    It's not a laughing matter for Intel.

    Sorry, but you can't compare Geekbench x86 and Geekbench ARM. They're much more different than you'd think.

      Why didn't your report the real story, iPhone 8 blows away the competition in performance. 54% faster than the Galaxy Note 8 with a Snapdragon 835. Graphics performance also crushed the competition in a similar manner.

      Don't like benchmarks, how about real life applications: In a like comparison of video editing and export, iPhone 8 took 42 seconds, Note 8 more that 3 minutes, Galaxy 8 more than 4 minutes.

      Opening a 5.1 mb pdf, iPhone 0.8 seconds, Note 8, 8.41 seconds.

      Makes the Sansum flagships look like overpriced midrange devices in performance.

    "However, Poole provided the important caveat that laptops are better at delivering sustained performance over a longer period of time, as opposed to the shorter max burst performance that benchmarks like Geekbench 4 are designed to measure. In other words, the iPhone 8 simply doesn’t have the thermals and heat dissipation necessary to replace your laptop."

    When Apple began designing their own ARM chips,...they've just absolutely run away with mobile speed and efficiency. They caught the whole world flat-footed and jumped to 64bit, and it's been a one-horse race since.
