The New iPad Comes With 1GB of RAM

Two days ago, the whole tech world held its breath while Apple unveiled the next king of the tablet market.

Aside from the top features, the audience hoped to see how many of the recent rumours had been confirmed. One of them related to the 1GB of RAM, which is still a mystery.

We found out many impressive technical specifications, most of them highly anticipated such as Retina Display with the 2,048 x 1,536 resolution or the A5X processor, with quad-core graphics to power the "revolutionary" tablet.

However, following its tradition, as many analysts have noticed, Apple representatives that took the stage at the iPad release event and didn't detailed the specifications too much.

Getting into the "spec race" was never a main topic for Apples' keynotes and the other night was no exception.

Moreover, iPhone and iPads still managed to seduce the customer, despite featuring less memory or a weaker chip, than its rivals.

Previously, many tech analysts suggested that Apple will double the RAM for the third generation iPad, compared to its predecessor that features 512 MB.

Now, it's down to some lucky few who have got their hands on the precious device ahead of the crowd of Apple fans, to find out the truth and tell us.

Apparently, The Verge teams are entitled to make this disclosure: the third generation iPad has in fact 1 GB of RAM.
