After tons of leaks and speculations, Apple has finally taken the veil off the new Apple products. Amongst its fleet of new products, including the new iPhones, the Watch Series 3, and a refreshment of the Apple TV, the US-based company also unveiled a major product — the Apple A11 Bionic processor.
The A11 Bionic chipset will power the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and the iPhone X and is an apt successor to the A10 Fusion found on the older iPhones.
It’s also touted to be the most powerful processor that Apple has built, as touted by Phil Schiller, and is also the most powerful that any smartphone has seen till date.
Here are the coolest features of the new Apple A11 Bionic.
1. Faster and Better
The Apple A11 Bionic chipset is a six-core processor with 4.3 billion transistors. It’s made up of two high-performance cores which are 25% faster than the older A10.
It also includes four high-efficiency cores that are 70% faster.
2. Better Performance Manager
The Apple A11 Bionic chipset comes with a new performance manager which results in 70% faster multi-thread workloads. As touted by Apple at the launch event, the A11’s second generation performance manager can use all the six cores at once if and when needed.
As you might already know, performance managers switch to higher efficiency cores when the phone is performing low-intensity functions and switches back to high-performance cores during intensive gaming sessions.
3. First GPU Designed By Apple
The new Apple designed GPU is 30% faster than the A10 chip and gives the same performance as the older A10 using half the power.
4. New Image Processor
The A11 Bionic chipset also boasts of a new image processor with faster low light autofocus and an improved pixel processor.
Plus, it also comes with a hardware noise reduction feature. This new chip will go a long way in improving the already improved pictures captured through the lens of Apple iPhones.
Also, with faster low light autofocus in tow, it would be interesting to see this powerful processor in works.
