Rumor: iPad 2 might not be dual-core after all

According to DigiTimes, Apple’s not only moving their processor manufacturing from Samsung to TSMC like we reported yesterday, but they also might be forgoing a dual-core chip for the iPad 2. DigiTimes is saying that the iPad 2 will carry an “enhanced” version of the A4 chip, while the iPhone 5 will rely on an A5 processor.

A dual-core processor doesn’t necessarily mean more power. Apple could boost the clock speed of the A4 chip and still provide a substantial performance boost. For the record, this particular rumor stands in direct contrast with rumors from the past. It was widely speculated that the iPad 2 would see a dual-core A5 chipset just a couple of weeks ago.
