iPad Air and Mini A7: Double GPU performance of A6, or A6X?
A7 just bought the iPhone to iPad 4 graphics levels with the A6X (a6X had double the GPU resources of the A6, thus the same-ish performance as the A7 which also claimed double GPU performance of the A6), but they're saying the same A7 doubled it from the iPad 4...? Yet it's not an A7X?
Both claims can't be true. Unless they doubled performance without calling it an X series, or if the new claim takes different metrics, Apple themselves also claimed the A7 was double the A6 during the 5S announcement, so now turning around and saying it's also double the performance of the A6X is a bit underhanded.
If it's the same A7, that's less performance at hand per pixel than the iPhone 5S, seeing as they have a lot more pixels to push in retina iPads. If it is indeed still double the iPhone GPU performance, why drop the X naming? Unless it's just clocked higher without additional transistors thrown at it, but that seems too inefficient to do.
