Latest iPad 3 Rumor Tips ‘A5X’ Chipset

The rumors about iPad are in full vigor, and the latest news is on a chipset known as the A5X.

As reported by MacRumors, the forum for Chinese website WeiPhone includes a post with a image of the next-gen iPad’s logic board. The system-on-a-chip is labeled “A5X” and seems to have been produced in November 2011.

Apple watchers were under the thought that the chip in the company’s next iPad would be named the A6, because the first iPad had the name A4 and iPad 2 had the A5.

Earlier this year, 9to5Mac reported that the iPad 3 would  consist of a quad-core ship since Apple’s iOS 5.1 beta code included references to core management capabilities for quad-core processors.

It will be confusing when we think whose points are right. In such cases, it is best to take leaked photos and other Apple rumors not by word for word until Cupertino actually launches its products.  Apple is rumored to be holding its press event for the next iPad during the first week in March in San Francisco, so stay tuned.

We’ve certainly not been at a loss for iPad rumors lately – from retina displays and better cameras to a smaller, 8-inch model and 4G LTE capabilities. What do you hope to see? Let us know in the comments. Until then, see what PCMag’s Editor-in-Chief Dan Costa does not want in the iPad 3.
