The GPU performance of the Apple A16 chip increased by more than a quarter compared to the A15

Data from the popular AnTuTu benchmark shows that the Apple A16 Bionic processor used in the latest iPhone smartphones significantly outperforms the previous generation A15 Bionic chip in terms of graphics unit (GPU) performance.

Keep in mind that the A16 Bionic is the “heart” of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use the A15 Bionic. The processors have an identical architecture: these are six computing cores (two productive and four energy-efficient), a five-core GPU node and a 16-core Neural Engine.

In the AnTuTu test, the iPhone 14 Pro scored 978,147 overall, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max scored 972,936. That is around 19% more than the result of the iPhone 13 series devices with the A15 Bionic chip.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models show a 17% increase in core CPU performance and a 10% increase in memory compared to their predecessors. The performance of the graphics node has increased by more than a quarter – by 28%.

We add that the AnTuTu test used versions of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max equipped with a 1 TB flash drive. The devices have 6 GB of RAM on board.
