iPad has graphics 'bottleneck'

Graphics processor could pose problems

One developer working on the iPad has openly said that the there is a potential bottleneck in the iPad's graphics processor.

Pangea Games CEO, Brian Greenstone told Develop that the graphics chip in the iPad was "a mobile chip, and not really designed for such a high resolution screen".

Greenstone added: "The processor is super-fast, but the graphics chip can get bottlenecked, and that has been the challenge."

Given that the iPad is still so new developers seem to be exploring the best ways to exploit the new platform.
