iPad 2 vs iPad Multitasking Performance Compared

As any original iPad owner can assure you, the iPad - even with its lowly 256MB ram - still offers one of the most immediate and fluid experiences you can find in any tablet; even when compared with Tables offering much better hardware specs.

However, just like what happened with the iPhone evolution, from the 3G to the 3GS and to the iPhone 4, once again the performance jump offered by the iPad is better felt when trying the two models side by side.

As you can see in the following video comparing App fast switching in bothe the iPad and iPad 2 the differences can really be felt. Thanks to the new A5 dual-core CPU, and twice the Ram, the iPad 2 can easily switch back and forth between Apps effortlessly; even in extreme cases like having two apps streaming video (a scenario where the iPad 1 almost freezes!).

So, be sure to keep using your iPad 1 far away from any iPad 2, because just like what happened with the iPhones... if you try out one of the new generation models for a couple of days, going back to the "old" models will truly reveal it to be slower than you ever felt it was.
