With an all-new four-core design, the A10 Fusion chip's CPU has two high‑performance cores and two high‑efficiency cores. The high‑performance cores can run at up to 2x the speed of iPhone 6, while the high‑efficiency cores are capable of running at just one-fifth the power of the high‑performance cores. That means you get the best performance and efficiency when you need it.
Daring Fireball's John Gruber notes that the A10 Fusion's performance is so impressive that the iPhone 7 benchmarks higher than any MacBook Air ever made!
The fastest MacBook Air (11-inch Early 2015) benchmarks at an average score of 3236 for single-core performance, slightly less than the iPhone 7's single-core score of 3261.
The iPhone 7's performance looks even better when up against its competitors. The closest rival is the Samsung Galaxy S7 with a score of just 1806, followed by the Galaxy Note 7 at 1786, and the S7 Edge at 1744.
With its well optimized mobile operating system, users are likely to see some tremendous performance advantages in the real world. We'll take a closer look at the iPhone 7's processing power once it is released tomorrow!
