The next-gen Apple A11X chip is expected to bring a slew of important improvements to the 2018 iPad Pro lineup, octa-core CPU included.
The Chinese social platform plays host to a post about the A11 chipset and the boastful claim that it will outdo all other chips for at least a year.
Both the Kirin 970 for the Huawei Mate 10 and the Apple A11 for the fall's new iPhones are being made with 10nm fabrications.
When have you heard of an Android phone topping an iPhone for a benchmark? Rarely, if ever at all. And HTC somehow managed to do it.
One of the reasons Apple needed so much time to launch the long-rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro is likely this super-small TSMC-made A10X SoC.
The A10X Fusion chipset inside the new iPad Pro models cooks. It destroys the A9X on single-core and multi-core Geekbench tests.
Still hoping to see the next-gen 10.5 (or 10.9) and 12.9-inch iPad Pro unveiled and maybe even released in March? That's probably not happening.
Longtime Apple partner TSMC is reportedly having trouble ramping up 10nm chip production, possibly leading to 2017 iPad upgrade delays.
The Apple A10X processor likely to power next spring's iPad Pros is predictably faster than the A10 inside the iPhone 7, a leaked benchmark shows.
