The first benchmarks for iPhone 5 have appeared and show a processor that is nearly twice as fast in GeekBench scores as it’s predecessor, the iPhone 4S.

In the preliminary GeekBench score found by MacRumors the new iPhone 5 scores a 1601, while the previous model iPhone 4S scored a high of 851. This should translate into a very noticeable speed increase for just about everything, be it launching apps, editing photos and video, or even something as simple as taking a picture. For those who are upgrading from an iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5, they can expect a significant speed boost, as the iPhone 4′s GeekBench score averages around 380. No more deleting pictures to speed up that slow iPhone camera, the new processor and RAM will speed right through any actions.

To put this number into further perspective, a 1601 GeekBench score is about the same as a 6 year old Power Mac G5 tower, except obviously the iPhone 5 fits in the palm of your hand rather than taking up an entire desk. The data also shows that the iPhone 5's dual core outperforms the most potent of the Android lineup; the Asus Nexus 7 and the Samsung SIII.

The GeekBench entry reveals how the speed boosts are possible by giving us the first information about the iPhone 5′s A6 processor, it’s memory, and L2 cache. Apple isn’t one to traditionally boast about specs, but the hardware on the iPhone 5 is impressive:

Dual-Core 1.02 Ghz ARMv7 Processor (A6)
1MB L2 Cache

cool story bro. Sorry I had to
