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.

As far as SoCs go, Apple is incredibly far ahead of Qualcomm and Samsung. These companies have some serious soul-searching to do.

I can't wait for AnandTech to dive into the A11 Bionic, so we can get some more details than just people comparing GeekBench scores.

They are just collecting benchmark points for "special" CPU instructions for Artificial intelligence (deep learning) ie something like MMX or SSE in Intel compatible CPUs. It has nothing to do with real life... they just cheating. It is what GPU does without it's 3D part (vector and matrix operations). It's expensive to ask GPU chipmakers to create/support this extensions so Google, IBM and others did own "bionic" chips. You may do faster image/video/sound analyzing with it. It's like special CPU instructions for cryptography few years ago.
