Apple is widely expected to reveal an updated version of the Apple TV set-top box along with the revised iPad later this evening (local time). According to The Verge both the iPad HD and the new Apple TV will feature the same A5X chips. The rumoured A6 chip will apparently be part of the iPhone 5.
The updated Apple TV is said to boast 1080p capabilities and work with the iPad and other Apple devices to provide streaming functionality.
There is also speculation that the new iPad will feature haptics technology from Finnish company SenSeg, adding tactile features to the screen of the device.
