    It doesn't make sense for the physics test to regress. I wonder if 3D Mark hasn't been optimized for this yet.

    I like how on the iPhone test, it said it is one of the most powerful devices and yet it said the same thing on the iPhone 5S when it is 3 times as powerful.

    What about those 2 points where the iPhone 5 wins? Weird

    Physics is usually CPU. The test may not be optimized for the stuff that A7 can do. However, Anandtech's benchmark does show that A7 is not that much improved over physics.

    Actually, physics is GPU. All modern GPUs support hardware accelerated physics.

    The iPhone 5S uses a new GPU architecture from Imagination Technologies and drivers for that architecture are very new / immature. They are essentially v1.0 drivers, and they provide very limited physics acceleration. Future driver releases, which Apple would incorporate into 7.0.X or 7.X, should greatly improve physics performance.

    Edit: The 3DMark physics test disables GPU physics acceleration. Thus, Mikhail's post is correct.

    Unless 3d mark has recently changed their benchmark suite, THIS physics test is CPU bound. If it's not, it would be the first time a 3d mark physics test was not using strictly the CPU in the nearly 15 years I've been using 3d mark.

    You are absolutely right. I stand corrected.

    Futuremark.com:

    "The Merry Go Round Air Show continues in this heavy physics stress test for your CPU. This time, the smoke-trailing planes collide with various cloth and soft-body obstacles, each other, and the ground. The smoke spreads and reacts to the planes passing through it. As this test is designed to stress the CPU physics acceleration on the GPU is disabled by default."

    Wow, iPhone 5s is even faster than the octa galaxy s4, the fastest phone on geekbench (until now)
