The A10 SoC, which will ship with the iPhone 7, will allegedly be 18% faster than the A9 chip in the iPhone 6s, according to a new report from Techtastic.

The site claims that a source has revealed preliminary Geekbench scores for the processor of 3000 points, about the same as the A9X found in the iPad Pro.

The benchmark app Geekbench 3 A10 able to achieve a single-core of more than 3,000 items, about the same amount as the Apple A9X, which under the hood of the iPad Pro 9.7 and 12.9 can be found. Apple A9 of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus usually scores around 2500 points, which equates to a performance increase of about 18%.

The report also notes that while preliminary benchmarks of the A9 versus A8 chip showed a similar increase, the final result was much higher at around 43%.

Apple has been bamboozling Apple guys for years. Of course the iPhone 7 chip is better than the 6s. I hope so!!! It Should be. Just like when they say during their WWDC event that this iPhone is faster then the previous and a loud roar fills the room. Yet they always compare it to the first iPhone, lmfao. They say and iPhone 6s is 50X faster then the original. No phucking Shit!!!! Comparing a 2015 iPhone with a 2007 version. Yet the apple guys fall for it. Question?.....how come apple NEVER talks about Rams on their iPhone? I'll let you guys figure it out. I'm still iPhone for life but just need to throw it in and let them k ow we aren't dumb.

What exactly is the point of your post? Any luxury or main stream consumer good is generally incrementally improved every year or launch cycle. So while it is welcome news, it is also expected and there is no reason to admonish it, is there?bas far a comparisons, it is also completely normal to benchmark against a previous version and or the original version. It's a great way for the layman to compare and track improvement in a practical sense. But alas, if you really want Rams on your phone, they're my favourite NFL team as well and the Los Angeles Rams app is available in the App Store. Download it today for news, updates, and more!

The A10 used is UNDERCLOCKED. So when the release version finally comes out, it will be even faster.

18% power increase is not too appealing.... I know 1st world problems, but I feel like my phone hick ups a few times during the day when multitasking heavily. It's not too bad, but if I am in a hurry then it can become very annoying

That's hog wash. Nothing is set in stone its much higher than that. 25% is more like it.
