The iPad 3 may get a big boost in speed thanks to a new quad-core processor, according to 9to5Mac.Hints about the new processor — likely the “A6” — have been found in the latest iOS 5.1 beta software being tested by developers right now.

This means that the devices will be faster and also have the capacity to power new high resolution displays as well as advanced software.

Gamers will get a treat as this will equal more horsepower needed for gaming and those wishing to use their iPhone or iPad to take photos will find that they will have a shorter wait in between photos. Quad-core processors will also produce enhanced navigation within the operating system.

The rumour makes sense as the iPad 3 is already rumoured to have a higher resolution display and an HD FaceTime camera.
