      Cause the MSM8926, a quad core A7 @ 1.2Ghz scores 445.
      And the MSM8916, a quad core A53 @1.2Ghz scores 520.

        I do know though that fully clocked M3 squeezes 3700 points
        2.3 GHz M3 yields 2800 and 1.9 GHz about 2300...
        It's a mystery... o.o

          Just remember that A7 at 2GHz scores about 420, while A53@2 GHz is about 900 or so, WHY HERE you are not skeptical?

            SERIOUSLY?

            I though you worked on something related to this stuff, now i doubt it.

                                Well... It does interest me if apple indeed gone three clusters. Which core they'd use for extreme power saving.
                                As for K980~
                                Imo 2xA76@2.9+2xA55@2.2+4xA35@1.8 would be better. As A57 is first gen "BIG" core. And interestingly preforms less than the "Little" Core A55.
                                2.1 GHz A57 Geekbench4 Single core: 1430
                                1.8GHz A55 GB4 Score: 1820
                                So imagine what'll happen if we scale things up by a few more megahertzs?

                                    A11 Bionic was also prone to thermal throttling, so I'm glad that Apple acknowledges this concern.
                                    But my suggestion is for them to add another set of clusters for true power-saving actions.
                                    2 high performance cores + 2 average performance cores + 4 low performance cores would be ideal here.
                                    MediaTek somehow was successful with this in their Helio X30, but it wasn't highly used enough to become a standard.
                                    Glad that Huawei tried it, hoping for others to follow suit.

                                      Kiyasuriin, 13 Sep 20184/4? Or 3/5? And if A12 is octa, the A12X is Deca? Better 4-4 clusters
                                      But I believe that we must have 3-cluster chipsets now, just like the one on the Kirin 980.

                                      For a flagship, it could be like a 2xCortex A76@2.5GHz + 2xCortex A57@2.0GHz + 4xCortex A35@1.8GHz
                                      This way, we can achieve better battery life at least, assuming that this will be based on the new 7nm process.

                                        Eyes shattering numbers, there is zero chance for any upcoming chipset next year at least first Half, to come close to those numbers. A12 is beast, but considering anything else, this company is crooks and should be avoided as plague, that prices for iPhones and they closed eco system is laughable, not even fast charger included in a package, disgraceful for consumer point of view
