Apple’s 2017 iPhone lineup, made up of the impressive iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, is very much the talk of the town right now and grabs the spotlight for a good reason. All three new iPhones are excellent devices for various reasons, with one of those being the new A11 Bionic chip that powers all three latest iPhones.
With each subsequent update to its iPhone lineup, Apple introduces a custom SoC (system-on-chip) with an impressive amount of power. And Apple is keeping that tradition with the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. Each of those handsets sports a custom A11 Bionic processor with six cores of computing muscle—four high-performance cores and two power efficiency cores.
A recent Geekbench test has confirmed that the iPhone’s new A11 Bionic Chip absolutely outperforms every other processor chipset, including Samsung’s in-house Exynos 8895, Kirin 960 from Huawei and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835.
The Geekbench scores for the iPhone X reportedly started to surface online just a few hours ahead of the official announcement at the iPhone event. The report confirms that the new Apple A11 Bionic chip is the fastest among the current-gen mobile-processor chips with a 4,061 single-core score, while its multi-core score on the 6-core chip nearly hit 10,000 (9,959, to be exact) points. Those numbers are decent improvements over the iPhone 7 that Apple released last year.
To put them into perspective, Samsung Exynos 8895 powered Galaxy S8 has secured 1900 points, while Kirin 960 from Huawei scores 1880 and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 scores 1800 points in Geekbench’s single-core benchmark.
Let us wait and see if the Apple iPhone X will continue to dominate across other performance benchmarks like GFXBench in the coming days. If it does so, the A11 Bionic chip is going to set some records.
