Game developers will take full advantage of the ability of the Apple iPad 2 to crunch more polygons, triangles and pixels to deliver games that are much more refined and detailed compared to the current generation of iPad tablet.
Although Apple has not yet announced the exact specification for its graphics module, one can make an educated guess about it being a dual core, PowerVR SGX543MP+ model, one which can generate up to 140 million triangles with two cores and clocked at 400MHz.
That's roughly nine to ten times the performance of the SGX535 model found on the Apple iPhone 4 and the Apple iPad. Mark Rein, the co-founder and VP of Epic Games, says that the iPad may become a game platform and used the graphical prowess of its core title, Infinity Blade to highlight this.
He also revealed to Seattle Times, that the game will now have more texture details with some effects turned on because of the additional firepower provided by the new GPU.
Rein also hinted during the interview that the users are unlikely to pay extra to get the additional bonus performance and details from the new iPad 2. He added that one of the main obstacle that prevents the iPad from becoming a fully blown gaming console is the lack of wireless dual sticks.
