NVIDIA Tegra3 Quad Core vs Apple's A5X Dual Core Heavyweight Battle Coming Soon

In yesterdays "New iPad" announcement, it was said that the new Apple A5X DUAL core processor was four times faster than the NVIDIA Tegra3 quad core processor. Challenge accepted.
Apple tried several times to say the words quad core to escape the fact that the A5X is actually a dual core chip. When they said quad core, they were speaking in reference to the graphics processor in the A5X which is quad core. Bravo Apple.
Now the NVIDIA Tegra3 has a 12 core graphics processor with a quad core system processor which is what will be in the HTC One X. Ken Brown, spokesman for NVIDIA, said "It was certainly flattering to be called out by Apple, but the performance claims are sketchy without more data. We don’t have the benchmark information. We have to understand what the application was that was used. Was it one or a variety of applications? What drivers were used? There are so many issues to get into with benchmark. At some point it will become more clear what the performance really is, for now, Apple has a really generic statement.”
I have never said this but I can not wait till the New iPad comes out so NVIDIA can test the heck out of it and then we can see if there is any truth to back up Apple's "Bold" comments.
