iPad Air 2, set to dominate the market
A newly leaked photo of an “alleged” – posted by apple.com.tw – iPad Air 2 logic board reveals an A8X processor and what appears to be 2GB of RAM. The A8X chip would likely provide a boost in graphics performance over the A8 processor, similar to earlier “X” variants of Apple’s CPU. Also, looking at the markings on the ELPIDA RAM chip, it appears as though the second character is an ‘A’ indicating 2GB. Markings for a 1GB chip have an ‘8’ as the second character.
Question: This week the debut of iPad Air 2; in the end will it be A8 or A8X?
Answer: This newly published this picture tells us is indeed “ A8X”
There is also seen a 2GB ram chip from ELPIDA this confirms October 16 the most important highlight is “ A8X + 2GB ram”
In addition to both the A8X and 2GB chip, the logic board depicts an 16GB flash module. It’s unclear if Apple will choose the same 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB configurations as it used for the iPhone 6; however, we shouldn’t have to wait long to find out. Apple is expected to unveil the new iPad Air 2 on October 16th.
The images also offer a glimpse at the purported iPad Air 2’s outer frame, which looks like it will retain the original iPad Air’s 9.7-inch display size. As pointed out by Apple Insider, the tablet’s cover glass and touch-capacitive display layer are separate, meaning the iPad Air 2 isn’t likely to sport a laminated display.
Rumors of an A8-powered, Touch ID-enabled iPad have been swirling for months. Developer Hamza Sood recently uncovered a string of text in the iOS 8.1 beta code that read “Pay with iPad using Touch ID,” suggesting that you’ll be able to authorize Apple Pay purchases on the new iPad just as you will on an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.
