Apparently it may just be a product fit for a "milking strategy", with no proper improvements other than the screen, but a nice new price mark-up.
In fact the screen may be too much for the hardware.
tegra3 will easily push infinity pad screen. people can't even compare new Ipad screen to this because apple went overkill on the display. therefore IT HAD TO HAVE BEEFIER GPU. the resolution on infinity pad is true 1080P but not as high new Ipad resolution. so a beefier gpu in infinity pad is probably not even needed. tegra3 was already created with higher resolutions in mind. Asus didn't just think of infinity pad just recently. all of this was thought of way back and is why they opted tl use a newer variant of tegra3. testing with tegra3 chip in infinity pad has been ongoing for a long time. If Asus saw issues, they would've swapped chips out and changed its specs. only reason the LTE version is using Qualcomm S4 chip is because it has built in radio for cellular 4g data.
best believe if the Icera 4g radio chip paired with tegra3 was already ready, they would've used that one instead.
plus it will use T33 variant. which is higher clocked. plus its possible they could've upped the clock on gpu also. going from 520Mhz clocked gpu to their more standard 600mhz. we already have gpu overclocking in developement section and people pushing 75Fps on GL Bench Egypt or whatever its called..lol. so still plenty of gains and tweaks left in tegra3.
