iPhone 5 Javascript Benchmarks Over Twice as Fast
By on September 19th, 2012

Earlier this week, we reported that the iPhone 5′s A6 processor is blazing fast. Now a test of the iPhone 5′s A6 processor reported a super quick score on SunSpider’s JavaScript benchmarking tool. Apple’s A6 processor even outperforms Intel’s Atom Z2460 processor. AnandTech was able to run SunSpider v 0.9.1 on an iPhone 5 review unit, and reported that the A6 chip came up with a result of a whopping 914.7 milliseconds, outspacing the second place Lava XOLO X900′s time of 1279.4. The Lava XOLO runs a single-core Intel Atom Z2460 Penwell SoC built on the chip maker’s Medfield platform.

In this test, smaller numbers are better. The final score of 914.7ms beats all of the other devices on the chart and is the fastest SunSpider test AnandTech has recorded for a smartphone. The iPhone 5 is two and a half times as fast as the iPhone 4S (2250ms) and much faster than the Samsung Galaxy S III (1442.9-1824.9ms).
