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.

I think the previous poster is referring to single core performance, in which Apple's case if fantastic.

The ones pushing hard for GPU-acceleration were NVIDIA, initially. But now just about any mobile SoC/OS combination does a lot of heavy lifting on the app specific IPs, not just the core.
