  • IPhone 5's A6 CPUs Running at 1.3GHz According to New Geekbench Results


    Apple’s A6 processor found in the iPhone 5 might be operating faster than originally thought according to a newly-released build of Geekbench.

    Apple’s iPhone 5 is considerably faster than the iPhone 4S and Apple quoted a 2x performance increase during the iPhone's announcement, but was surprising mum on their new A6 processor specs. Originally the A6 SoC reportedly had a dual core 1GHz CPUs and three GPUs in a custom ARM layout. However, the new testing has clocked the dual core CPUs at 1.3GHz.

    The updated Geekbench tool, version 2.3.6, released Wednesday provides more accurate CPU reported due to an improved frequency detection algorithm Primate Labs’ John Poole told Engadget.

    "Earlier versions of Geekbench had trouble determining the A6's frequency, which lead to people claiming the A6's frequency as 1.0GHz as it was the most common value Geekbench reported." — Poole
    Poole disagrees with other reports that claims that the A6 has the ability to dynamically overclock itself during CPU-taxing processes.

    "I don't believe the A6 has any form of processor boost. In our testing, we found the 1.3GHz was constant regardless of whether one core or both cores were busy." — Poole

      Lol yes my regular usage is business usage. Phone calls, emails and texting. During the day my personal phone is used for business needs. Constantly on it and take multiple calls.

      Do you ever have anything good to say except Samsuck and general Android bashing? Because clearly, you don't have a clue what your talking about.

      Mines been on this time for 9 hours and just got the low battery alert. You must have got the one with the Energizer bunny in it.
