Regardless your benchmark tests are so different from others, so where did you get these figures from? Other reputable sites have different results. Regardless, Apple I-phones always seem to be faster but when the real test comes in, like opening up a web page or even some files, they are much slower than Android and I know because I have both phones.
How do you test the video render? Those timings are faster than my PC. My PC takes double the time of the final video, here it seems to take a third of that time. Could we get a little more information on the methodology used?
Gregzeng, are you (and I am sorry) an idiot? This freaking video is outdated. Apple A11 is not referenced in this video, as well as Snapdragon 835 which is in S8 Note, for instance. Right now, A11 beats the hell out of the latest intel core i5 chip.
Would be nice to see what this means for x86/CISC processors and how they compare. I get that sustain operations argument, but that's like saying, "sure it's just as fast, but it doesn't have the endurance" which to me means it's fast as the x86 stuff now, they just need to work on thermal now. Was thinking about getting a new Mac, but if this thing is about to overtake the MacPro which is three times more (I know the multicore of the MacPro still runs circles, but what about next year?), what's to stop Apple from redoing it's laptop/desktop market with these in house processors which use little power, but huge efficiency gains if they manage to get the thermal issue within the next two years?
You're pretty much always running into thermal problems. You can overclock until you need a better cooling solution. Liquid nitrogen isn't an option for a smartphone, so thermals are the limiting factor, not technically but practically. What I'd like to see is a mobile processor used in a small Laptop. As others mentioned, the x86 performance might be very good. Maybe even a hybrid OS to save some power like the Google Chrome OS. If the Video render times are that low, I'd like to see these chips embedded in a Laptop that I can well use for productivity. A Surface Book killer should be very well possible
