While the new iPad 3 in online stores or even fly to some countries where the sale has already started patiently in line to get the output of an Apple Store, iFixit colleagues have fun dismembering their exemplary show what’s inside.
And surprise: not only the retina display, processor and battery A5X Apple but there is more! Here is an approximate list of components identified by iFixit:
- Texas Instruments CD3240 device driver
- Broadcom BCM4330 802.11a/b/g/n MAC / baseband / radio with Bluetooth 4.0 + HS and FM receiver integrated

The processor is now clear, is a quad-core as erroneously assumed at first, but a dual-core, however, according to statements from Apple, should have nothing to envy to the quad-core (plus one) of Nvidia.
Compared to the iPad 2 components have been used much more demanding in terms of energy consumption, which then necessitated a more capacious battery : it goes from 2 to 42.5 Wh 25Wh dell’iPad the new iPad.
The assembly, as one would expect from Apple is extremely accurate, the sign of a product manufactured to the highest quality standards. And now what are you waiting, rimettetevi patiently in line if you want one!
