Just how powerful is Apple's new fifth-generation iPod touch, then?
Well, according to Geekbench, your shiny new iPod is actually less powerful than the iPhone 4S, and "significantly" less powerful than Apple's three-week-old iPhone 5.
To be fair, the fact that the new iPod touch is less powerful than the latter is hardly surprising. The new iPod touch packs an 800MHz A5 processor, while the iPhone 5 houses Apple's newer 1.3GHz A6 chip, after all.
As you can see from the chart below, the new iPod touch is also less powerful than Apple's second- and third-generation iPads.
This chart has been compiled using user-submitted data taken from the Geekbench Browser, which records processor and memory performance.
Scores are calibrated against a baseline score of 1,000. Higher scores are better, and lower scores are, well, not.
