    Nah. They put the same chip in a smaller phone requiring less power, so it's to be expected. Great for 8 owners. Hardly a blow to the rest of us.

    These benchmarks are crazy.

    The A9 is still perfectly fast and flies on iOS 11 and gets about 2500 single core , 4400 multi. More than enough for the use of a phone.

    I'm sure X owners will be fine with their phones performance

    That makes no sense, why is the 8 higher than the X?

    Now that I think about it, it could be because of FaceID constantly running in the background that diverts some of the processing power. Even still, that shows how little processing consumption is taken up by the FaceID. iPhone X is still king.

    Way less pixels to push on the 8 also.

    Lower resolution screen means the CPU / GPU don't have to work as hard.

    No it’s because smaller screen. Fewer pixels to push around, lower resolution with same processor.

    That just seems like normal variance to me.

    Optimized for performance / battery usage.

    The impact on the CPU would be minimal. The GPU would be the most impacted by the extra pixels.
