“An alleged iPhone 11 Pro with 4GB RAM and A13 Bionic chipset was listed on the benchmarking website”
Apple’s latest iPhone 11 smartphones are powered by the A13 Bionic chipset, which features six cores and is manufactured using an advanced 7nm+ process. The company boasted about the chipset during the launch event and even called it the most powerful processor in any smartphone. Apple chipsets have always had an edge over Qualcomm’s Snapdragon counterparts, and that trend continues with the new A13 Bionic chip. An alleged iPhone 11 Pro has appeared on Geekbench website with a score that blows the competition out of the water.
All three 2019 iPhone variants are equipped with the A13 Bionic chipset. Apart from improved performance, Apple also announced that users can now expect up to 5 hours of additional battery life with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and 4 hours with the iPhone 11 Pro. The iPhone 11 Pro listed on Geekbench is running iOS 13 and has 4GB RAM. Apple usually includes less RAM on its phones because iOS doesn’t really need a lot of RAM to function. However, the Geekbench benchmark test is a CPU test, and doesn’t really take the RAM into account.
The iPhone 11 Pro performed exceptionally well and destroyed all Android smartphones in terms of benchmarks. In the single-core performance benchmark, the phone scored 5,472 points. That’s way ahead of any Android flagship smartphone, including the overclocked ASUS ROG Phone 2 Ultimate Edition that uses the Snapdragon 855+ chipset. It is also much faster than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ running Exynos 9825 processor. The multi-core performance scores are also much higher compared to the competition, with the iPhone 11 Pro getting a 13,769 score.
Apple iPhone’s have always had great performance when it comes to app launches, gaming, etc. The A13 Bionic is currently the best from the company and it will continue to beat Android flagships for sometime. However, when it comes to multi-tasking and keeping apps in memory, the iPhone won’t be as good as Android flagships that feature 6GB or more RAM. Phones require additional RAM so that they can keep apps in memory. This way, you can go back to an app and it wouldn’t have to restart.
