Apple Slowly Phased Out iPad 2 with 32nm Inside
Looking for iPad 2 32GB 64GB? Your wants may slowly diminish — Good news though, A5 32nm SoC found in iPad 2 16GB
Did Apple slowly phased out iPad 2 ? As of my writing Apple Store currently lists only iPad 2 16GB WiFi and iPad 2 WiFi+3G version for sales. If you are lucky you may still find 32GB and 64GB in your favorite Apple premium reseller in Malaysia.
iPad 2 16GB 32nm A5 SoC
These iPad 2 are special. According to AnandTech, iPad 2,4 uses the latest 32nm A5 SoC (System on a Chip). The current generation of iPad has 45nm. We will be seeing more of this new technology in Apple future products — perhaps in iPhone 5?
From personal experience, the smaller the nm the better the performance. e.g. less heat, longer battery life and everything else runs snappier and faster.
If you’re assembling your own PC — you know these processors with 32nm don’t come cheap. 32nm can be found in Core i3 & i5 in desktop computer and the successor to 32 nm technology is the 22 nm (Ivy Bridge)
