The iPhone 15 series is finally launched globally. It comprises the regular iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. As seen from the past two generations, the situation is also the same now.
The standard variants come with the previous A16 Bionic chipset, and the rest of the Pro variants come with the new A17 Pro chipset. Additionally, they are the first phones to be based on 3nm architecture.
The new Apple A17 Pro processor features a six-core SoC, out of which two are performance cores and four are efficiency cores. The company said this performs 10% better than the A16 Bionic chipset. However, the testing revealed something beyond these numbers.
As the series has just launched, the benchmark scores and related tests are already out to test the performance and efficiency of the new SoC. This test type helps us analyze the chipset on paper and gives approximate data for better understanding.
The unveiled Geekbench data reveals auxiliary details of the new A17 Pro and compares it with the previous generation processor. The A17 Pro Chipset is considered to be the fastest in the mobile industry. The variants (iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max) are now on Geekbench, and their single-core and multi-core scores are out. Read more to find out.
The iPhone 15 Pro Geekbench Results
The first geekbench test was performed on the iPhone 15 Pro (A17 Pro). From the test (Geekbench 6.2 version), the phone scored 2,908 single-core points and 7,238 multi-core points. For comparison, the previous iPhone 14 Pro (A16 Bionic) scored approximately 2,500 and 6,400 points in the single-core and multi-core, respectively. This represents a 16% increase in single-core performance and a 13% increase in multi-core performance.
The iPhone 15 Pro Max Geekbench Results
The next test was performed on the iPhone 15 Pro Max (A17 Pro), the top-of-the-line variant in the series. From the test (Geekbench 6.2 version), the phone scored 2,846 points in single-core and 7,024 points in multi-core. For comparison, the previous iPhone 14 Pro Max (A16 Bionic) scored 2,520 and 6,370 points in the single-core and multi-core respectively. This represents a 14% increase in single-core performance and a 10% increase in multi-core performance.
The benchmark results also revealed that the CPU performance cores are based on a 3.78GHz base frequency. However, there are no words about the core clock speed efficiency. But, from the 3nm-based architecture chipset, we expect it to perform exceptionally well than the 4nm-based competition. Also, the Geekbench confirms the base 8GB RAM configuration on the Pro models.
For further information, we should wait for more tests and after the iPhones officially sell in the country. We will have more liable sources, which will help us analyze the chipset’s potential even better. We are still waiting for the AnTuTu scores for the iPhone 15 Pro lineup, but we will update this article as soon as they become available.
