AnandTech managed to grab an iPhone 5 review sample and ran it across some SunSpider Javascript benchmark tests and check out the chart above. The iPhone 5 destroys Android's best and it also beats out Intel's Atom chips.

The browser test uses the default browser on each platform so using another browser could wield different results. Intel says that this kind of processing relies on the memory interface of the SoCs, its Atom could best chips based on the Cortex A9 spec because of memory speed issues.

Apple's iPhone 5 has removed these kinds of memory problems making it the fastest mobile Javascript to date.
