Price: prices can change over time. For technical reasons, they are not updated in real time. This is only an average of the results on the first page of each product, whether new or used. Shipping costs have not been integrated. To know the final price of the product, please go to the form of the shop. If no price is indicated, it means that we did not find any offers during the last update.

We can better compare what are the technical differences between the two processors. The processor Qualcomm SDM670 Snapdragon 670 has more cores, the turbo frequency of Apple A10 Fusion is bigger, that the thermal dissipation power of Apple A10 Fusion is less. The Qualcomm SDM670 Snapdragon 670 was designed earlier.

Ratios: we first consider the average for the new price if available, the average for the used price otherwise. Performance / global cost ratio: This is the ratio of performance on Geekbench 4, divided by the cost of the product + the cost of electricity over 5 years for a duration of use of 13 hours per day.

Performances :

Performance comparison between the two processors, for this we consider the results generated on benchmark software such as Geekbench 4.

AnTuTu - Total score
Apple A10 Fusion 179,650
Qualcomm SDM670 Snapdragon 670 159,000

The difference is 13%.

AnTuTu is one of the most popular apps in the world to evaluate and compare the power of a mobile device with the competition. It tests above all the power of calculation, the display of Web pages, the modeling of decorations in 3D, the management of the memory, the transfer of data.

Geekbench 4 - Multi-core & single core score - iOS & Android 64-bit
Apple A10 Fusion 3,358
Qualcomm SDM670 Snapdragon 670 1,629

In single core, the difference is 106%. In multi-core, the difference in terms of gap is 10%.

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.
