Apple’s A11 Bionic chip is by far the highest-performing system on the market; totally destroys Android phones

“Apple’s A11 Bionic system on chip (SoC) makes the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X by far the highest-performing smartphones available today, according to Geekbench results,” Liam Tung reorts for ZDNet.

“There’s a minor difference in single-core and multicore performance between the three new iPhones, but all three have a massive lead over top-performing Android phones, which are led by Samsung’s Galaxy S8 with either its own Exynos octa-core chip or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835, and Huawei’s Honor V9 with its HiSilicon Kirin 960,” Tung reports. “The iOS single-core benchmark shows that the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus, have scores between 4,204 and 4,181. The iPhone 8 Plus leads on the multicore benchmark with a score of 10,078, followed closely by the iPhone 8 and iPhone X with scores of 10,065 and 9,955, respectively.”

“Android benchmarks meanwhile top out at 1965 on a measure of single-core performance, while multicore scores don’t exceed 6,494. The Galaxy S8 with Samsung’s Exynos 8895 octa-core chip lead on both measures,” Tung reports. “On single-core performance, the lowly iPhone SE with an A9 chip outranks Samsung’s Galaxy S8 on Geekbench.”

MacDailyNews Take: Total destruction.

With each passing year, and especially with iPhone X, it becomes increasingly clear – even to the Android settlers – that the competition has no chance of even remotely keeping up against Apple’s unmatched vertically integrated one-two punch of custom software and custom hardware. The Android to iPhone upgrade train just turned onto a long straightaway, engines stoked, primed to barrel away! — MacDailyNews, September 13, 2017

  1. Specs actually don’t matter. Only market share percentage matters. The iPhone might have the fastest processors but if Apple can’t sell more of them, it probably doesn’t make a difference. Apple will still be considered a doomed company with the iPhone facing declining market share. I think we need to wait and see if the Chinese consumer is impressed enough by the new iPhones to the point of actually buying them. The Indian consumer surely doesn’t care anything about powerful smartphones. They just want them cheap.

    Having the highest benchmarks are nice but if Apple can’t turn that power into increased iPhone sales, then it’s really just a waste of effort. Will the average consumer even be able to tell how much faster their iPhones are? Older iPhones are already fast enough for most tasks and already faster than most Android smartphones are. Making it milliseconds faster isn’t going to be noticeable.

    1. Market share never matters as much as profit share with a reasonable market share. As you know Apple doesn’t play in the cheaptard low end phone market nor do they want to. They’re perfectly content with their present premium market share with premium customers and being the number one company in the world. Plus are barely to keep up with demand as it is with cutting edge components, which is considerable. Any more questions?

    2. According to your post, iPhone sales are declining and Apple is facing the fate of Blackberry.

      Meanwhile, in the real world, Apple continues to sell record-breaking numbers of iPhones every year, and expectations for the 8 / 8+ / X cycle are even higher.

      As more and more developing countries (China, south Asia, sub-Saharan Africa) come online with cheap smartphones, the relative market share of the ultra-high end devices (such as iPhones and top-of-the-line Samsung) continues to shrink. This doesn’t tell us much; we only know that the whole market space is growing significantly bigger. When we look at the actual sales numbers, we discover that yes, they are indeed growing.

      And when we look at actual profits, we discover that Apple is taking more than 100% in profits in the mobile phone space (because some big players are actually making negative profits, i.e. losses, making Apple’s share of profits greater than 100%).

    3. Market share?! Blahahahaha

      Troll, what rock have you been living under for the last 15 years. Ask MS, Dull, Samdung, etc. etc. etc. how that market share thing is working for them. It doesn’t mean squat if you are making 100+% percent of ALL profits with the share you currently have.

      Really, I know you are just trying to get a rise out of people hear but really, you should stick to Facebook. You just come across as dumb.
