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.

Yeah, but is this only ever going to be in a phone? I think its obviously going to be in the next iPad. Now is it over kill in the ipad? Well, apparently some people like Thom are starting to use it instead of a notebook. So a chip as powerfull as a notebook inside a notebook replacement, doesn't sound as crazy.

Also, worth keeping in mind the future direction of phones that Apple has in mind things like Augmented Realtiy. That will burn through some cpu/gpu cycles, i think.
