  • iPhone 4S Processor is Throttled

    Tech reports seem to point to the fact that the iPhone 4S has a throttled processor like the iPhone 4.

    The dual core A5 chip in the iPhone 4S is the most powerful iPhone processor yet. It even blows every other mobile phone out of the water in benchmarks. The power of this phone is absolutely astounding and it even competes with some of the highest performance tablets in speed.

    The A5 processor is currently found in two of Apple's devices, the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S. The iPod Touch does not have it yet; it remains at an A4 level processor. However, would you believe me if I said that the iPhone 4S had a throttled processor? It appears so. Geekbench, a popular benchmarking program for machines shows that the iPhone 4S indeed runs an 800Mhz A5 processor. The iPad 2 runs a 1Ghz A5 processor.



    Although the A5 processor is throttled to 800Mhz, it still holds water in what Apple said, "It's up to 2x faster than the iPhone 4." Shown by the Geekbench benchmark test above, the iPhone 4S is way above the iPhone 4 however is slightly lower than the iPad 2. Of course, it really wouldn't make too much sense for Apple to make a mobile phone as powerful as their golden tablet, would it? That being said, don't count out the A5 processor just yet. Let's compare it to some of its competition.



    The iPhone 4S, without a doubt, blows every mobile phone out of the water in performance. It's almost as powerful as Apple's market-leading tablet. The graphics power of the dual core A5 chip is absolutely unmatched by any phone out there as of late. According to Apple, the iPhone 4 has 7x slower graphics rendering than the iPhone 4S. They may have been very liberal on those numbers because according to the benchmark tests, the iPhone 4S has 8x faster graphics instead of 7x.

    If I were you, I wouldn't let the throttle get in the way of my decision. The power is still unmatched by a long shot. Most of it probably has to do with battery life.

    Some iPhone 4S's are already being obtained in Europe. What do you think about the dual core A5 processor? Share below!

      I am sure that they will patch in a speed increase when better batteries become available.

Stop lying like anyway idiot. Take a pic of your SAMSUNG GALAXY S2 and put my username next to it and upload it here. I know FOR A FACT you don't have the phone. Upload a picture and I will leave ModMyI forever.

      Calling you out right now brother. You have nothing to lose except write my username on a piece of paper and put it next to your Sammy you clown.

      Since I knoe you don't know Samsung Galaxy 2 S phone I suggest you do some research about stock Android, custom ROMs and overclocking. Samsung ABSOLUTELY destroys i4S in EVERY SINGLE aspect.

      And if you read my post troll, you'll see the reason why iPhone sells much. Iphone is a pretty flashy phone. That's about it.

      hey bunny. i just copy all of your words and paste them into google translate from english to indonesian and it says "NGOMONG DOANG" .. just google it and you'll find out what's the meaning of.

      to sammy : "NICE!!!!"

      Too bad about bunny. He had some posts that made sense!
      Maybe he can swallow his pride, be a gentleman, and continue to HELP the modmyi world.
      If not, RIP bunny

      I'm looking forward to hear from users about the speed of the new phone. And the new features as well.

      I consider myself a new user, so here is my lowdown. Like it, but don't love it. Speed is nice,pictures are great, gaming is truly more fluid, siri has turned out to be a minor letdown, (yes apple, we know upgrades are coming), the newsstand is annoying untill you quickly slam it into a newly created folder, and i am looking to overclock the processor(s) for a little more speed just to see how it reacts.
      On the camera, the apple video showed multiple focal points, but i am not that smart i guess. I tried what they showed, but it does not work, touching the screen in multiple places for multiple focus points.
      IOs 5 is fast and flashy, but the jump from 3.1.3 to 4.0 was not bad either.
      Taking the phone apart is still a little scary for me, but the further i go, the easier it gets, and it STILL keeps turning on!
      I have NOT been able to put the phone into DFU mode yet. Dunno if this is a bad thing or not, maybe i need to try other button combinations.
      My wife loves it, and i am pleasantly surprised at a (few) features.
      My personal reccomendation,
      If you have a 3g or 3gs, go ahead and make the jump. If you have the 4, stay there and wait for the 5.
      Just my 2

      Just checking back in... did a few tests and the phones are very similar in day to day usage.

      IPhone 4s gets 86k on browsermark while I've tweaked the s2 up to 72k....iPhone 4 was getting around 33k.

      Running iOS 5, I get about 54k on browsermark using the iPhone 4.
