Apple's A10 Fusion processor wins the race in the processor performance competition against Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821, making Apple the best phone in the tech market.

Apple's A10 Fusion is a quad core processor with a clock speed of 2.34 GHz. The processor is currently incorporated in Apple's iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, having a 2GB and 3GB RAM, respectively. A10 Fusion is manufactured by TSMC for Apple.

Apple's biggest rival for A10 Fusion is the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 processor, pretty much available in the all smartphones running on Android. It is also a quad-core processor with a clock speed of 2 x 2.4 GHz + 2 x 2.0 GHz.

The foremost advantage of A10 fusion SoC is that it is used under one platform, which enables designers to improve the efficiency of the chip in terms of features like processing power, energy efficiency, and performance.

Whereas Snapdragon 821 is seen in any new Android device, it needs to sacrifice performance in lieu of usability and must be compatible with different mobile manufacturer and applications.

According to Tech Grapple, the Apple's A10 Fusion and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 processors were compared -

GeekBench performance bench mark scores show that Apple's A10 Fusion scored 3479 whereas Snapdragon 821 scored 1853 in a single core test, making A10 Fusion the winner in the test.

Followed by Multi core test, the Apple's A10 Fusion scored 5708 whereas Snapdragon 821 scored 4380 which shows the indication that A10 Fusion fitted devices run faster than the Snapdragon 821 fitted devices.

Test benches show that the A10 Fusion is at least 33 percent faster in single-core processing than the Snapdragon 821. GFXBench graphic test also indicates that Apple's A10 six core GPU is also found to be better than Snapdragon 821's Adreno 530 GPU.
