The iPhone 11 has been presented as the most powerful smartphones on the market during the official presentation that took place a few days ago and according to GeekBench test this statement appears to have merit.
Still, different tests can reveal some limitations and the new AnTuTu tests confirm the fact that there are smartphones on the market that can reach higher scores and it appears that the difference between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro is smaller than we expected.
AnTuTu has released the score of the iPhone 11 smartphones. They are – indeed – some of the most powerful smartphones on the market surpassing all “mainstream” devices, but still some gaming smartphones can reach higher scores. The Apple A13 Bionic chipset is very powerful when talking about raw processing power but also 3D graphics, however most likely the chipset is backed by a limited cooling system.
The iPhone 12,1 model – precisely the iPhone 11 in the basic version with 4 GB of RAM memory and 256 GB storage reached the score of 456,655 in AnTuTu, more than the score of the OnePlus 7 Pro, Red Magic 3 and other top phones. It is however surpassed by the ROG Phone 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro from Xiaomi, as they score 469,000 points.
The iPhone 11 Pro standard version appears to also come with 4 GB RAM and it scores a bit lower, 455,452 points. The iPhone 11 Pro Max was the only new iPhone model to reach the 462,098 score.
Rumors talked about a RAM memory difference between the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 pro, as many of the online leaks before the official release suggested the Pro version is going to pack 6 GB of RAM memory under the hood but Apple has not upgraded the RAM memory compared to the last year’s iPhone, as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max also came with 4 GB of RAM memory.
Compared to the XR, the iPhone 11 gets a 33% RAM upgrade, the previous model being released with 3 GB, just like the iPhone X model that was released two years ago.
Compared to the iPhone XS models released last year, the new iPhone 11 models pack 28% improved performance, an impressive year to year performance especially when considering the fact that the architecture is still 7nm, even if the manufacturer used a less modern manufacturing process ( EUV ). Also, the energy requirements have been reduced, the new iPhone 11 using improved architecture and bigger batteries in order to deliver better autonomy.
The A12X chipset released last year, used for the iPad Pro tablet, is more powerful. This may change soon because Apple might prepare a new release event in the next following weeks to upgrade the hardware platform of this series. An A13X Bionic version might be even more powerful than the processors of the MacBook Pro laptops.
