How powerful will the A11 chip of the future iPhone 8 be?

Soon it will be the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and Apple wants to celebrate it all over. That is why now there are so many rumors that talk about the iPhone 8 and the technology that this will incorporate. It is expected that Apple will make a significant increase in its terminals in terms of speed and technology , as currently the Korean company Samsung leads the way in this subject.

The technological advances that Apple is going to incorporate into the iPhone 8 (which is probably already in production), are just as we are accustomed to. Although really and according to the rumors, it will not incorporate any impressive news, the iPhone 8 could have perfected both the screen and the fingerprint reader , making these have nothing to envy to those that incorporates the great Samsung Galaxy S8.

What will allow us to make this new processor compared to the previous one?

Although we do not know much about the new A11 processor, we know that the processor of the new iPad Pro (A10X) in some benchmark tests gives better results than the MacBook Pro.

Macbook Pro 2017 Intel i5465026353
Macbook Pro 2016 Intel i5441727631

What we can assure is that the new A11 processor is currently being manufactured by TSMC. This same company has ensured that these processors are produced to be used in the new iPhone 8 , which may clarify a bit the doubts about whether an iPhone 7s would appear or jump directly to 8.

TSMC says that the new processor of the mark of the apple, will have a technology of 10 nanometers, which will cause that the speed of this one is at least 20% faster than in the previous generation of iPhones . Therefore, we can trust that these new A11 chips will bring us even more speed in our Apple devices.

Can we expect the new A11 processor to compete with a computer processor?

Hardly a mobile processor can get to exceed the performance of a desktop chip. But as we saw with the iPad Pro, we can expect that if the A11X version is released, it can even replace Intel processors in MacBooks because of its potential.

Anyway, Apple will probably have no problems leaving Intel and using its own processors. This action would help a lot in the integration of the software with the hardware in the computers of Apple, just as iPhones work great with few resources, thanks to its optimization and integration.
