I did a CPU test battle between my MacBook Pro 2017 cheapest model and my iPhone X and surprisingly the last one won. I tried to find out how was it possible, I know the A11 is a monster, but an intel i5 should beat him. So I used Intel Power Gadget and I discovered that Geekbench on the Mac was using a small part of the Intel CPU power. I attached screenshots for the CPU usage during the Geekbench test and during a final cut playback: there is a huge difference. Final Cut uses Turbo Boost and shows the real power of the CPU. Geekbench should ask to activate Turbo Boost or at least it should uses always the standard 2.3 frequency on my computer to give accurate benchmarks. I think this thing may have compromised lots of Mac tests.
