Default Question about iPad 2 vs. new iPad

Would games on new iPad (1GB RAM) @ 2048x1536 run any faster than the iPad 2 (512MB RAM) @ 1024x768? Heard memory bandwidth is pretty much equal. Is this true? Or an excuse made up by iPad 2 owners who are finding reasons not to upgrade?

Galaxy on Fire 2 HD (it have better textures also though when new Ipad is detected )and Real Racing 2 actually runs slower on new Ipad (at least for now), due to higher resolution, in GoF 2 you can decrease detail to improve fps, there is slider for that.
.. some comparison screenshots

should run the same, maybe little faster on the ipad 2 as they will use a lower graphical setting

If a developer is using the iOS 5 SDK (and the GLKit) then there is a line of code that must be used in order to enable higher than 30 FPS.

Code:
GLKViewController* myViewController = [GLKViewController new]; //whatever

myViewController.preferredFramesPerSecond =60;
"The default value is 30 frames per second."

http://developer.apple.com/library/i...Reference.html

So unless that line of code is already in the app, then a new version of the app must be published in the app store to enable 60fps.

I've been doing graphics programming for a while, never had to tell an OS my preferred FPS before, kinda weird if you ask me.

Thanks for the awesome replies guys. After thinking about it, think I'd just pick up the 16GB iPad 2 and wait for the iPad 4 (or newer than new iPad whatever). Don't really care much about Retina on iPad anyway. That is, if you guys have solid proof of a iPad Mini coming this year..
