It uses the fairly powerful MALI-T760 graphics that provides very good performance not only in benchmarks but in today's popular 3D games.

Despite not seeing a boost in resolution, the iPad 2's display is still the best we've seen on a tablet with bright and vivid colours, impressive black levels (making videos look that much better), and of course all important superb viewing angles.
