Revealed at Apple's "Let Loose" livestream event, the iPad Pro skipped a whole generation of chips (i.e., the M3 series) in favor of the brand-spankin' new M4 chip.

When Apple boasted that the M4 iPad Pro would deliver a significant gen-over-gen performance increase, I didn't really understand the gravity of the iPad Pro's uptick in processing prowess. But now that I tested it for myself, I can't believe my eyes.

The new iPad Pro, Apple's slimmest tablet ever, now features a new Tandem OLED display that delivers striking contrast, true blacks, and a dazzling display with 1,600 nits peak brightness.

However, nothing could prepare me for the mind-blowing results of the iPad Pro's M4 chip. The iPad Pro I tested sports the M4 with the 10-core CPU and 10-core GPU chip, which can only be found in the 1TB and 2TB configurations. (I've got the 1TB variant.)

The other versions, 256GB and 512GB, also have an M4 chip, but the processor has less cores (9-core CPU). As such, the iPad Pro with 1TB and 2TB should slightly outperform the 256GB and 512GB options because the extra core implies that it should handle more tasks at once for simultaneous processing.
