The new iPad browser benchmarks are here

Lots of people are using the iPads just for web browsing so naturally the browser benchmarks matter a lot. We’ve put all the three iPads and the Transformer Prime through SunSpider and Browser Benchmark and the results are now out.

Long story short – the new iPad seems to offer the same browsing performance as the iPad 2.

Shocker? Don’t think so. Both the new iPad and the iPad 2 use same CPUs – the major player responsible for most of those scores. Surely the bigger screen offers a lot more viewing estate, but this is where the new GPU kicks in, so no game changer in the scores here either.

The new iPad 3 scores equal if not marginally lower results than the iPad 2 on both test. See for yourselves.
