The day before, John Poole from PrimateLabs announced that Apple's new smartphone, the iPhone 5, was included in the Geekbench benchmark. To be precise, the results were shown by a smartphone under the technical name iPhone 5.2 based on the operating system iOS 6. As reported, the tested device was equipped with a dual-core ARMv7 processor with a clock speed of 1.02 GHz and 1 GB of RAM.
The novelty scored 1601 points. If we compare this result with the iPhone 4S and iPad, then we can call it more than impressive. The iPhone 4S achieved an average of 629 points, while the new iPad achieved 766 points. It is believed that such a good result was delivered thanks to the new generation A6 processor, which is twice as fast as its predecessor, the A5. In addition, the iPhone 5 left all Android devices far behind.
Commenting on the benchmark results, Poole warned that a pre-release model was being tested, so the tests could turn out to be fake, and the performance of a real device from Apple could differ. But, in fact, this rarely happened, especially since the sales of new items are scheduled for September 21.
