Early benchmarks show Apple's A11 Bionic chip to be as fast as a 13-inch MacBook Pro

Apple's new iPhone X and iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be powered by the company's new A11 Bionic processor.

It consists of two performance cores, four high-efficiency cores, a 2nd-generation Apple-designed performance controller, and an Apple-designed GPU.

Apple says it is a beast and early benchmark numbers seem to back this claim up.

Uploaded Geekbench scores show the A11 Bionic processor to handily outperform the already super fast A10X Fusion chip found in the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

The A11 Bionic averaged single-core scores of 4169 and multi-core scores of 9836

This compares favorably against the A10 Fusion chip's scores of 3887 and 9210 respectively.

Even more impressive is that Apple's most powerful dual-core MacBook Pro averaged scores of 4592 and 9602 respectively, which suggests that the new A11 Bionic chip is better at multi-core tasks and comes really close at single-core tasks.

The A11 Bionic chip is also considerably faster than even the fastest and latest Android phones. Powered by the Exynos 8895, the Samsung Galaxy S8+ has average single-core scores of 2021 and average multi-core scores of 6387. 

Google Pixel and its Snapdragon 821 processor? 1656 and 4278. 

It is still early days, but it looks like Apple has another class-leading processor in its hands.
