with a better screen, but we now have some numbers behind the chitchat: 2048 x 1536. That's the rumored resolution to be coming on the iPad 2 — twice that of the current iPad model (1024 x 768). Not only that, but the iPad 2 is also said to be coming with the same ultracrisp Retina display found on the iPhone 4.

What's more, the next iPad could be coming with a beefed-up version of Apple's A4 chip, bringing dual graphics cores into the mix. So, what? What does all this mean for you, you ask? Find out, and get the skinny on some possible leaked pricing structures after the break.

Now let's break it down: double graphics cores (in the new A4 chip) will allow the iPad 2 to support the bigger resolution Retina display screen. This means that the iPad 2 will soon get full 1080p HD playback, and all of your photos, videos, and apps will look even more brilliant than they do now. Additionally, dual graphics cores will allow the iPad 2 to process video more efficiently, so you'll probably notice better looking and more detailed video games coming to the iPad in the near future.

As for price, three mysterious placeholders for an iPad WiFi that is "coming soon" have been listed at $599 and $699. Are these the new prices for the iPad 2 with WiFi?
