IPad 4 performance problems
« on: December 17, 2012, 01:23:23 am »
Hey all,
This ipad 4 has been doing this since i got it. I installed one app, super hexagon. Every 10 minutes or so, and i can feel it coming because it chokes a little, I will go through about 20 seconds of choppy, extra sensitive play, followed by smooth normal play after that. It happens in the middle of games, so you can imagine my frusteration when i hit 58 seconds and die because of the lag.

Of course its sort of an added difficulty and i have somewhat learned to work around it and just adjust my sensitivity, but with a dual A6 processor and 1 gig of ram I dont see how this could be. Perhaps a memory leak?

It is not jailbroken (as no jailbreak exists yet) and im on 6.0 ipad 4 wifi only.

I don't know if it's the same with you, but my game flips out too.

It just goes into massive FPS drop mode and usually gets me dead because the FPS is so low.

"ipad"

OH NEVERMIND I USE IPHONE

ipad 4

So you either mean an iPad mini/iPad 3, or I have lived under a rock for the last couple of months. :)

Its actually a semi-little know thing, the ipad 4. The ipad 3 was "the new ipad" and the four was a three with a better processor (and retina, but this was in earlier versions i think).

Nope, iPad 4. When shopping for a new iPad, i saw the "new iPad" had the A5 processor and retina...i was dissappointed. This was the iPad 3.

Then doing research into buying this about a month ago, a week prior (beginning of november) the iPad 4 was released along with the iPad mini, sporting an A6 processor. It currently beats the iPhone 5 in benchmark tests.

Happiness ensued.
