    My iPad scored 460 while my iPhone 4 scored 360. They both have the same processor, but the iPhone 4 has twice as much RAM. How can the iPad score so much higher?

    I'm pretty sure the processors are clocked differently for heat management.

    Yeah the ipads got the full 1GHz A4 in it. iPhone 4's one is underclocked to I think 800MHz.

    Exactly.
    iPad uses a full 1GHz A4 chip whereas iPhone 4's is a downclocked version.
