Spectre Wreaks Havoc As iPhone 6 Performance Drops By 40% In Both Single & Multi-Core Benc
 

 
Apple iPhone 6 Benchmarked Before And After Spectre Patch; Shows Massive Drops In Single And Multi Core Performance

Spectre and Meltdown are big. As we continue to rely on technology, security poses a larger threat day by day. And the existence of such vulnerabilities on a broad array of hardware regardless of software ecosystems shows how poorly equipped we are to deal with them. Both the vulnerabilities have been around for quite a while. To estimate how much these have already compromised isnít our job, but for both our sake and yours, we hope that those who are in charge will thoroughly vet everything.

Ever since the vulnerabilities were discovered, one thing was obvious: performance will take a hit. After all, speculative execution is not a small detail, that can receive an easy patch without compromising computing. Isolating kernels, introducing system calls, adding load fences and ensuring that branch predictions canít be Ďtrainedí will drain performance.

Now, Dutch entrepreneur Melvin Mughal tested out his iPhone 6 after Apple released a Spectre patch. As you can see, this significantly affects performance. Single core scores of the Apple A8 plummet to 924 from 1561, marking a 41% decrease. The result isnít better for multi-core either, which drops to 1616 from 2665, resulting in a 39% decrease.

Looks like Appleís close hardware and software integration isnít enough to keep Spectre at bay. While these results will undoubtedly mean bad news for a lot of users, we should be thankful that they were discovered. And expect manufacturers to overcome the processing gap sooner, if not later. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned. Weíll keep you up to date on the latest.

They're saying the iPhone 6 used in the test had a bad battery so it was throttled on the 2nd test.

F*k Apple and their blatant manipulationtactics. I’m glad this long “conspiracy” wasn’t one afterall, and that despite making $$ out of their blunder and the fact that down the road they will still secure followers, the brand definitely took a hit in its reputation

This reinforces the thought “if Steve Jobs was still alive”...
