Alleged iPhone 7’s A10 GeekBench Score Suggests It is 35% faster than iPhone 6s

Alleged GeekBench CPU scores posted back in the summer suggested modest performance gains for the iPhone 7’s A10 chip versus the iPad Pro’s A9X processor, but were debunked as fake soon after.

The leaked benchmark scores — 3379 for single core and 5495 for multi-core — suggest that the iPhone 7 will be up to 35% faster than the iPhone 6s, which scores 2392 in the single core benchmark and 4031 in the multi-core benchmark. These scores are also higher than what the iPad Pro score in the benchmark suite with their beastly A9X chipset.

The model in question is allegedly the iPhone 7 and not the iPhone 7 Plus since it comes with 2GB RAM. The GeekBench listing shows the A10 chip inside the iPhone 7 being clocked at 400MHz, but since iOS does not reveal such intricate details of the chip, the clock speed is being guessed by the benchmarking app.

If the GeekBench scores are anything to go by, it looks like the A10 chip inside the iPhone 7 is going to offer a huge performance upgrade over the already beastly A9 chip inside the iPhone 6s.

This isn’t surprising as Apple in the past few years has been developing “point” updates in parallel with major releases so it goes without saying that they’re already finishing up iOS 10.1, working on iOS 10.2 and thinking about iOS 10.3.
