iPhone 8 Outperforms iPhone X in Early Geekbench Tests [Photos]
iPhone 8 has surprisingly outperformed the iPhone X in recent Geekbench tests comprising the Single Core, Multi-Core and Metal benchmarks. The iPhone 8 Plus also seems to be marginally faster than the iPhone X in both Single Core and Multi-Core tests. This is despite all the three smartphones featuring the same A11 Bionic chip.
Single Core Benchmark
The Single Core test is topped by the iPhone 8 with 4195 points and followed by the iPhone 8 Plus with 4128 points. Meanwhile, the iPhone X takes the third spot in the Single Core test with a lower score of 4028 points.
Effectively, the iPhone 8 scores 26 percent more than the iPhone 7 in the Single Core test.
Moving on to the multi-core benchmark, the iPhone 8 once again takes the pole position with 10005 points while the iPhone 8 Plus finishes second with 9829 points. iPhone X once again falls behind the two iPhone 7 successors with just 9287 points.
One can easily notice the massive multi-core performance boost on the iPhone 8 in contrast to its predecessor. In other words, iPhone 8 scores 80 percent higher than the iPhone 7 whose score is 5545 points.
Folks at Geekbench have also compared the performance of all the newly launched devices, including the three iPhones and the iPad Pros, in the recent Metal benchmark.
Unlike the other two benchmarks, the iPhone 8 falls behind Apple's latest iPad Pros with a score of 15624. On the contrary, iPhone X nudges ahead of the iPhone 8 Plus with 15540 points while the latter scores just 15520 points.
Although the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are already up for pre-orders, prospective iPhone X buyers will have to wait until October 27 to pre-order the device.
