Has anyone tried to test the maximum frame rate one an iPad 3 connected to a 120Hz screen for example?

I would like to know if it's possible to achieve more than the 60fps using the any benchmark/test application or a custom test app using CADisplayLink on an external monitor.

Please report the application or game you tested with - I am leaving this wide open in terms of which app so as to get some initial data on what frame rate the hardware is capable of pushing.

Questions on using the SDK to develop apps are generally off topic here. Hit us up in the chat room if you need more assistance - you might have better luck on StackOverflow for specific coding questions. – bmike Mar 19 '12 at 17:30
@bmike: Actually using any kind of application that displays the framerate would be a good solution. The question is not about how to develop or use an SDK... It's specifically about the iPad/hardware. – Coyote Mar 19 '12 at 17:45
OK - I didn't read it that way. How about I re-open it and let it ride a while. The other moderators will see that I closed it and re-opened it - so we'll see how the community sees it. If they vote it closed - hit us (the moderators) up in the chat room and we can help editing it into shape so others don't interpret it as I did initially. – bmike Mar 19 '12 at 17:51
