5 Ways to Benchmark Your iPad
Benchmarking the iPad isn’t the easiest of tasks. It’s not as if you can just sit down, grab the “iBenchmark” application and run the results across every comparable i-style device you own. However, there are some tests you can hit up–and some tests you can check out–that will give you a good, real-world demonstration of just how speedy the iPad is compared to its smaller predecessors, the iPhone and iPhone 3GS.
The real fun begins when you compare the iPad’s performance to that of the original iPhone—you know, back when the idea of “3G” network connectivity was just a dream in Steve Jobs’ head. On this, the iPad is anywhere from 12-times, to 428-times, to 8,750-times faster than the first-generation iPhone, depending on the benchmark.
I’ll list out these results in more detail below. However, you’re probably wondering how you can go about benchmarking one of your Apple devices for your own comparative analysis. Provided you can figure out how to get them to work (Hockenberry doesn’t leave instructions), you can grab the benchmarks he used for the aforementioned performance comparisons and run the tests yourself.
As for other tests you can run on your iPad. Well, there are always the stress tests…
So, to recap, here’s how you can benchmark your iPad:
- Run Hockenberry’s tests… somehow
- Run the V8 Benchmark Suite
- Bust out the stopwatch and load pages/apps
- Get a bat
- Pleasantly wait for an App developer to run a custom OpenGL ES performance test
