Apple A9 chipset scores high in GeekBench tests; huge improvement over A8
The single core score of the A9 is 57% better than the 1605 produced by the A8 chipset that is found inside the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. The A9's multi-core score of 4423 on the iPhone 6s Plus is a 54% improvement on the A8's multi-core score on the iPhone 6Plus. The only multi-core score that beat out the A9 was the 4404 scored by the Exynos 7420. That topped the multi-core score of the A9 powering the iPhone 6s, by a single point.
The Apple A9 chipset produced by Samsung uses the 14nm FinFET process, and features 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM. That is twice the amount of RAM that Apple employed with the A8.
