Apple announced that the iPad 3 was powered by an A5X processor at their March 7 media event, but little else was known about the tech specs of the third-generation iPad until now.

New benchmarking performed on the iPad 3 has revealed a 1Ghz processor and 1GB of RAM, which delivered a Geekbench score of 756 – basically the same as that of the iPad 2.

However, the Geekbench scoring system does not take into account graphics performance, which is much-improved on the A5X chip in comparison with the A5.
