"While web pages may look sharper on the new iPad’s improved display, the benchmark results show that the browsing performance of the new iPad is the same as the iPad 2, suggesting that the computational processing power in both devices is near identical," Futuremark said.
Futuremark actually noted a slightly higher score than we did with the new iPad (see pic above), but the point remains. We think it's a bummer Apple didn't beef up the CPU to a quad-core part, at least from a power user's perspective. In practice, the browsing experience is quite good, pinch-to-zoom performance is stellar, and webpages won't look any better on other mobile devices thanks the Retina display.
