What you need to know
- Apple was not lying when it called the iPhone 11's A13 Bionic chip the most powerful chip in a smartphone ever.
- And that was the iPhone XS, it performed almost three times better than the OnePlus 7 Pro with the Snapdragon 855 chip.
When Apple took the stage to unveil the iPhone 11, it made some very lofty claims. Among the most eye raising things it said concerned the new A13 Bionic chip. It asserted it was 20% faster than the already impressive A12 Bionic and called it the most powerful chip in a smartphone ever.
Turns out it wasn't just all hype. The claim has now been verified.
Even more comical is that it is nearly three times as fast as the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chip which earned a 64 score. It shows the gaping discrepancy between Apple's silicon and the silicon from the main Android smartphone chip provider.
Just for kicks, it also easily destroyed the performance you see from Apple's 10-core iMac Pro by 20%.
Needless to say, the A13 Bionic chip powering the iPhone 11 is insanely powerful. This not only bodes well right now but also for the longevity of its lifespan. It should still be a top performer for years to come.
