Apple's next mobile chip - the one set to power Apple's iPhones that will debut tomorrow - is going to pack a six-core processor.
The A11 will have two high-power Monsoon cores and four low-power Mistral cores and all of them will be independently-controllable and will be able to run at the same time.
Just to clarify on the A11: it's two high-power Monsoon cores and four low-power Mistral cores, all independently addressable. No Fusion— Steve T-S (@stroughtonsmith) September 10, 2017
The bit of information was extracted by dev Steve T-S from the same iOS 11 Golden Master that unearthed Face ID, the new wallpapers and animated emojis.
The current-gen A10 Fusion chip found in the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has two high-powered Hurricane cores and 2 low-power Zephyr cores but they can only run one cluster at a time - either the powerful ones or the battery efficient ones.
Tomorrow's the day Apple will show its next smartphones. Stay tuned here at GSMArena for the full coverage.
So they called it iPhone 10! Odd choice but hey!
You are wrong, the IOS chipsets are great. Fast, reliable, very worthy. ANDROID simply sucks because of patents. The fact that IOS is the best technology ever made for the world of phone devices tabs and more.
I think apple are creating fast chipsets but only for their system. Hence, if you put an A10 or A11 on an Android phone like a Note 8 for example, it might not run smoothly or as fast as it runs on an iOS device.
