The iPhone X Can Outperform the latest MacBook Pro Dylan Duarte September 14, 2017 News Bigger isn’t always better, as evidenced by Apple’s upcoming tenth-anniversary iPhone X. The hotly-anticipated handset is powered by an A11 Bionic processor, and the six-core 10nm chip not only makes it the most powerful smartphone on the market, but it outdoes some of Apple’s own MacBook Pros from 2017. That’s this year, in case you haven’t looked at a calendar in some time. Technical jargon incoming. You’ve been warned. When compared to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the MacBook outperforms the iPhone X when it comes to single-core tasks, with iPhone X single-core tests going up to 4274 while the MacBook Pro achieves 4592. It’s flipped in multi-core tasks, however, with the iPhone X’s 10438 beating the MacBook’s 9602. Both of the iPhone X’s scores are better than those of the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, too, which only has an A10X chip inside. A desktop CPU still has a number of advantages over a smartphone, of course, but the sheer power on display with the A11 Bionic is insanely impressive. Qualcomm certainly has some catching up to do, which means Android is at a disadvantage. Last year’s iPhone 7 Plus outperforms this year’s Galaxy Note 8. The iPhone X and the iPhone 8 handsets all use the A11 Bionic processor. Share This With The World!
