Alleged iPhone 11 Benchmark Leak Suggests Faster 6-Core CPU, 1GB Extra RAM

With Apple’s next iPhone event just a week away, new details have emerged from Geekbench showing the CPU statistics for the iPhone XR successor.

The test suggested that the new iPhone is around 12 percent faster than the 2018 equivalent for single-core tasks, but the multi-core performance is basically the same as last year’s, a new report from MacRumors noted.

The alleged single-core score of the upcoming iPhone? 11 (successor to the iPhone XR) is 5,415, a marked improvement over the average score of single-core score of 4,796 for the iPhone XR with the A12 Bionic. The iPhone 11’s multi-core score of 11,294, although, is highly similar to the average score of 11,192 of the XR with the A12 Bionic.

And although the freshly spotted “iPhone 12,1” benchmark doesn’t explicitly mention the Apple A13 processor by name, it’s pretty obvious we’re looking at something different than the A12 powering the XR. Something with a similar 6-core CPU arrangement, but an improved 2.66 GHz clock speed for the two high-performance cores (compared to the XR’s 2.49 GHz).

It also said that the XR successor will have 1GB additional RAM, bringing it to a total of 4GB, bringing it in line with last year’s iPhone XS and XS Max. We don’t know if Apple plans to bump up the RAM of the rumoured iPhone 11 Pro as a result.

Apple’s new iPhone 11 will be announced alongside the so-called iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max next Tuesday, September 10th, and preorders are expected to go live a few days later on September 13th. Then, if all goes according to plan, all three phones should be released a week later on Friday, September 20th.
