Apple A11 Bionic:
Over the last few years, Apple is leading in the smartphones chipsets market, but in 2022 the company went so far with the record-breaking new chipsets. We’ve seen some amazing chipsets like Apple A14, Apple A15 that made into the Top 5 the AnTuTu 9 benchmarks, and Apple A14 that was launched in Apple iPhone 12 Series smartphones. Let’s start with the benchmarks.
Apple A11 Bionic shows the best AnTuTu 9 scores. We can see the big jump in the GPU performance. The total performance of the GPU is 127124, which is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The CPU also shows one of the best scores. It is 119206 which is also faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The memory scores also show a significant boost. A11 Bionic memory is slower than Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The memory scores are 54151. The Ux is also showing one of the best performances. It is 82801 which is slower than Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. Total scores are above 385397. The total scores of this chipset will depend on which smartphone is using this chipset with which type of ram. Apple A11 Bionic is considerably gaining a performance boost and beating the last-gen A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone category. This processor can be seen in iPhone 8 Series. In the Flagship segment, it’s the best processor for gaming, camera, battery, display, and everything.
The single-core scores show the best performance in this smartphone mid-range category lineup. The single-core scores are 928. And the multi-core scores are 2351 which is also beating every chipset in the multi-core performance in this range. iPhone is known for its CPU performance. Even if it’s an old chipset but it’s still fast enough to beat some of the latest chipsets.
|Architecture||2x 2.39 GHz – Monsoon
4x 1.42 GHz – Mistral
|L1 cache||64 KB|
|L2 cache||8 MB|
|Transistor count||4.3 billion|
Apple A11 Bionic launched with the two big cores of Monsoon which are ultra-high performance cores that are clocked on 2.49GHz. The other 4 cores are based on Mistral which is a power efficiency core. The Monsoon also has the best speeds and good set instruction architecture. There is a total of 6 cores with a boost clock of 2.49GHz. Apple A11 Bionic has the latest set of instruction architecture. It is considerably fast and strong enough to beat some of the latest and most powerful Chipsets. A11 Bionic is fabricated on 10Nm. This means Apple A11 Bionic will be power efficient and will consume less battery and will produce less heat. It is fast with the big two Monsoon. It is also L2 cache is also 8MB which is a lot faster than the other processor on the market right now. The TDP is 6Watts which means the processor will be best with the battery management. In this Apple A11 Bionic, the CPU performance is very fast and very efficient. There is 4.3 Billion transistors in this Apple A11 Bionic which is more than enough for a mobile chipset. This processor has incredible speeds and good optimization.
|GPU name||Apple GPU|
Apple GPU is the new architecture that they are using in the Apple A11 Bionic. The GPU is also manufactured using the 10Nm technology. Which means it will also be power efficient. The name of the GPU is Apple A11 Bionic GPU. This is the fastest GPU in this lineup. The Apple A11 Bionic is fast enough to handle games like FREE FIRE, and PUBG MOBILE. The GPU score is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which means there will be a smooth gaming experience on this chipset.
|Memory frequency||1866 MHz|
|Bus||2x 16 Bit|
|Max bandwidth||14.9 Gbit/s|
|Max size||3 GB|
Apple A11 Bionic uses the new LPDDR4x ram with the memory frequency of 2133MHz and uses the bus of 1×64 bit. The ram size may change according to the smartphones. The memory frequency is also going to be changed according to smartphones. The max memory bandwidth is 14.9Gbit/s which is also faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G and Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G. The max memory size is 12GB. This chipset cannot support more ram than the size of 12GB.
|Neural processor (NPU)||Neural Engine|
|Max display resolution||2436 x 1125|
|Max camera resolution||2x 12MP|
|Video capture||4K at 60FPS|
|Video playback||4K at 60FPS|
Apple A11 Bionic uses its own Neural Engine which is fast with AI calculations and can be used to accelerate video analysis, voice recognition, and image processing. A11 Bionic uses the NVMe which is fast. This gives you fast read and writing speeds.
Apple A11 Bionic has the maximum display support of QuadHD+ and can support the 60Hz refresh rate with the Super Amoled. The video capture is kept on 4k at 60FPS and the video playback is also 4k at 60FPS. There is no 8k support on this Apple A11 Bionic. It is a bit of a shame to see there is no 8k support on a 2019 Flagship processor.
Apple A11 Bionic has 5G support. The Apple A11 Bionic also comes with the Wi-Fi 5 and the Bluetooth version of 5.0. This will give you better signals and better speeds. Apple A11 Bionic uses its own modem. It is not fast as the X65 but it gives you good speeds.
Phones with A11 Bionic:
|Phones with A11 Bionic||AnTuTu v9|
|1. Apple iPhone 8 Plus||401698|
|2. Apple iPhone X||365822|
|3. Apple iPhone 8||359392|
Apple A11 Bionic is launched in these 3 smartphones. As you can see these 3 smartphone scores are different. IPhone 8 Plus is at the top. Which is a considerably great phone with this chipset. The Apple iPhone 12 pro is a good smartphone for pretty much everything for gaming, for the camera, for normal use, and its packet with amazing features.
The gaming experience on this chipset is going to be faster than the Apple A11 Bionic. This chipset is combined with the 2 Big Monsoon cores and which boosts the performance. With 2 Big Monsoon, there is going to be a little issue of overheating. The frequency of this chipset is 2.49GHz, which is good for long-term gaming. This chipset also supports the LPDDR4x ram. This means there will be no issues with using this chipset in a long-term gaming session. This chipset also supports a 60Hz refresh rate. This will help in smooth performance with low latency. This chipset is can play PUBG MOBILE at 60FPS, and other games at high FPS as well, this is because of the GPU.
