The Apple A10 Fusion chip is something new you’ll find on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that will help the devices power through console-grade games with haptic feedback and be more power-efficient to be the long-lasting iPhones in the series’ history.

The 64-bit architecture gets four cores to work with — two workhorses that are 40 percent faster than the A9 and two “high-efficency” cores that run at 20 percent of the power of the main cores. Apple notes that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will run 120 times faster than the original iPhone — though with growing content and workloads. Apple has designed a performance controller chip.

A six-core GPU cranks images and graphics out 50 percent faster than last year’s iPhone. Console-grade graphics engines are being used to craft games for the iPhone 7 to take advantage of this.

Battery life, as a result of optimizations, will be the longest of the iPhone line. Average use cycles will be 2 hours longer than iPhone 6s and even the iPhone 7 will last an hour longer than the iPhone 6s Plus.
