In this article we’ll be testing the performance of the new Apple iPhone 6 with some gaming and also benchmarks tests.  If you’re interested in a comparison with the HTC One (M8) or Galaxy S5 be sure to let me know in the comments section down below.  Anyway, let’s get started.


Spec wise the new iPhone 6 is powered by the new A8 chip and a dual core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, it has 1GB of RAM, and the PowerVR GX6650 GPU.  The display is also improved from the previous gen as it’s now 4.7 inches and has a resolution of 750 x 1334.

Starting it off with the benchmarks the first test we’ll be doing is 3D Mark.  3DMark simulates the high intensity graphics of all the newest games and tests them on the device.  In our case the iPhone 6 was able to completely max out ice storm extreme which is pretty darn impressive.


Moving on to Geekbench 3 which is one of the most widely respected benchmark apps, this will test the pure power of the Apple iPhone 6 and also the memory.  The iPhone 6 finished with a single core score of 1633 and a multicore score of 2921.  To put that into perspective the iPhone 5S scores 1412 single core score and 2564 multicore.


Finally I’m going to show off a more real world test with a Riptide GP2 gameplay.  So enjoy!
