“Apple’s new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are far and away the most powerful smartphones the world has seen thus far,” Zach Epstein reports for BGR. “In terms of both raw benchmark test scores on paper and real-world performance, Apple’s latest mobile devices outshine every other phone on the market. In fact, they’re even more powerful than Apple’s latest iPad Pro tablets, which is no small feat.”

“As powerful as they already are though, Apple is constantly working on next-generation products, looking to make them better and faster than their predecessors,” Epstein reports. “Now, it looks like benchmark tests from Apple’s next-gen [A10X] processor have leaked [ahead of it’s expected inclusion in iPads early next year], revealing huge performance gains that are somehow even more impressive than what we just saw from the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.”

“As a refresher, the iPhone 7’s new A10 Fusion chipset manages impressive scores of 3490 in single-core Geekbench tests and 5580 in multi-core tests,” Epstein reports. “According to this leak, Apple’s upcoming A10X scored 4236 on Geekbench’s single-core test and a ridiculous 6588 on the multi-core test. ”
