A17 Bionic Chip for iPhone 15 Pro to Feature 6 GPU Cores, Up from 5 in A16

The upcoming iPhone 15 series launch is not too far from now. The Cupertino-based Tech Giant will probably unveil its new generation of iPhones on September 12, Tuesday. The series will likely consist of four models: the iPhone 15, the iPhone 15 Plus, the iPhone 15 Pro, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

In the technology era, the leakers and collaborators reveal the likely figures for the smartphone before its launch. We do not lack the number of tipsters who have nearly pulled off the expected specifications the smartphones will bring. The processor performance and information are also out for the iPhone 15 Pro variants before launch.

As already known, the iPhone 15 Pro and the iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to come with Apple’s new A17 Bionic chipset. However, as repeated from the previous generation, the regular variants will still have the A16 Bionic chipset, which is, for now, limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Furthermore, a renowned leaker, Unknownz21, has revealed some of the expected CPU and SoC chip specifications for the iPhone 15 Pro variants. He said the A17 chip would have a six-core CPU and six-core GPU configuration. For comparison, the earlier A16 chip has the five-core in-built GPU. So, the upcoming models will probably bring remarkable improvements in GPU performance.

In the same informative tweet, the leaker said that the A17 Bionic chipset would attribute a 3.70GHz clock rate instead of the 3.46GHz present on the previous chipset. If we recall the previously shared information, the iPhone 15 Pro models were expected to have 8GB of base RAM. Unfortunately, the leaker says they will feature the same 6GB RAM as the iPhone 12 Pro. However, we can expect last-minute changes from the company.

The A17 Bionic chipset will likely be based on the TSMC’s 3-nanometer fabrication process. We expect better speed, performance, and efficiency improvements on the upcoming smartphones. The 3-nm will hopefully increase the battery life and less power consumption than the 4-nm used on the A16 chipset, nearly 30% of the actual figures. It will also help improve GPU and CPU performance by 10-15%.

It is important to note that the more advanced the technology is, the price also increases. This will eventually increase the costs of the iPhone 15 Pro models. Already, we have seen the Indian prices for the iPhone 14 Pro variants, which are relatively expensive. Hence, this could be why the A17 chipset is exclusively available to the Pro versions. Therefore, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will likely feature an A16 Chipset, limiting the price.
