    Does anybody know them?

    I'd like to know the scores for the mini against the original one.

    There are no Geekbench 3 scores for the retina mini, but you can expect the same performance as the iPad Air.

    Single core score: 1450
    Multicore score: 2650

    For the first gen. mini the scores are:

    Single core: 260
    Multicore: 495

    Ah, brilliant. See, I was thinking that it'd be very similar to the Air. But I didn't know if the form factor would affect the scores. - So a jump from the original mini going to the 2nd gen is going to be great isn't it!?

    Biggest jump ever in iOS history.

    Sarcasm?

    If not, I think it is too.

    It's the biggest leap in a single generation of iOS device, ever (HUGE CPU increase 4-5x faster and even bigger GPU increase more than 8x faster) + a huge increase in screen quality (retina obviously) + a 128 gb option.
    You should notice a difference :p

    That just shows how crappy the mini internals were for it's time. one generation jump and the difference in numbers are ridiculous.

    I know this was true on paper, but the Mini still felt really fast and smooth. Needless to say I'm ecstatic over the A7 though.

    One generation mini, but a two CPU generation jump.

    In terms of spec, yes. They could have been better.. but as always software is always tied in to the hardware with Apple. It never always matters about it because the user experience is so fluid.

    Remember 1st Generation iPad? 1st Gen Apple TV? Always the same case.
