Already Tradition: A New Apple Product Launched and Soon Appear Supposed benchmarks his in Geekbench so we can speculate about its (almost always) apparently bestial processing power. This time with the iPhone X, it was a little different: the supposed numbers of the device appeared on the internet even before of his presentation later this morning.
Obviously, with the turmoil of the afternoon news, everyone has temporarily forgotten their numbers, but now that things are calmer and we can look at them with some caution, the first thing we can say if they are real, of course: damn it!
According to benchmark of the called iPhone10.5 (apparently iPhone X), the chip A11 Bionic handset brings a single core score of 4061 while the score 9959. If these numbers alone don't make much sense to you, just compare them to measurements of other great smartphones:
- iPhone 7 Plus: 3510 (single core) and 5938 (multi-core)
- Samsung Galaxy S8: 2024 (single core) and 6279 (multi-core)
- OnePlus 5: 1932 (single core) and 6495 (multi-core)
Not satisfied? Because compare the measurements of iPhone X with other devices, say a little larger:
- 10.5 inch iPad Pro: 3558 (single core) and 9133 (multi-core)
- MacBook Air (2017): 3126 (single core) and 5935 (multi-core)
- 13-inch MacBook Pro (mid-2017, entry model): 4342 (single core) and 9194 (multi-core)
Because . If the numbers for the iPhone X are correct and usually are, we are looking for something beyond an infinite screen with a weird cutout: we will have in our hands a power that many complete computers do not bring. What's good, I suppose: Some of the features of the new device will certainly be quite demanding of this processing power, such as those based on augmented reality technologies and even the face recognition system itself.
Most impressive, in my view, to think about how Apple did or at least claims to have; we will have to see in practice increase iPhone X's battery capacity compared to iPhone 7, even with this seemingly high jump. It is good to note, moreover, that the new device only 0.4mm chubby than the iPhone 7, so no, Apple did not significantly increase the thickness to fit a much larger battery in the iPhone X.
Now, I'm curious to know what will be the numbers of the iPhone 8 It's from 8 Plus. Theoretically, we should see a reasonably similar measurement, after all, the three devices apparently bring the same processing chip. It is possible, however, that Apple slightly "capped" the A11 Bionic on these other devices to create greater differentiation or save battery power; we will have to wait to take the test.

The figures for the iPhone10,2 and to iPhone10.3 certainly the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus respectively have also appeared on Geekbench and prove that all Ma's new line of smartphones brings unrivaled processing power in the world of smartphones. When it comes to numbers, at least.
The iPhone 8 achieved 4201 and 10211 scores on single core and multi-core measurements, respectively; the iPhone 8 Plus, in turn, got scores 4219 and 10215.
Of course, cold numbers never tell the whole story of a device's performance, but at least now we have some certainties: first, that all newer iPhones from the cheapest (emphasis on quotes, please) to the most absurdly Expensive will offer a similar level of performance. We also know that Ma's new smartphones can compete with (or surpass) their most powerful competitors.
Videos with performance comparisons will be fun. 😝
