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 find it difficult to believe that Apple has a higher IPC than Intel. Are there benchmarks of real applications doing the same thing on both platforms where you can see this?

The tests don't perform anything remotely similar on different platforms. You can't even compare Android and iOS numbers. The numbers are only usable within a specific platform.
