I am absolutely shocked. Apple's 800 Mhz A5 is superior to Samsung's Exynos at 1.2 Ghz? Wow.
I HATE my iPhone and am determined to switch to ANDROID, but I must commend Apple, they have the best CPU by far if it beat CPU's clock so much higher.
Blows my mind.
Yes and no. There are YEARS between revamps of the ARM cpu design. The ARM A8 was the standard for over 2 yrs. I would have liked to buy the first ARM Cortex A8 CPU, and ride the speed train for those 2 yrs.
I would NOT want to buy the ARM Cortex A8 phone, just to have all Cortex A9 phones come out one month later.
Numbers where all over the place when i did SunSpider a few times on my phone Nexus One its just stupid. I mean i can't see how thoes scores can be used if they vary so much.
Found a link here with more SunSpider scores
Sorry didn't see the first page with changed numbers in OP
