    Perhaps the CPUs are really a close match, but the iPad has a slight lead. It's not exactly apparent if this means the iPhone 4 has a slower (slightly) CPU or if iOS 4.0 actually slowed the A4 chip down a good portion.

    iPod Touch 3rd gen thrown in for good measure...

    In case you are wondering, iPad at 1x speed decimates the test and comes in at roughly 1.5s ahead of everything.

    Interesting... Seems like the extra ram would take care of the extra things running in the background with iOS 4.0, making iPhone 4 just as fast.

    Both the iPhone 4 and iPad were freshly restored with no tweaks whatsoever and just the benchmark app installed though. I even made sure nothing else was running in the background on the iPhone 4, so RAM is not an issue here...

    I suspect that if this speed test holds true and the results of a javascript test done by Ars Technica a while back are true, then the iPhone 4 may actually just have a 800MHz CPU or something along that line instead of a 1GHz chip like on the iPad. Of course it's just speculations now, and until iPad gets iOS 4.0, it's quite hard to tell...
