The A11 chip is reportedly going to be introduced in three of Apple’s upcoming iPhones for 2017, the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8.
Reports state that Apple’s supplier Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. aka TSMC has already begun production on the A11 CPU chip back in mid-spring. Apple expects TSMC to produce at least a mass production of 50 million units by mid-summer to premiere in the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and later in Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone 8, which is rumored to debut after September this year.
Some believe the A11 custom CPU design just might be the best in the smartphone industry when it comes to performance. It seems a leaker by the name “Ice Universe” posted geek-bench test results of the A11 chip, the A11 scored between 4300 and 4600 in single core testing, and the test results for the multi-core were between 7000 and 8000 which is pretty impressive compared to the Advanced A10X Fusion chip found in the latest iPad Pro which scored a 3378.
