We all knew the iPhone 5 would be faster than its predecessors. But we could never imagine just how fast it would be, not until now at least. Touch Arcade recently released a very exciting video comparing load times of Asphalt 7 on the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S. And just when we thought there was nothing surprising left about the upcoming iPhone, we’ve been left speechless all over again.
Asphalt 7, the car racing game, is rather heavy on graphics and of course is quite resource intensive, and surely takes some time to load on the iPhone 4S. But on the iPhone 5, it literally happens in the blink of an eye. The video demonstrates the sheer power of the brand new A6 processor and just how much of an improvement it is over the previous processors.
Not only did the game load twice as fast on the iPhone 5, according to the website, even the overall performance was pretty good. While the iPhone 4S experienced frames being dropped occasionally, the iPhone 5 managed a stronger framerate when running Asphalt 7.
Apple did claim that the new A6 processor would be twice as powerful as the A5, and looks like this time, they definitely lived up to their claims. Now, all we need to do is to get our hands on the actual baby and play Asphalt 7 and many more high performance games.
