Get your salt shakers ready, boys, it’s time to peruse some benchmark tests. This time it’s the spanking new iPhone 4S (supposedly) under the semi-accurate microscope.
Ultimately, the Geekbench results suggest that the iPhone 4S is 68% faster than the original iPhone 4, but not quite as nippy as the iPad 2.
The iPhone 4S walks away with a Geekbench score of 622. That’s significantly higher than the iPhone 4’s 370, thanks – of course – to the iPhone 4S’ dual-core A5 processor.
However, 622 ain’t quite as high as the iPad 2’s score of 749, suggesting the iPhone 4S’ A5 processor is underclocked at 800MHz.
Graphics performance is also significantly better on the iPhone 4S, and is said to be 7x faster than the iPhone 4.
Still, we would’ve quite liked to see a 4in display (sorry, couldn’t resist!).
The iPhone 4S lands on Friday, and preorders are currently going through the proverbial roof.
