New iPod Touch Nearly 50 Percent Faster Than The Old Model


Posted September 16, 2009 - By r_pad

Apple introduced new versions of its iPod Touch media players last week. In addition to models available with higher storage capacities, the new iPods are nearly 50 percent faster than their predecessors. MacWorld ran a series of benchmarks that support this claim. The site's Dan Frakes wrote:

"For gamers, the more exciting improvement is that the 32GB and 64GB models are allegedly 50 percent faster than the second-generation models and include support forOpenGL ES 2.0, which provides advanced graphics capabilities to mobile devices.

Just as the iPhone 3GS was faster than the iPhone 3G at everything, the new iPod touch feels much faster at any task you throw at it: applications launch (and quit) faster, Web pages load more quickly, processor-intensive games and programs perform better -- you name it."

The improved performance will be even more apparent as more OpenGL ES 2.0 games come out. Even though the iPod Touch's improvements should keep it reigning as the king of all media players, stiff competition has arrived in Microsoft's Zune HD. Personally, I'm extremely disappointed that the new models do not have camera functionality. I'm happy that a deactivated iPhone 3GS is my current media player.

Any of you picking up a new iPod Touch?
