Apple iPhone 5S GFX benchmarks show Apple was telling the truth

The Apple iPhone 5 is a fast phone. The Apple iPhone 5S is faster based on GFX benchmark testing; the Egypt 2.5 HD test shows offscreen 1080p (FHD) results of 56 frames per second for the next iteration of Apple's full-price handset. That is a remarkable rise compared to the 29.8 frames per second scored by the Apple iPhone 5...

The 5S only averaged 3.2 fps less than the LG G2 in offscreen benchmarks. The 5S got 56 fps in Egypt HD Offscreen 1080p while the G2 got 59.2 fps. CPU wise the 5S will probably be behind by a fair margin, but definitely not when it comes to GPU, considering it scores almost identically to the Adreno 330.

As you can see, the score went from 56 to 53 but the pixels on the screen were almost halved. So it wasn't even close to expected scaling or in the proper direction. This result likely shows that the fps were locked in some way to match the screen refresh rate most likely. While nice and all, this just goes to show how a smaller 3 year old screen is holding back the whole device.

Okay,the iphone has resolution of 1136x640,but how do you explain that the new a7 chip which will definetly be in the new ipad,will beat all other competitors running at a resolution of 2048x1536.This must be a powerful chip.

Which is why it's going to be an A7X. A chip with a higher clock speed and a much powerful GPU than an A7 chip

Android can run multiple apps on same time and it's also runs many widgets on background when we use other apps..... What happened if that much of apps running on IOS? Just a question?

Found some benchmarks for those who are curious how Adreno 320 and Adreno 330 stands up against the iPad 4 and iPhone 5.​_rocks_gfx_bench-news-6758.php

These arguments are about as bad as the people who say the Moto X isn't a good phone because it's only a dual core. Simple truth is both iPhones are fast but doubtful anyone would even notice the difference because the old model is more than fast enough. The only way this might be important is if iOS7 is more of a resource hog due to all the new features. That remains to be seen. Or not. People need to let it go, if your phone isn't the fastest any longer, who cares? My N4 is outdated in some ways but I still love it as much as the day I first bought it a year ago. The iPhone being newer or faster doesn't diminish my phone in any single way.
