As I said, for part of this I was on the iPhone so I think there was 1 posts that went unanswered. Plus quoting using the mobile editor simply sucks.
As to my not responding to your comments...well I'm nothing if not verbose so that's a highly amusing statement. Especially since I conceded your point on memory while you were writing this post. I don't believe that the A6 would be memory starved for most things but under heavy load the performance probably would drop low enough that it would suffer vs the iPad 3. That might be deemed unacceptable but honestly, with the way the iPod Touches have been gaming slackers I doubt that Apple would be all that perturbed. For 2D + CoreGraphics you wouldn't notice at all.
Hubris eh? Pot, kettle, black. Where in this post have you addressed the possibility of a 28nm A5X working? Or a downscaled A6X? Or even that the assertion that an A6X class GPU is a requirement for an iPad Mini is wrong.
I guess you're miffed I called you a zealot.
Just strikes me that way and I've been reading what you write for a long long time and you didn't used to seem that way to me.

NO. He said this:
And from there I began my string. So even just before this when I offered him a chance to correct if he had actually meant A5X-A6 the entire time and he didn't, it wouldn't have mattered, as that's NOT what he was saying.
If the A6 could have handled 2048x1536 to Apple's taste, there would not be an A6X.
