The new iPad mini 4 features 2GB of RAM and speed-boosted 1.5GHz A8 processor

Written by
Last week, Apple announced the iPad Pro, and, without much fanfare, the iPad mini 4, too. One thing they did seem to touch on, though, was that the new iPad mini is essentially a scaled back iPad Air 2.

One major difference to that is the fact that the iPad mini 4 is using the A8 processor, and not the A8X chip found within the larger tablet. Now, based on a report published by Ars Technica, the specifications of the iPad mini 4 have been put to the test, with a few key details being discovered along the way. That includes the 1.5GHz the iPad mini 4 is running at, which is faster than the 1.4GHz the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are clocked at with the same processor.

The iPad mini 4 also comes loaded with 2GB of RAM.

One thing that the report did indicate that, even with the uptick in speed, the iPad Air 2 is still faster than the iPad mini 4. But, that doesn’t take away from the improvements to the newer tablet:

“Having a whole extra CPU core makes the 1.5GHz A8X in the iPad Air 2 about 50% faster than the Mini 4, but we’re still looking at a 20-or-so percent improvement over the old Mini 2 and Mini 3. That extra RAM will be good for more than just Split View multitasking, too—2GB iDevices need to eject things from memory less often, cutting down on the amount of tab reloading that Safari does and generally reducing wait times when switching between different tabs and apps.”

So, it sounds like, when directly compared to the iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 4 won’t have the same performance to look forward to. Of course, real world situations and the differences in user’s tasks will make a difference.

Do you plan on buying the iPad mini 4?
