In the same comparison, the A11 got a single core score of 4206 and a multi-core score of 10128, indicating the new A12 chip will be approximately 10 percent faster than the A11 chip when it comes to both multi-core and single-core performance.

Compute scores of the 2018 iPhone features a Metal score of 21691. Compared to the iPhone X’s Metal score of 15234, this is the result of GPU improvements.
