Benchmarks show that the CPU in iPod Touch 6 is a tad bit under-clocked at 1.10GHz per core compared to the iPhone 6’s A8 chip clocked at 1.39GHz per core. Geekbench 3 gave scores of 1,379 on the single-core test, and 2,440 on the multi-core test which is a huge stride from the A5 CPU-wielding iPod Touch 5.

Even though it’s slightly slower than iPhone 6, the iPod Touch 6 is still six times faster than the previous-generation iPod Touch 5. It also features 1GB of RAM akin to the iPhone 6 / 6 Plus compared to 512MB found in the last-generation model.
