iPhone 5 Boasts 1GHz Dual Core CPU, 1GB or RAM

PrimateLabs, the people behind Geekbench benchmarking tool, has reported to MacRumors that the first iPhone 5 benchmark has come up on Geekbench. The results show a device labeled iPhone5,2 running iOS 6 with a 1.02GHz ARMv7 CPU and 1GB of RAM.

The Geeckbench score of the new iPhone 5 comes in at 1601. Compare this to the average score of 629 for the iPhone 4S, and 766 for the new iPad, and you realize that this is a powerful little device. Granted, this seems to be the fastest iOS device to date, but what’s just as interesting, is that this score for the iPhone 5 also beats out all of the average scores for Android devices on Geekbench.

It would seem that these results are legitimate, but even if they aren’t we’ll find out soon enough, as the device will start making it’s way into customer hands this Friday, September 21st.
