Usually, even unannounced smartphone models with new processors can be found among the results of synthetic tests. The iPhone 15 Pro was not included in the benchmarks before the announcement, but it managed to get a “light” before the start of sales.
So now you can find out how much the new A17 Pro chip outperforms last year’s A16 Bionic, when, according to Apple, the new product has a 10% more efficient CPU and 20% faster graphics processing.
And Geekbench confirms such calculations. Thus, A17 Pro managed to get results at the level of 2914 points for a single core, and 7199 points in the multi-core test. This is about 13% ahead of its predecessor. The results of the even older A15 Bionic are thus 40% lower.
Moreover, these figures are getting closer to the proprietary M1 processors, which were the first chips of Apple’s own design for laptops and Macs.
Comparison of Geekbench test results for a single core and a multi-core test:
- A15 Bionic: 2183 / 5144;
- A16 Bionic: 2519 / 6367;
- A17 Pro: 2914 / 7199;
- M1: 2223 / 7960.
At the same time, Geekbench has confirmed an increase in the amount of RAM in the iPhone 15 Pro from 6 to 8 GB.
