Benchmarks of the iPhone 5 are now being published and show that it is substantially faster than any other smartphone on the planet (20% faster in integer computations than the Galaxy S3 for instance, with a memory access more than 50% faster (should be ideal for hash tables)). So could someone who bought this new baby please test Stockfish's speed on it?

I suppose it depends on which benchmarks you look at.

Not sure if the tester was using the dual US version of S3 or international quad version.But like you and other chess freaks like me the only thing that matters is the Stockfish n/s.Would be good if some testers just ran a multicore chess app to convey the performance gains.

I just saw an impressive benchmark on a mainstream French technonews website, Clubic:
http://www.clubic.com/smartphone/iphone ... one-5.html

As you can see, all the tests give spectacular results, but the most interesting ones for us are the Linpack ones (despite they give MFLOPS instead of MIPS).

Here's the single-core one:

And the multi-cores one:

So how many cores are used in this Galaxy S3? 131.8/55.3 = x2.38
So it's probably the four-cores version, and it doesn't scale very well... This is probably due to the Linpack test itself, as going from one to two cores on the iPhone 5 gives only x1.66.

I'm very curious to see how this powerhouse of a CPU will translate into Stockfish nps...

For the moment we could extrapolate. The iPhone 5 getting 4.4 times faster results than the 4S (in the multi-cores test), this should give nearly 1 Mnps to Stockfish (994.000 nps).

But again, those tests measure MFLOPS, not MIPS, and this is the later that matters with chess apps.

Does the Galaxy s3 (4core version) work for t-mobile?
