First iPhone 5 Benchmarks Appear in Geekbench, Show a 1GHz A6 CPU & 1GB RAM

John Poole of PrimateLabs says the first iPhone 5 benchmark has hit Geekbench. Results are showing an iPhone 5,2 device that is running iOS 6, with a Dual-Core 1.02GHz ARMv7 processor and 1GB of RAM.

MacRumors:

The total Geekbench 2 score comes in at 1601. Poole notes that the average score for the iPhone 4S is 629 and the average score for the iPad 3 is 766. A comparison chart of previous iOS devices can be viewed at Geekbench. The numbers seem to validate Apple’s claim that the A6 processor is twice as fast as the A5 and any previous iOS device. This one score also places the iPhone 5 ahead of the average scores of all Android phones on Geekbench. The full Geekbench results further breakdown processor, memory and bandwidth performance.

The A6 appears to be clocked higher than the A5 (the A5 in the iPhone 4S ran at 800Mhz). The 1GB of RAM in the device was previously confirmed.

While the results on Geekbench do have a chance of being faked, Poole seems to believe that the results are legitimate.

The iPhone 5 will be released on September 21.
