Early Geekbench Scores of Apple’s A18 Pro Chip Leaked

Last year, Apple became the first smartphone brand to release a phone with a chip based on a 3nm fabrication process. This chip was the A17 Pro, which debuted on the iPhone 15 series Pro models.

This year, if Apple follows the trend of the past few years, we will see the successor of this chip on the iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 16 Pro Max. And now, a few months before the launch, we already have some details of the A18 Pro chip.

An anonymous user on the Chinese social networking site Weibo recently shared the benchmark scores of Apple’s upcoming A18 Pro chip. In particular, the benchmark platforms mentioned in the post are GeekBench 5 and GeekBench 6.

A18 Pro Chip Leaked geekbench

On GeekBench 5, the A18 Pro chip scores 2571 points in the single-core test and 7359 points in the multi-core test. On the newer GeekBench 6, the chip scored 2822 points in the first test and 8571 points in the latter. These are perfect and impressive scores. For some comparison, the A17 Pro chip from last year, on GeekBench 6, scores 2907 in the single-core test and 7235 in the multi-core one.

Interestingly, the single-core score has dropped with the newer chip, while the multi-core score has taken a significant leap. On a related note, it is important to mention that this is only the test data. Also, the chip is still in development, as the user who shared the information stated. The real-world test results will vary slightly once the chip reaches the mass production stage.

Coming back to the details of the A18 Pro chip, it is likely that Apple will reuse the same 3nm process node by TSMC. Also, the naming convention is unclear, considering Apple added ‘Pro’ to the name of their last year’s chip. It is possible that this year’s chip could be called the A18 Bionic. Other than this, there is no solid information available about this year’s mobile chip from Apple.
