Wouldn't it make more sense to use the Geekbench app on the iPad Air as well as the Retina Mini? Your comparison isn't fair.
OP probably doesn't have an Air. The score should be the same as the one on the website though as it's somebody's iPad that was used to generate the score.
My guess is that the scoring doesn't come out exactly the same with each chip. But it's close enough where it doesn't really matter either.
I don't have an Airand I thought that those numbers are official. Anyway, I did another test and now I get 1401 and 2529
The difference in technology within the iPads and the minor differences between individual iPads can cause that. Being physically smaller means that the time it takes for information to move around in the internals also attributes to the extremely minor higher score.
Because the rMini is better than the iPad Air silly
There's very little difference between the Air and Mini in terms of performance. The main difference between the two is the size.
Ok, that works for me
Perhaps software updates happened?
The geekbench scores are never exactly the same, also the scores on the Geekbench site are uploaded by other users - they aren't "official".....when I test devices I usually kill all apps running, run three geekbench tests and throw them out. Then I run three more and average them.
Does this make my scores more accurate? I don't know. But it seems to limit the variation IMO.
These are my personal test scores (have both the rMini and Air):
-iPad rMini = 1393/2521
-iPad Air = 1478/2682
It would make sense the Air comes in a bit higher because the processor has a higher clock speed - if only slightly.
For comparison's sake, here's some other iPad and iPhone scores I've done. All Geekbench 3.
-iPad mini = 262/497
-iPhone 5 = 691/1195
-iPhone 5C = 705/1218
-iPhone 5S = 1393/2507
And some Android scores.
-Moto G = 335/1073
-Galaxy S4 = 685/1818
-Nexus 5 = 863/2268
This is hilariously wrong....
