Apple iPhone 6s prototype benchmarked on Geekbench?; 2GB of RAM and tri-core 1.5GHz CPU on board
An Apple iPhone 6s prototype has allegedly been benchmarked by Geekbench. Powered by the tri-core CPU on the Apple A9, the phone scored a single-core number of 1811 and a multi-core score of 4577. That blew some Android handsets, like the HTC One M9, out of the water. The current HTC flagship scored a single-core result of 1232 with a 3587 multi-core score.

The iPhone 6s prototype had a higher single-core score than the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge as the latter tallied 1492 on its Geekbench adventure. But the multi-core results were decidedly in favor of the Galaxy S6 edge, which had a score of 5077 in this category. Keep in mind that there are a number of factors that make comparing benchmark results an inexact science.

The Geekbench test also revealed that the iPhone 6s will have 2GB of RAM as originally thought. That was put into question, however, by an alleged Geekbench test that showed only 1GB of RAM inside. With the test results that were revealed today confirming the 2GB of RAM, and the tri-core CPU running at 1.5GHz, all appear right with the world once again.

The Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus are expected to be unveiled on September 9th.


Thanks for the tip!

Not a shocker that it scored higher than the s6 on single core.

actually it will score higher on multi-core too if it is quad-core, tri-core and it only 500 below S6.

Saying stupid things like that, is like saying iOS will work better with 4 GB of ram as well. If it doesn't have it, then why even mention things that the A8X or A9 chip does or doesn't have. Its just stupid.

with more core count of course multi-core score will easily be higher, so saying Quad-core chip scores higher than Tri-core chip in multi-core score is stupid too?

I was wonder if that was the case
Its basically identical to the Air 2 in everything

Also here an "iPhone8,1" benchmark
http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/3202808
Its probably something modified with an A5

Crap,score, as Samsung got 8 CPUs , Samsung 4 CPU m1 scores over 21000 in single core, so try again , also this is the same old score from March so this mean nothing when it comes to 2gb the score that went out the other day was later and only came with 1gb of ram and a hi clock cpu, it also looks lie, an iPad going by the cpu info

My friend, the question is how is 3 cores with 2 gigs of ram hanging if not beating a phone that has 4 cores and 3 gigs of ram? I welcome you to go grab a phone from 3 years ago and put it up against this phone. Heck, go grab the S6 and M9 and I bet it would get owned.

S6 get owned? It scores higher on multicore than the iclone. You think the s6 got owned because of their single core score? The iphone will always be higher because thsir cores are bigger than the s6 cores.
I guess the new kirin 950 owns them all.

with 3 core it scores 4577, of course it will blow S6 out of the water with the same core count.

And it will blow out. Litterally.

It is a bad idea to dream like "Imagine if A8 had 8 cores" because such dreams won't change anything. If Apple A9/A8X with 3 cores fails to outperform E7420 in multicore with 4 big cores then A9/A8X is just slower and do not treat your dreams as a reality.

You do realize that despite having less cores, apple processors have almost the same size as exynos processors?! Adding more cores to apple processors would mean smaller cores, thus no improvement in single core ( would even cause loss of processing power if the same technology is used)!

Yep these are silly comparisons

Samsung design their SoC focusing on multi core performance

The real question is which performs better in real world usage

Um because 3GB doesn't add to anything in terms of performance over 2GB of same type of RAM running same speed

Same goes for number of cores. more core doesn't mean faster if the underlying architecture is so much different. Look at RISC vs x86/x64

You are missing a big thing, iPhone as far as I know, only has rudimentary multitasking at best. Android devices have true multitasking.
As such Android device is doing more then the iPhone, depending on how much you multi-task, and despite this they perform great run everything the iPhone runs at higher resolutions and so on, no problem.

The iPhone and correct me if I'm wrong, is very aggressive in terms of what is allowed to run or not, meaning that it is constantly running less stuff then android devices, yet it performs just as good as the android devices, at reduced resolution.
Resolution alone means there is a lot less work to do, so it isn't really a case of iPhone beating Android, or for that matter the other way around, but the fact that their approaches are different to how they do stuff. According to the test S6 edge does not get owned even by this latest supposed iPhone 6s so yeah...

Number of cores doesnt mean anything - the final result does. The amount of memory doesnt mean anything in Geekbench - the speed of the memory does.
So iPhone6s will still trail the Galaxy S6 by some margin because the single-core score doesn't mean anything, while the multi-core score means everything.

Not really surprised. Knew this the moment they confirmed triple core and 2GB in the iPad Air 2 a week after it was released. A better surprise would be if Apple sticks to 16GB of storage or goes 32, 64 and 128GB.

you dont understand though, the SoC is going to be more power efficient all around and be a little smaller die area size wise, and also they are putting a slightly more power efficient LTE modem inside (20nm Qualcomm Gobi LTE modem cat 6 as opposed to the 28nm qualcomm LTE cat 3 only in the 6) and also other refinements such as lpddr4... iOS 9 is suppose to also be more power efficient all around and be run on Apple Metal now and just in general suck less power, also new Power VR 7XT gpu's which are all around more power efficient too.

just look at the exynos 7420, good amount more performance both CPU and GPU then the exynos 5433 and still sucks and saps less power then the exynos 5433 (20nm)

they should be able to have a little more room inside the 6s but they probabl y will not add battery capacity which would be a shame imo... but i still easily think the 6s and 6s plus will add a few more hours of usage easily and be a nice improvement battery life wise to both models with all this new hardware and revamped focus on the innards of iOS 9 (using apple metal for GUI and everything now, app thinning which gets rid of the 32 bit library in apps and only uses and holds 64 bit binary code) etc.

at worse case the 6s has same battery life as the 6 but with 50% more cpu performance, 60% increase in GPU performance but i think both models will easily have noticeably better battery life then the 6

apple should honestly be using UFS In the 6s if they arent now. would bring nice performance gains alone and also increased power efficiency. please apple put ufs in the 6s lol, you have to contend with samsung here, do not put eMMc inside

At best all power consumption increase will be lowered with manufacturing process.

i feel bad for how ignorant you are, the numbers every single year back up whatever apple claims at their events every single year in multiple benchmarks, showing very similiarily to what apple says, going to a 14nm/16nm finfet process can yield over 30% CPU performance increase and also 35% better power consumption, that isnt even taking into account of optimzations of your SoC architecture. please dont speak when you dont have any clue at all what your talking about, apple hasnt been caught lying once with their performance metric numbers when they annouce it with their new chip, numbers dont lie at all

apple has never gone out and said that "it uses 2x less battery" no that doesnt make sense at at all and you should stop being a fanboy and so ignorant, moving from a 20nm non finfet process to a 14/16nm finfet process yields BIG power efficiency gains, just look at exynos 5433 vs exynos 7420, 7420 has better higher maximum performance and consumes less power overall then the 5433, Samsung even called it "20% better productivity" in reality meaning overall 20% better more better power efficiency and vice versa

i feel sorry that your such a biased fanboy and dont even know what your talking about

you have choices, when you move on to a newer advanced node, you can either apply the savings all to performance and increase performance by a nice amount at same power consumption, or have it 50/50, 25% faster performance, 25% more power efficient then the previous chip it is suceeding. but this doesnt even take into fact of architectural improvements/changes that also can contribute to performance gains and even better power efficiency

(see intel skylake, being built on same 14nm node as broadwell but will be noticeably more power efficient then broadwell, alot of it due to changes and optimizations of architecture)

samsung took the exynos 5433, did some memory optimizations to the ARM stock bred a57+a53 setup alongside with other optimizations to the 7420 that makes it such a better performer then the 5433. on paper the 5433 and 7420 look very similiar with similiar 1.9ghz/2.1 ghz a57 and 1.3/1.5 ghz a53, but the 7420 has many advantages over the 5433, obviously including the cuting edge 14nm finfet process, but also samsung doing their own optimizations to the a57/a53 clusters and improving memory access times and vice versa, also addition of lpddr4 and other things aswell too.

I understand power effiency principles perfectly. I follow pretty much everything related To this industry.

They added the third core to the A8x to differentiate from the A8 and because the fat battery and thermals allowed a third core and it could use the juice to push the higher resolution.

However, with 750p, no thermal room to dissipate, a small battery, they would be better off using stronger dual cores. If Apple was as AWESOME as you like to claim, dual core is still the most efficient way to handle the 6s and 6s plus.

Lol you were just putting up some weak strawman argument about dual core being the defacto right way to approach an SOC design. But now that Apple has potentially embraced a more than 2 cores design, you flip flop around like a fish like I knew you would. Lol hilarious and very predictable.

Anyways, I still think Apple is going to stick with a dual core design for the phones and the tri core for productivity tablets. I could be wrong though and like I said before. I honestly don't care how they get to the finish line. They can use brute force, efficiency, half a core, tri core, octa core, 20 cores for all I care. As long as they cross the finish line fast. That's always been my philosophy, just do the best method for you. You were the one that insisted that dual core was the best method to cross the finish line. Lol

Them not using a tri core design for the 6s is just a guess based on the way they handled SOC's in the past. Nothing more. I am not trying to make any sort of claim. I just don't think it will be tri core but I could be wrong.

flip flop and fish? they still are going very wide cores and few core design, thats what i backed up, you just look like a clown now that i shut your stupid ass comment down, core count doesnt have much to do with anything of battery size or consumption, it is all down to how it is made and manufactured, what type of architecture it uses, vice versa. geekbench 3 leaks, a "tri core" at 16/14nm finfet node will use LESS power overall then the A8 chip at 20nm, all while having noticeably better performance then the A8

you dont even know what the f**k your talking about lol the 3 very wide cores generate less heat then a octo core,

if the A8 was incredible at heat dissapation and suffered very little to no thermal throttling at all, what makes you think their newer brand new A9 built on a much superior 14/16nm finfet node is going to "have heat dissapation issues" ??

you are wrong like you always have been wrong , you dont understand power efficiency principles at all clearly with your stupid ass comment lmao. the a8 had no issues at all with heat or thermal throttling and so apple engineers shouldnt be worried at all about a a9 14/16nm finfet chip that will consume all around less power then the a8 at any load

and yeah fewer stronger single cores are better then multiple weaker cores, i still stand by that argument, by nature and automatically, software takes more advantage of stronger single core performance as software by nature cannot take advantage of multiple cores without heavy multithreading and vice versa and alot of mobile apps dont need 6-8 cores to do something as simple as scrolling down a news feed or something

what i did say is that apple is going the intel route, focusing on architecture efficiency and single core efficiency/single core performance and scale up slowly as they optimize that part of their architecture. just see intels quad core vs a AMD octo core that is clocked higher, intels quad core is able to easily beat a AMD octo core that is clocked higher then the intel quad core, that is the same exact route apple is going, slowly scaling up their cores.

the route apple is going is the most sensible route in terms of SoC design, the a9 is easily going to beat the exynos 7420 as it will suffer very little performance degradation due to being very wide cores that are clocked lower, it will maintain its maximum peak performance much better then the exynos 7420 can.

you are very wrong just like you have been many times in the past on this website lol.... take a seat bruh

fewer very wide cores in mobile> more weaker cores,

exynos 7420 wont hit its full multi core stride that it gets in geekbench 3(almost 5000 multi core score) because the only applications that push all 8 cores on the exynos 7420 to 100% load per core , is benchmarks, nothing else comes even close to putting 100% load on all 8 cores on the exynos 7420 and so the a9 will easily be able to hit its peak performance much easier then the exynos 7420 because it is way easier and by nature software does not take advantage of more then few cores without some serious heavily parrelization and heavy multi threading going on in your application and that takes a TON of work to do and optimize.

just look at the desktop/x86 space, almost a full decade multi core systems came out and over 75% of software ran on windows cant take advantage of more then a few cores at all, what makes you think it is much better on mobile?? lol...... and i never said "apple is awesome or incredible" im just merely stating the facts and truth of what the A9 will contain and you come back with a snark biased delusional fanboy comment lol........

start with the book, computers 101 for dummies and come back here in like a few weeks when you learned a little something about hardware/software

Flip flopping from dual core is the best to tri core is the best just makes you look even worse. Flip flop.

Especially now that the A9 seems to indicate that it's still dual core. Lol

aka you have no response to what i said because you just talk out your rear and really have no clue at all on anything technical or hardware related to the mobile world. please just stop talking before you embarrass your self any further then you already have multiple times before, you fail to realize any benefits in apple going to 16/14nm finfet power efficiency wise and etc, but you tout the same horn loud for Samsung even though you acutally dont know any of the technicality behind manufacturing process, etc etc, anything mobile hardware related or hardware related for that manner and just sound like a ignorant fanboy dweeb

also my belief and still stands as my belief is that apples approach on focusing on single core performance is the best, and is better then just throwing more slower cores inside, that is what i am talking about, and you can see a example such as the a8x which is a very powerful SoC even if it is a tablet, we can expect the a9 to be very similiar to the a8x, but with better power efficiency.

the only thing that look worse then you is the morning glory i left in my toilet bowl earlier today... eh wait maybe not lol.. shoo away AppleCultist/techieXP alt

Those specs just don't sound impressive now.

I won't by anymore phones that don't do split screen, or that come with 1 gig of ram. Those days are over bro. I tried out the Edge Plus and Note 5 today, and all I can say is...Apple needs to step it up.

As an exclusively-Android user of five years who just recently switched to an iPhone for kicks, my biggest issue with iOS isn't the lack of features (of which there are far more than I expected) but the relative slowness of the UI. I could absolutely breeze through my Nexus 5, no hitches.

On my iPhone I find myself waiting for pages to fully load and animations to finish far more often than I would like. I understand this is all there to provide a smoother experience in the end, but the thing is Android already does that WITHOUT the annoying waiting times.

That and the UI on Android is far more intuitive. Sorry Jony, Material Design > iOS UI any day.

I had a similar experience with iOS. I bought a used iPhone 5s six months ago and used it for two weeks before selling it. It was more fluid than the Nexus 5 but I could around the UI quicker on the Nexus 5 than the iPhone. I have no idea why people say iOS is more intuitive.

My biggest gripe about iOS was the counter-intuitive layout. iOS uses centralized settings for all/most of its apps. Same goes for not having the back button outside of the screen real estate

man, it's 2015, and having a three traditional buttons to navigate seems old-school, isn't it?

Yes bro, 100% agreed. For me it's laggy, and just overall slow. My edge was way faster, UI wise, page load wise too. Android also lets you into developer options to tailor it. Apple needs to step it up.

If you really want to get rid of app launching animation just turn reduce motion on.
Animations are there to provide "feels" to the user experience, i actually like it to be slower, so it neatly animates things, and if you really want to compare UI speed, Android KitKat and below really have faster UI animations, as there were fewer animations.

That is why Lollipop is full of animations, as IMO older Android versions are lacking animations, yeah it gets the jobs done, and fast because the animations are barely there, but to user experience it doesn't feel "smooth", it's fast, but not smooth.

I wouldn't be surprised to see split-screen on the Plus. The device will have more than enough power to handle it, and Apple needs more to differentiate the two devices besides screen size and landscape mode on the home screen...

On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't there, because Apple...

I agree with bucky that split-screen on the regular 6S would make little sense.

I agree that the 6 plus may get some form of split screen multitasking. I think this will be the surprise that Apple seems to always have during the fall launch. If you think about it, why have this much horse power and don't use it? They gave the Air 2 this much horsepower for the purpose of split screen multitasking. What's also interesting is that I think force touch will act very similar to the S pen functionality with the exception of writing.
