IPS is a LCD panel technology and Apple has used a power-efficient edge LED backlight system behind the screen.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/ipadretina-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/ipadretina-2.jpg" alt="The Retina display was demonstrated with visually-striking games" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The Retina display was demonstrated with visually-striking games</i></p><br />Apple iPad 3 also features an A5X chip with dual-core processor and quad-core graphics, 5 megapixel camera, 4G LTE, and voice dictation (slimmed-down Siri).
