iPhone 3GS OpenGL Benchmarks

Daniel Pasco:

After several different tests, the overall trend was starkly apparent: the iPhone 3GS ran about twice as fast as the 2g Touch in every test.

The results are specific to our own application and are definitely not all-inclusive, but the figure is still significant and interesting. I haven’t updated any of the code to take advantage of the OpenGL ES 2.0 features, so this is simply comparing ES 1.1 performance on the two platforms.

(Keep in mind that the second-gen iPod Touch is faster than the original iPhone and iPhone 3G.)
