iPad Air 2 Is Much Faster Than iPhone 6 and Original iPad

There is nothing new when I say that Apple's newly released iPad Air 2 is much faster than the old original iPad that was released from a few years ago..The iPad Air 2 is faster, but it’s the way that it’s faster that is truly noteworthy.

The A8X processor that’s nestled deep within the confines of the iPad Air 2’s new slim and trim body is, for the first time in the history of iOS devices, a 1.5Ghz triple-core processor. The iPad Air 2 also features a healthy 2GB of RAM. Coincidentally, the 2GB of RAM is also a first for any iOS device.

iPad Air 2 is a beast on paper, but it’s no mere paper tiger. This thing screams, and the first benchmarks posted on MacRumors comparing it to previous iOS devices are proving that point.
In multi-core benchmarks, the iPad Air 2 makes mincemeat out of its closest competition—the just released iPhone 6. It scored a whopping 4477 on the Geekbench 3 multi-core score, or more than 1.6 times the iPhone 6.

Even more interesting is to see why Apple felt the need for so much power? I mean, I understand the inclusion of 2GB of RAM, but a 1.5Ghz triple-core CPU? Are they just future-proofing their hardware, or will we begin to see integrated software (i.e. true side-by-side multitasking) take advantage of the extra power much sooner than later?

So what do you think ?
