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
"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

Bought this app earlier today. Benchmarked at 1643 and actual 1.29Ghz guess they rounded to 1.3Ghz.

the iphone 4s only runs at 800mhz? I just tried this app with it I thought the iphone 4s had a dual core chip in it running at 1ghz? how fast are the older phones they must be a lot less compared to the 4s and 5.

I've just down loaded from iTunes
Chip running 1.10
Bench mark 1636
Either wee have 2 DIFFERENT ip5's or this this bench software is FALTY AH
My batt got it last Thursday 5 day charge since Monday still got half batt
My 4s has 10 days batt apple have been asking me how I done it this was one of the reasons why apple sent mine early in the uk
HAVE A GOOD DAY GUYS

Isn't the S3 1.5? I guess Samsung is right on the next big thing already being here.
Okay I better run before I get attacked by fanboys.

The phone doesn't report it's CPU frequency at all .
#4830596 - Pastie
iPhone51:~ root# sysctl -A
hw.cpufrequency: No such file or directory
So until we hear it direct from Apple, 1.3 GHz might be the best guess. Not that frequency is a good comparison mechanism when the architecture changes...

Also the iPhone 5 for me lasts about 10 hours of "screen time" no need to carry cable. And for that matter never did with any other Iphone
