Testing Backs Up iPad 2's Purported Graphical Prowess

Anandtech has run a few synthetic benchmarks on the iPad 2, comparing it with the original iPad and the Motorola Xoom. I’m actually pretty shocked by how far ahead it is. I considered Apple’s “9x faster” boasts to be more or less exaggerations of still-significant gains, but this thing is taking the Tegra 2 to school.

Remember, though: the Tegra 2 is pushing ~25% more pixels, and Android 3.0 is still a new OS with much optimization in its future. That said, damn. There are more benchmarks here.
