A recent report from well known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that Apple’s upcoming A10 chipset that will most probably be powering iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus could be clocked as high as 2.4GHz. Now an alleged Geekbench benchmark score of iPhone 7’s A10 chipset has made its way into the wild.
The leaked benchmark scores of alleged A10 chipset suggest a 35% performance increase over the current iPhone 6s. The alleged iPhone 7 benchmark reveals 3379 scores for single core and 5497 for multicore while the iPhone 6s scores 2392 in the single core and 4031 in the multicore benchmark. The alleged iPhone 7 benchmark scores are even higher than the iPad Pro that is powered by the beastly A9X chipset.
The model used in these alleged benchmark scores seems to be the iPhone 7 since it reportedly will come with 2GB of RAM module. The GeekBench results show that the iPhone 7 chipset is clocked at 400GHz, which is very odd. But there is an explanation that iOS does not reveal such details, so the benchmarking application is making a guess about the clock speed.
If these alleged iPhone 7 Geekbech scores are anything to go by, it looks like Apple’s next-generation iPhone models are going to offer a huge upgrade over the current beastly A9 chipset that powers iPhone 6s. If other power hungry rumored features such as 4K video @60FPS, refocusing anywhere after taking the picture, and dual-lens camera setup are meant to debut with iPhone 7, the A10 chipset with the said performance will surely be the key in providing a smooth experience.
