If you are waiting for the iPhone 7 that will be unveiled on September 7, we have good news for you as the new Apple A10 chip inside the iPhone 7 is truly a beast according to the latest Geekbench results. In case you have been paying attention, you probably know that we have already seen a screenshot of the iPhone running through Geekbench version 3 in July. The difference between that previous result and this one is encouraging as the upcoming iPhone seems to have gained almost 10% more in terms of performance in the latest results. However, since this is Geekbench version 4 that the latest result is showcasing, the difference cannot be exactly credited as a 10% boost over the previous result as that data was based on Geekbench 3.
The single-core score is a whopping 3379, while the multi-core score is an impressive 5495 and irrespective of the benchmark's version that's quite remarkable. If you are wondering how these scores fare against Android flagship devices like the "explosive" Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the scores are quite competitive and even better at times. The Note 7 SD 820 version had scored around 1900 and 5500 for the single-core and multi-core respectively, while the Note 7 Exynos 8890 version had scored around 2081 and 6500 for the single-core and multi-core respectively. As you can see, the competition is close when it comes to the multi-core performance, but the A10 chip wins comfortably when it comes to single core performance.
