There is a widespread rumor about Apple to introduce a quad-core processor in the iPad 3 to make sure that it remains the king in the tablet industry. This speculation has come from the factories where the current iPad 2 processor is being manufactured. So the next processor, i.e, Apple A6 CPU may sport a more complex design and will be used in the iPad that will be introduced next year.
This will give Nvidia a strong competitor in the ARM processor market where the latter will soon be unveiling its first quad core processor. Without a doubt, having four cores in a tablet will definitely expand the capabilities of what the Apple tablet is currently capable of. It is also funny that having a four core ARM processor was not even imagined just few years ago.
