    Anandtech says the ARM processors being used in phones today were made from an architecture built for servers, where Apple built the A6 from the ground-up for their needs...but over 3 times faster than quad core phones?

    Are CPU benchmarks really this pointless across platforms, or is the Apple A6 really that fine-tuned?

    If that is an accurate LINPACK benchmark, then the iphone would have qualified as one of the TOP500 supercomputers in 1993, if my understanding of the concept is correct. The guy at barefeats.com found a similarly impressive number for LINPACK, though not quite as high. Or maybe it is as you suggest and potentially not a meaningful comparison. I look forward to more results and more smart people talking about it as the iPhone 5 is further benchmarked. In any case, very interesting results. Thanks for posting.

    No doubt a new pinnacle has been reached. We literally have more computing power in our pockets right now than a rather expensive "computer" from years past. Using a fraction of the power to boot. It's rather amazing.
