Apple introduced new MacBook Pro models packing Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge processors, which means it didn’t take long for them to be put on the bench and speed tested -- by which we mean GeekBench, of course!
In the September issue of Mac|Life, we reviewed the brand-new unibody Mac mini, awarding it 4 stars. But the amount of space we had to work with didn't really lend itself to a deep-dive into the mini's performance, and the results of our real-world testing suite. Luckily we have a website to deal with just this kind of problem...
It goes without saying that the iPhone 4’s A4 processor smokes the previous iPhone 3GS, but those expecting a speed jump equal to the iPad might be disappointed, based on some new benchmarks run with one of the early arrival handsets.
Now that the iPad is actually in the hands of folks who can tear it down and run it through its paces, it appears the device is actually twice as fast as the already speedy iPhone 3GS -- despite having similar specs.
