The processor is clocked at 1GHz and is of the same class as the iPad 2 processor.
The RAM is indeed 1GB confirming numerous previous reports including our own whispers.
The mid-700 score is similar to the iPad 2, which scores also scores in the mid-700s, while the original iPad scores in the 400s. The difference is likely due to the benchmarking software’s inability to test the 4 core GPU or the “X” factor in the iPad’s new A5X chip.
There are many more scores at the source. Thanks Daniel!
