Will Ipad3 have graphics similar to xbox360?

I have the iphone4 and ipad1 and am shmup crazy as some of you know. When will graphics similar to Raiden4, Ikaruga, Strania, Radiant Silvergun be possible on ios devices be possible?

Some games from Cave are on both console and iphone but not yet (if ever) on ipad. The xbox360 versions are superior of course.

I doubt if that will be possible in the iPad 3 as I don't think they are changing the processor rumour has it they are concentrating on the screen and camera . But maybe in the iPad 4 or 5 who knows .

There have been many rumours and one of them involves a possible A6 processor which will be quad core. There has been no mention of the speed itself. (Although some rumours suggest A5 processor, same as Ipad 2).


Also the retina display has been mentioned as a possibility.

The resolution has been mentioned at 2400 x 1600.

These are only rumours but seem to be mentioned all over the net. According to T3 magazine, quarter 4 release for 2011 is possible.

I do hope that it has a sensor that prevents folks from starting useless threads in the wrong section. .

I see what you did there!

If you're reading this, I've already won.

Max resolution on the xbox360 is 1080p, which if I'm not mistaken is 1920x1080 or something like that. So if the new iPad's have the rumored retina display with the resolution that Magnum0ik correctly calculated, then yes the iPad3 would be capable of higher resolution graphics.

However, the GPU power and memory required to produce the dynamic lighting, texturing, and high-end 3d that you are used to on the xbox360 will likely not exist in the iPad3. So the overall resolution might appear higher, but comparing games side-by-side will likely have the xbox "looking" better.

Not many 360/PS3 games output at 1080p anyway, despite the consoles supporting it. Most are 720 or even lower, so it's not going to take much to match the resolution, there are other more important factors that need addressing first.

No way to tell for sure. We'll have to wait until we have more information about it.

That what the mods are for!

Remember, I'm only talking about 2d and 2.5d shmups, not 3d fps etc.

I also heard about the quad core rumour.
