    There was some discussion in another thread about the scores being given on Geekbench 3 for devices running iOS 7 GM and how they were so "low".

    As I mentioned, I spoke to the devs on Twitter and they confirmed that scores on GB 2 and GB 3 were not comparable due to benchmark methods.

    So, my iPad 4 running iOS 7 GM with Geekbench 2 returns a score of 1795.

    Running Geekbench 3 we get Single Core Score of 767 and a Multi Core Score of 1423, a combined total score of 2190. Now I don't know if you're supposed to add both scores in GB 3 together, but I found something interesting when doing the same test on my wife's iPad 3 running iOS 6.

    iPad 3 - Geekbench 2: 756
    iPad 3 - Geekbench 3: Single Core Score - 261, Multi Core Score - 495 (756 total).

    Same score. Coincidence?

    Correct - Cannot be compared

    No - Cannot be added. They are separate scores.

    Yes - Just a coincidence that they are the same.
