Geekbench test shows Apple iPhone 6 to feature 1.4GHz dual-core A8 processor and 1GB of RAM
The Apple iPhone 6 has allegedly been run through the Geekbench test, giving us some interesting information about the 4.7 inch model. According to the test, the iPhone 6 will be driven by a dual-core 1.4GHz A8 processor. That is a minor increase from the 1.3GHz dual-core A7 that powers the Apple iPhone 5s. And for those of you hoping that Apple would make the jump to 2GB of RAM, the Geekbench test says that Apple is sticking with 1GB of the stuff on the iPhone 6.

As far as the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is concerned, the only specs that have been leaked out (besides the screen) are the rumored 2915mAh battery and the 2GB of RAM said to be on board. The good news is that talk of delayed production of the phablet has given way to speculation that the 5.5 inch model will be released on September 19th, along with the 4.7 inch iPhone 6.

45 minutes to showtime and the excitement is building. In the meantime, you can view the results of the Geekbench test below.

At least 2 GB of RAM should be present on the iPhone 6 to make it competitive with high end Androids and WPs. Nevertheless, 1 GB is still more than enough to run iOS 8 perfectly.

Not on the iPad Air/Mini 2. Safari crashes every four minutes if you have three tabs open.

Never had this problem on my iPad 4. Perhaps an issue with the chipset.

With 512MB of RAM, lower screen resolution, stripped version of iOS 7 and weaker GPU.

Its sad that the general consumer base will see the 1gb of ram and compare it to androids 2-3. Its really hard to compare apples to oranges, they need to pick up the devices and test the end user experience themselves and make their choice from there.

Already played around with 1GB and dislike it. iPhones/iPads should employ 2GB of RAM. Don't be that guy now.

And i've used it and it works just fine. Anecdotal evidence works both ways. Don't be that guy now.

iPhone 5S/5/4S/4/iPad Mini w/ Retina/iPad 3 in the family. Pretty sure my opinion is justified.

There's no telling what future OS updates and games may contain. From my experience plenty of iPhone users have quite a few tabs open on safari along with several opened apps so if Apple decides to do more robust multi-tasking this limitation will hurt them in the future. Just look at the shift from iphone 3G to the 3GS.

The reason iOS runs smoothly is because it is perfectly optimized...for the most current device. Run it on anything else, and it will lag like crap.

My money is on quad core. Nowhere above does it say dual core.

Based on the multicore score, it seems like it's a dual core processor :(

Multi-core = more than one core = possibility of four.

26. Busyboy unregistered

Do the math papa. 1600 for one core, 2900 for multi core. It's obviously dual core

Until Apple says it'd DC, I'm sticking to QC. Oh and btw, justify your logic here. http://www.anandtech.com/show/8035/qualcomm-snapdragon-805-performance-preview/2
