How Fast is Your iPhone 5 Really?

iPhone 5, Apple

For those of us who don't have time to stand in line (either at a physical or virtual store) to place our order for a shiny new iPhone 5, it will probably be a month or two until we get our mitts on one that we can call our own. That said, we don't have to wait to learn how slow our phone has become (whether an iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3G) now that the new kid has arrived in town.

One of my T-GAAP partners asked a simple question, "How fast is the iPhone 5?", and the other one took up the challenge and did a little research (care of Geekbench). Here's what we learned:

iPhone 5 1650
iPad 3 757
iPhone 4S 634
iPhone 4 390
MacBook 2008 3346
Mac Mini Core Duo 2006 1800

As you can see the iPhone 5 almost has the same processing speed as a 2006 Mac Mini with a Core Duo! Absolutely amazing. It also makes me quite frustrated to see how really slow my iPhone 4 is when compared to the iPhone 5 — 4X slower! Schniekies!

It is now obvious that I'll need to make some time to get in line to secure my iPhone 5! Just having one will make me far more productive, wouldn't you say?!?
