Apple's latest iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, featuring the new A17 Pro 3nm chipset, made headlines earlier this week. The new Apple A17 Pro SoC boasts a 6-core processor, including 2 high-performance cores and 4 efficiency cores, delivering a claimed 10% boost in speed compared to the its predecessor A16 Bionic.
Notably, the benchmark scores for the iPhone 15 Pro series are now available on Geekbench, shedding light on the A17 Pro chip's processing capabilities and providing a basis for comparison with last year's A16 Bionic SoC.
The iPhone 15 Pro achieved an impressive 2,908 single-core points and a 7,238 multi-core score as compared to the previous iPhone 14 Pro which recorded scores in the range of 2,500 for single-core and 6,400 for multi-core on Geekbench. This reveals a remarkable 16% improvement in single-core performance and a notable 13% gain in multi-core performance for the new iPhone 15 Pro.
Additionally, Geekbench shared that the CPU performance cores within the A17 Pro operate at a base frequency of 3.78GHz, establishing them as the fastest performance cores among mobile chipsets. However, information regarding the clock speeds of the efficiency cores remains undisclosed as of now.
As for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, it attained benchmark scores of 2,846 for single-core performance and 7,024 for multi-core performance. These listings also confirm the presence of 8GB of RAM. It will be intriguing to observe how the new 3nm A17 Pro chip performs in terms of efficiency, given the utilization of the advanced 3nm manufacturing process.
