Apple didn't say but a benchmark test did it.
The same Vietnamese tech site that filmed the first ever new iPad unboxing video confirmed it.
Just a few minutes ago, we informed you about the first ever 3rd gen iPad unboxing video by the Vietnamese site tinhte.vn, now they have confirmed via Geekbech app test that the total amount of RAM available is 1GB and the A5X Processor clock speed is 1GHz (Dual core, this means 2Ghz. Quad core for GPU).
Just a quick remembering note: The iPad 2 has 512MB of RAM and the original iPad only 256MB with clock speeds of 1Ghz (Dual core but not quad-core for graphics) and 1Ghz (single core) respectively.
