    How can we possibly get benchmarks already?
    Because some people know stuff about it. Even if it has not been released yet.

    Because someone at Apple has installed a benchmark application and uploaded a result, which has happened multiple times in the past, including web surfing information.
    No one here knows about battery life of iPhone 5s, go figure about such a specific information as Touch ID's battery consumption.
    :rolleyes:

    people do seem to know alot the GPU/CPU. if we know someone who knows alot about stuff behind the scanner.... then he might know somethign about energy costs.

    heck maybe its desame battery consumption as any other fingerprint scanner. then someone might know how many mAh that consumes per scan...
