Apple A11 Bionic vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 845

Apple A11 Bionic

► remove

The Apple A11 Bionic is a System on a Chip (SoC) from Apple that is found in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. It was announced late 2017 and offers 6 cores divided in 2 performance cores and four power efficiency cores. In comparison to the A10X all 6 cores can be used at once, leading to a much higher theoretical performance. In our benchmarks the SoC however is not only faster in multi threaded tests (+77% versus A10 Fusion in Geekbench), but also in single threaded tests (+19%). Apple states 25% more performance compared to the A10 in the iPhone 7.

With 4.3 Billion transistors, the A11 Bionic is a rather big chip especially compared to the Snapdragon 835 (3 Billion) or a Skylake desktop quad-core Soc (1.75 Billion).

Qualcomm Snapdragon 845

► remove

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform (or SD845) is a high-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in early 2018 and manufactured in 10 nm LPP FinFET at TSMC. Integrates 4x Kryo 385 cores (Cortex-A75) at up to 2.8 GHz (max) for performance and 4x Kryo 385 at 1.8 GHz (max) for efficiency. Furthermore offers an X20 LTE modem (Cat. 18 1.2 Gbps downlink, Cat 13 150 Mbps uplink), ac-WiFi and a dual-channel 32-Bit 1866 MHz LPDDR4x memory controller.
