iPhone X’s A11 crushes top Android competition in Geekbench

The iPhone X did another quick run of Geekbench to solidify itself as the fastest smartphone around.

Apple’s upcoming flagship scored even more than it did last time and trounces all the top smartphones around. Granted benchmarks aren’t great at making cross-platform comparisons, but the difference is still impressive.

The A11 Bionic chipset has nearly doubled the single-core score of the A10 Fusion, which was already ahead of the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 Octa. Interestingly the A11 Bionic has the highest multi-core score, a first for an Apple chip.

Apple’s A11 Bionic has a six-core processor with two high-powered cores and four power-efficient ones. But where it differs the most from its A10 Fusion predecessor is in its ability to run all six cores simultaneously – the A10 Fusion could only run one cluster at a time – either the fast or the efficient cores.

The iPhone X also has 3GB of RAM – the same as the iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus and more than the 2GB iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 – more than enough for a smooth experience on iOS.
