While we’ve known that the iPhone 5 is faster than its predecessor, it is nice to finally see that extra speed in action.
The racing title that hit the App Store earlier this summer is very graphics intensive and takes a little while to load on the iPhone 4S. But the new iPhone 5 blows it out of the water in the video. Click here if you can’t see the video.
In every part of loading the game, the iPhone 5 was twice as fast, which is a big improvement.
It was a little harder to see the difference between actual gameplay performance. The site said that the iPhone 4S dropped frames occasionally while playing the title, but the iPhone 5 had a stronger framerate.
The iPhone 5, thanks to 1GB of RAM and its new A6 processor, scored 1601 on the Geekbench 2 test. That’s compared to 629 for the iPhone 4S and 766 for the new iPad. The iPhone 5 also sports around 33 percent more memory bandwidth, which can help speed up performance and power the new 4-inch display.
