Algunos compradores del iPad 2 se pueden llevar una sopresa, algunos de los iPad 2 llevan un procesador que consume menos: The iPad 2,4 Review: 32nm Brings Better Battery Life
We'll start with the latest iteration of our WiFi web browsing test. With some additional logic to defeat overly aggressive browser caching, this test cycles through dozens of web pages, pausing on each one to simulate reading time before moving onto the next one. Display brightness is kept constant at 200 nits while the test runs. Results are reported in hours of battery life before the tablet dies.
Most web browsing tests end up being significantly display limited, as in the display dominates most of the power draw. That being the case, the fact that we see a 15.8% increase in battery life from the new 32nm HK+MG SoC alone is very significant. Apple is very conservative internally about revising battery life ratings so it's no surprise that we don't see a change in the specs on the iPad 2, especially considering that so many units out there on the market are still older iPad 2,1 models.
The increase in battery life here is almost certainly due to lower leakage at idle and better active power as well. This is a real improvement.
Things get even better when we stress the real power hog on the SoC: Imagination Technologies' PowerVR SGX 543MP2 GPU. Taking up more area on the die than the dual Cortex A9 cores, the 543MP2 is really stressed during 3D gaming. What better way to measure the impact of the new 32nm SoC on battery life than with one of the most stressful 3D games out for iOS today: Infinity Blade 2.
El aumento de bateria se debe a que llevan procesadores fabricados con la tecnología de 32nm que hace al procesador más eficiente, llegando a durar la batería casi un 16% más
En todo lo demás no hay diferencia
