iPod touch "significantly" less powerful than iPhone 5
Geekbench has some early benchmarks from the iPhone 5 and Apple's latest iPod touch. Though it's a nice improvement over previous models, the fifth-generation iPod touch didn't fare so well when compared to other Apple handhelds.
The new iPod touch scored a 619, which places it right below the iPhone 4S (654) and well above the original iPad (454). It pales in comparison to the iPhone 5, which scored an impressive 1,573. Much of this discrepancy can be attributed to the A6 processor and 1 GB RAM present in the iPhone 5. In comparison, the iPod touch includes an A5 processor and 512 MB of RAM.
