The “Bionic” part in the name of Apple’s A11 Bionic chip isn’t just marketing speak. It’s the most powerful processor ever put in a any phone.

“To put it simply, the iPhone 8 line has a MacBook Pro Intel-level processor inside,” Mark Spoonauer wrote on is article. Here’s an interesting excerpt from his article:
The Bionic part in the name of Apple’s A11 Bionic chip isn’t just marketing speak. It’s the most powerful processor ever put in a mobile phone. We’ve put this chip to the test in both synthetic benchmarks and some real-world speed trials, and it obliterates every Android phone we tested.
According to them, the Android wasn’t even close. The Note 8 scored 6,564, and that’s with an impressive 6GB of RAM paired with Qualcomm’s fast Snapdragon 835 processor. How about the OnePlus 5 and its 8GB of RAM and Snapdragon 835? That handset got 6,542. With 4GB of RAM, the Galaxy S8 scored 6,295 with the same processor.
In the 3D-Mark graphics benchmark, Apple’s iPhone hit an off-the-charts score of 62,212 (iPhone 8 Plus: 64,412) versus Note 8’s 39,834 and OnePlus 5’s 39,576. iPhone 8 even beats the 13-inch MacBook Pro with a seventh-generation Intel Core i5 processor.
That’s some task and iPhone 8 finished it in just 42 seconds. By comparison, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 took more than 3 minutes and Galaxy S8 Plus took more than 4 minutes. In other words, iPhone 8 was more than 4 times as fast in this particular CPU intensive task than Samsung’s phones and this tells you how fast the A11 Bionic is in real-life use.
The iPhone 8 also opened more demanding apps faster than its predecessor and the top Android phone right now, although those differences were less dramatic. It took the iPhone 8 11 seconds to fully load the Injustice 2 game, compared to 14.53 seconds for the iPhone 7 Plus and 19 seconds for the Note 8.
One crucial piece of information was omitted: the app Tom’s Guide used to test 4K video exporting on both platforms. Having a video editing app highly optimized for a target mobile platform that uses the best available APIs and GPU-assisted video encoding can make a world of difference so bear that in mind.
Apple claims the 2 performance cores achieve 25 % faster performance over the Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, with as much as a 70 % speed boost for the low-power cores.
The chip also includes Apple’s first in-house deigned mobile GPU offering 30 percent faster graphics and provides a dedicated neural engine and other specialized sections to accelerate tasks like machine-learning, computer vision, AI and more.
