iPhone 5 & iPad 3 to sport 20X more powerful GPU?

The next-generation iPad and iPhone could be equipped with 20 times the pixel-pushing brawn as their current iterations, reports suggest.

According to a report from Apple Insider, both gadgets are in the frame to be fitted with the PowerVR G6200 and G6400 GPU cores from Imagination Technologies.

These dwarf the GPU used in the A5 processor that powers the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 and could transform the sense of ‘snap’ that the gadgets offer.

Perhaps more importantly after the iPhone 4S’s battery problems, the GPU’s have also got the potential to massively cut power consumption.

Apple Insider states: “The PowerVR G6200 and G6400 GPU IP cores are the first in the Power VR Series6 GPU family from Imagination Technologies.

"The chipmaker said its latest mobile processors are a new benchmark for high performance with low power consumption.”

Other features mooted for the iPhone 5 include a new design, 4S network support and 128GB of internal storage.

The iPad 3 is expected to feature a super high density retina display and an upgraded camera.
