iPhone X obliterates Android phones, iPad Pro and MacBook Pro in benchmarks

Apple iPhone X

Apple’s iPhone X made its big debut earlier today, and it’s not only the most radically designed iPhone ever, but it’s also the most powerful. In fact, it’s insanely powerful.

According to The Next Web, a device bearing the monikor “iPhone10,5” showed up on the Geekbench catalog a day before the big launch. And its results are astonishingly.

It completely runs circles around anything from the current Android camp. Yes, this includes the latest Samsung Galaxy S8, OnePlus 5 and Huawei P10.

The iPhone X scores 4,095 on single core tests and tops 9,959 on the multi-core ones. That’s double the speed of anything Android has to offer on both tests.

To compare:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8: 2,204 single, 6,279 multi
  • OnePlus 5: 1,932 single, 6,495 multi
  • Huawei P10: 1,865 single, 5,973 multi

This isn’t the first time Apple’s A-series SoCs have scorched the benchmarks. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 have also topped the charts in their generation. And convincingly too.

The core of the iPhone X’s industry-leading performance is the new Apple-designed A11 Bionic chip. The chip is a 6-core unit with two high performance cores and four high efficiency cores. Apple says the new chip is 20% faster than the A10 Fusion in high performance tasks, and 70% faster in high-efficiency tasks.

Additionally, it has a new Apple-designed multi-core GPU that’s 30% faster than the A10 Fusion, while using half the power.

More powerful than a MacBook Pro?

What’s shocking is that the iPhone X’s performance surpasses even the iPad Pro 10.5-inch, MacBook Air (2017) and MacBook Pro 13-inch (2017) Core i5! Results as below:

  • iPad Pro 10.5-inch: 3,558 single, 9,133 multi
  • MacBook Air (2017): 3,216 single, 5,935 multi
  • MacBook Pro 13-inch (2017): 4,342 single, 9,194 multi

Benchmarks aren’t everything of course, but it’s interesting to know just how powerful Apple’s new mobile chip is. Having said that, it’s amazing how powerful a smartphone can be these days, eh?
