iPhone 5 Benchmarks Appear in Geekbench

Arnold Kim:

The total Geekbench 2 score comes in at 1601. Poole notes that the average score for the iPhone 4S is 629 and the average score for the iPad 3 is 766. A comparison chart of previous iOS devices can be viewed at Geekbench. The numbers seem to validate Apple’s claim that the A6 processor is twice as fast as the A5 and any previous iOS device.

For reference, that’s a higher score than any PowerBook Apple ever shipped — looks like PowerPC laptops maxed out at just under 1000.
