    Johny Srouji, Senior Vice President of Hardware Technologies at Apple, will speak at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh next week.

    The university's School of Computer Science today announced that Srouji will attend a distinguished industry lecture on Monday, September 18 at the Rashid Auditorium, where he will speak at 5:00 p.m. local time.
    Carnegie Mellon didn't reveal what Srouji will be talking about, but at Apple, he leads the team responsible for custom silicon and hardware technologies like batteries, storage controllers, and application processors, including its new A11 Bionic chip in the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

    An excerpt from his executive profile on Apple's website:
    In a recent interview with Mashable, Srouji revealed that Apple began exploring and developing the core technologies in the A11 chip three years ago, when the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launched with A8 chips.

    The A11 Bionic is a six-core chip with two performance cores that are 25 percent faster, and four high-efficiency cores that are 70 percent faster, than the A10 chip in iPhone 7 models. Geekbench scores suggest the A11 Bionic is even on par with the performance of Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Pro models.

    (Thanks, Benedict Evans!)

    Interested in ARM's DynamIQ bringing L3 Cache in mobile. So, will it come next year or 3yrs from now from Apple?

    Someone could ask him, why the minimum $999 iPhone (only in US though) doesn't come with fast-charging compatible adapter & cables.

    Curious, how does Samsung's latest processor compare spec wise?

    Not very favorably. The one used in the US version of the Note 8, the Qualcomm 835, is just catching up to the A10. If you mean Samsung's own chip (not used in the American Note 8 or S8) the Exynos 8895, it seems to be give or take about the same as the 835. And again, behind the iPhone 7's A10 in most things. Of course, it's hard to separate the processor from optimization and efficiency of the OS. My guess is Apple is ahead in both.
    It's not like you'll find general usage of either phone/chip to show a big difference- but just about anything that needs a progress bar while the CPU cranks away shows how far ahead Apple's chips are.
