We can better compare what are the technical differences between the two processors.

Price: For technical reasons, we cannot currently display a price less than 24 hours, or a real-time price. This is why we prefer for the moment not to show a price. You should refer to the respective online stores for the latest price, as well as availability.

The processor Apple A15 Bionic has more cores, the maximum frequency of Apple A15 Bionic is greater, that the thermal dissipation power of ARM11 is less. The Apple A15 Bionic was designed earlier.

Performance comparison with the benchmarks:

Performance comparison between the two processors, for this we consider the results generated on benchmark software such as Geekbench.

With iOS:

Geekbench 4 - Multi-core & Single Core Score - iOS
Apple A15 Bionic 7,510
ARM11 135

In single core, the difference is 5463%. In multi-core, the differential gap is 14450%.

Geekbench 4 is a complete benchmark platform with several types of tests, including data compression, images, AES encryption, SQL encoding, HTML, PDF file rendering, matrix computation, Fast Fourier Transform, 3D object simulation, photo editing, memory testing. This allows us to better visualize the respective power of these devices. For each result, we took an average of 250 values on the famous benchmark software.
