Primate Labs recently released a new Geekbench report via Twitter showing the performance of the A8X processor chip housed inside the iPad Air 2. According to the results, Apple’s latest tablet is the fastest iOS device around. Plus, the iPad Air 2 is faster than any other tablet on the market by a significant amount, including the Android-based Nvidia Shield Tab, which previously held the crown.
What is probably the most interesting revelation with Primate Lab’s report is that it shows the iPad Air 2 actually houses three cores, and the best news of all, 2GB of RAM. These additional tech specs on top of the faster A8X processor chip push the iPad Air 2 into desktop computer performance arena.
