iPhone 8 allegedly runs Geekbench, destroys the competition


While it may arrive later than you'd want, the iPhone 8 is shaping up to be a beast when it comes to the raw performance of its chipset. Today a leaked screenshot surfaced in China purporting to depict the results obtained by the iPhone 8 after running GeekbenchGeekbench is a cross-platform processor benchmark, with a scoring system that separates single-core and multi-core performance, and workloads that simulate real-world scenarios. The current version, Geekbench 4, uses scores that are calculated against a baseline score of 4000, which represents the performance of an Intel Core i7-6600U @ 2.60 GHz. 4.0.

You can see that screenshot to the left, and if you're a benchmark fanatic you already know what those numbers mean: the iPhone 8 has absolutely destroyed the competition.

Let's take them one by one. Its single-core score of 4,537 is 30% better than what the iPhone 7 was able to achieve. What about the AndroidAndroid is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Androids user interface is mainly based on direct manipulation, using touch gestures that loosely correspond to real-world actions, such as swiping, tapping and pinching, to manipulate on-screen objects, along with a virtual keyboard for text input. In addition to touchscreen devices, Google has further developed Android TV for televisions, Android Auto for cars, and Android Wear for wrist watches, each with a specialized user interface. Variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, and other electronics. competition, you ask? Well, the closest any of those has come is Samsung's Galaxy S8 with 1,945 (that's not a typo). So the iPhone 8's performance is more than twice as good in this metric.

The iPhone 8's multi-core score is 8,975, which is 58% better than its predecessor's. The AndroidAndroid is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Variants of Android are also used on notebooks, game consoles, digital cameras, and other electronics. device that's scored the best here so far is the Galaxy S8+ with 6,338. That means the next iPhone performs 41% better than its most important Android-based competitor.

Of course it should be noted that benchmarks aren't necessarily indicative of real-world experience, at least not fully. So don't take this to mean that the iPhone 8 will automatically be that much better than the S8 duo in day-to-day tasks. However, these results prove that Apple's focus on creating the most powerful mobile chipsets hasn't taken a hit over the past year or so, while developing the iPhone 8.

An important mention is that it's not impossible to fake such a screenshot - it's very easy in fact. So by all means, don't take any of this for granted.

Anyway, if we do choose to believe the leaked image, then also note that the iPhone 8 will come with a screen resolution of 2,800x1,242, which makes for an incredibly odd 20.2:9 or 2.25:1 aspect ratio. And yes, that's even taller than the 18.5:9 Samsung went with for its S8.

The A11 chipset that powers the new model has a 2.74 GHz quad-core CPU,CPU is the abbreviation for central processing unit. Sometimes referred to as the central processor, but more commonly called processor. A processor is the logic circuitry that responds to and processes the basic instructions that drive a smartphone. The four primary functions of a processor are fetch, decode, execute and writeback. and 128KB of L1 cache.L1 and L2 are levels of cache memory in a computer. If the computer processor can find the data it needs for its next operation in cache memory, it will save time compared to having to get it from random access memory. L1 is "level-1" cache memory, usually built onto the microprocessor chip itself. For example, the Intel MMX microprocessor comes with 32 thousand bytes of L1. The iPhone 7's A10 Fusion only goes up to 2.34 GHz, so some of the performance differences between these are coming from the fact that the clock speed has been increased by 17%.
