Apple market capitalization, as it sits, is just over $514 billion — an astonishing number we’re all still getting used to. Even more amazing, however, is that Apple’s market cap is about to be larger than the entire United States retail sector. With Friday’s iPad launch, we’re guessing that $14 billion in market value won’t be an issue… (more…)
Apple said the other day that the graphics chip in the third generation iPad has four times better performance than the GPU in Nvidia’s Tegra 3-chip. Apple’s latest Tablet has a quad-core GPU compared to the twelvecore graphics portion of the Tegra 3.
Any benchmark information was not supplied by Apple nor Nvidia, which happen to be known for graphics cards, have announced their intention to investigate the matter themselves by buying the new edition of the iPad as soon as they release it.
Its hard to think the A5x can beat Nvidia’s Tegra 3 with 4.8 GFLOPS at 200MHz and 7.2 GFLOPS at 300MHz. The same figures for the PowerVR SGX 543MP2 is 12.8 and 19.2 GFLOPS. In the latest version of the iPad 3 apple says that it is a quad-core variant of SGX 543 with the designation MP4-that is the same GPU as the PlayStation Vita. It can thus be proved SGX 543MP4 – at least on paper – is about four times faster than Tegra 3 in terms of raw computing power.
What do you think? Does the ipad 3 really have a four times faster graphics chip than the one in the Tegra 3 or does Apple exaggerate? The latest iPad goes on sale March 16 in the U.S. and we’ll surely get to hear more from Nvidia on this.

CeBIT (German: for Centrum für Büroautomation, Informationstechnologie und Telekommunikation, lit. “Center for Office Automation, Information Technology and Telecommunication“) is the world’s largest and most international computer expo. CeBIT is held each year on the world’s largest fairground in Hanover, Germany, and is a barometer of the state of the art in information technology. The trade fair is organized by Deutsche Messe AG.
With an exhibition area of roughly 450,000 m² (5 million ft²) and up to 850,000 visitors at the apex of the dot-com boom, it is larger both in area and attendance than its Asian counterpart COMPUTEX and the no-longer held American equivalent COMDEX. While by 2007 the CeBIT expo attendance had shrunk to around 200,000 from those all-time highs, attendance rebounded to 334,000 by 2010. The 2008 expo was marred by the police raids of 51 exhibitors for patent infringement.
The 2012 expo was held from 6 to 10 March, 2012.
