The SunSpider Javascript benchmark test has been run on the new iPhone 5 and it shows impressive speed improvements, reports AnandTech. The iPhone 5 scored 914.7ms compared to 2250ms for the iPhone 4S and 1442.9ms for the Samsung Galaxy S III.

SunSpider is quickly outlasting its welcome as a smartphone benchmark, but it does do a great job of highlighting issues with the Cortex A9's memory interface. Intel originally hinted at issues in the A9's memory interface as being why Atom was able to so easily outperform other ARM based SoCs in SunSpider. As we surmised in our A6 Geekbench post, it looks like Apple specifically targeted improvements in the memory subsystem when designing the A6's CPU cores. The result is the fastest SunSpider test we've ever recorded on a smartphone - faster even than Intel's Atom Z2460.

I agree, in today's world, the only winner of the benchmark race is whichever one came out last. Still, it's kind of nice to turn what everyone else has been ranting about for the past year on it's ear, that the Android phones are inherently faster and better.

Nick Nick Nick... You see Erics father runs his Scottish Upkilt shot site ( off his Galaxy S3. That same phone runs his moms GILF for hire ( site. These phones are not simply benchmarked, you have to really ride them to make use of all 4 cores.

Performance benchmarks are always interesting because they vary so much between tests. Geekbench tested the iPhone 5 and found it to be slower than the Galaxy SIII:
