Primate Labs team has noticed the arrival in its database Geekbench tests a measure of performance for what appears to be the iPhone 5. The product being announced now, the chances become greater that the score actually comes from the new device. The form associated with this A6 Geekbench provides a model of 1.02 GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM.
The score from the average climbs to 1601 tests. For comparison with other iPhone and iPad, the iPhone 4S peak at 629 (MHz processor and two hearts A5/800) and the iPad 3 is 766 (A5X / 1 GHz dual-core too). If we go back to the very first iPhone, trotting … 136.
Apple, in its presentation of the iPhone 5, claims that performance processor and graphics can be up to twice as high. Geekbench figures, which will be validated once the model for sale, go far in this direction.
Primate Labs has released its measurement software on Android, you can also locate the main protagonists of the time between them. Galaxy SIII appears in 1560 (Exynos 4412 to 1.4 GHz quad-core). It is slightly exceeded by the Nexus 7 tablet with 1591 (T30L Tegra 3 1.3 GHz 4-core) but it is outside the measured S HTC One 1258 (S4 Snapdragon 1.5 GHz and 2 hearts).
If the result of the iPhone 5 is confirmed, it may again illustrate the optimization work done by Apple on the chip (see also iPhone 5: custom-processor and 1 GB of RAM). She succeeds in doing slightly better with its dual-core A6 processor that of its main competitors, despite their much higher frequencies and the presence of double hearts.
Moreover, even within the range HTC Geekbench tests give the advantage to S One of two cores (Qualcomm signed) X One facing the quad-core (designed by NVIDIA) and both 1.5 GHz. In short, better a well-tuned engine a big engine.
Watching the numbers displayed by the test of unknown origin, Anandtech was surprised at the value obtained on testing bandwidth to memory. The A6 is capable of reaching a ceiling much closer to its theoretical maximum, which was able to do the A5. Again it will wait for the phone to sort fact from fiction.
