    iPhone 5 Benchmarks Show Double the Speed, 1GB RAM, Dual-Core 1GHZ CPU



    The first benchmarks for iPhone 5 have appeared and show a processor that is nearly twice as fast in GeekBench scores as itís predecessor, the iPhone 4S.

    In the preliminary GeekBench score found by MacRumors the new iPhone 5 scores a 1601, while the previous model iPhone 4S scored a high of 851. This should translate into a very noticeable speed increase for just about everything, be it launching apps, editing photos and video, or even something as simple as taking a picture. For those who are upgrading from an iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5, they can expect a significant speed boost, as the iPhone 4′s GeekBench score averages around 380. No more deleting pictures to speed up that slow iPhone camera, the new processor and RAM will speed right through any actions.

    To put this number into further perspective, a 1601 GeekBench score is about the same as a 6 year old Power Mac G5 tower, except obviously the iPhone 5 fits in the palm of your hand rather than taking up an entire desk.

    The GeekBench entry reveals how the speed boosts are possible by giving us the first information about the iPhone 5′s A6 processor, itís memory, and L2 cache. Apple isnít one to traditionally boast about specs, but the hardware on the iPhone 5 is impressive:

    Dual-Core 1.02 Ghz ARMv7 Processor (A6)
    1GB RAM
    1MB L2 Cache




    The iPhone 4S had 512MB RAM and a dual-core 800MHz A5 processor, while the iPhone 4 also had 512MB RAM but only a single core 800MHz A4 CPU.

    First iPhone 5 Geekbench results: Dual Core A6 more than doubles iPad 3 score, more:

    First iPhone 5 Geekbench results: Dual Core A6 more than doubles iPad 3 score, narrowly beats high-end Androids






    While it is easy to fake Geekbench results, the above 1601 score purportedly coming from an iPhone 5 (from a reviewer?) could be an indication of the type of speed underneath the A6 processorís hood. The score is more than double any A5 processor iPhone or iPad has achieved, and it ranks just above high-end Androids.
    Here is a quick comparison versus the iPhone 4S.


    No iOS device has ever crossed 800 before, so the 1601 score is a significant leap. Even the 2004′s most powerful Apple computer, the Power Mac G5, only scored 1571. Just think about that.

    For reference: the quad core Tegra 3-powered Nexus 7 scored a 1591 and the quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III scored 1560 in the testó narrowly missing the new standard for mobile devices. (Note: Galaxy S IIIs running Jelly Bean still outperforms the iPhone 5.)

    The Geekbench results also seem to confirm a 1GHz ARMv7 processor and 1GB of RAM we heard about yesterday.

    [Via HackerNews] The full comparisons of Apple devices are at the top, while Android comparisons are below:

    Dimming the screen helps to extend battery life. You can either lower the default screen brightness based on your preference or turn on Auto-Brightness to allow the screen to adjust its brightness based on current lighting conditions. Launch the Settings app, scroll down and tap on Brightness & Wallpaper and set Auto-Brightness to On. Note: Apple enables it by default.
