9to5mac reported that they found proof in iOS 5.1 Beta versions of upcoming Quad-Core Chips. “The references to quad-core iPhone and iPad chips come by way of a hidden panel that describes cores that are supported by iOS device hardware. The updated core management software includes an option of “/cores/core.3″, and this represents a fourth available processing coreā€¦”

The report notes that single-core processors such as the A4 found in the iPhone 4 and original iPad fall under a “cores/core.0” designation, while dual-core processors such as the A5 in the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are covered by a “/cores/core.1” designation. The “/cores/core.3” reference thus suggests compatibility with a quad-core chip.

There has been rumors before that Apples upcoming A6 Chip will carry a quad-core processor which will be included in the upcoming iDevices. So will we see this quad core chip in the iPad 3 which is rumored to be released in the beginning of March?
