Apple has released iPhone 13 series recently that includes four models such as iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Although they all are powered by the same flagship Apple A15 Bionic chipset out-of-the-box, there are some differences in the GPU performance, obviously. While iPhone 13 and 13 Mini have a 4-core GPU, the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max have a 5-core GPU.
Talking about the new iPad Mini 6th generation, it also has a 5-core GPU. The A15 chipset with a 5-core GPU of iPhone 13 Pro has been tested on Geekbench benchmark using the Metal API and the result is expected. It scored 14216 which is around 55% higher in the GPU performance than the iPhone 12 Pro (scored 9123). That literally indicates the powerful GPU performance improvements to the new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max straight away than their predecessors.
Apple has already mentioned the A15’s 5-core GPU version as ‘the world’s fastest smartphone chip’ and promised that it can deliver up to ‘50% faster graphics performance than any other smartphone chip’ in the market currently. Well, that’s coming into the light while comparing to the last year’s A14 Bionic chipset with 4-core GPU that was featured in iPhone 12 Pro. It’s also worth noting that the iPhone 13 Pro has the same 6GB of RAM just like the iPhone 12 Pro.
Meanwhile, we’re not aware of how the Apple A15 chipset with a 4-core GPU will perform in benchmarking tests or day-to-day usage. But it’s also expected that both the CPU & GPU performance will be good enough than its predecessors for sure. Whereas the optimized iOS version makes it a deadly combo as a daily driver than a flagship-grade Android smartphone in several ways.
We hope that more benchmarking results will come up in the upcoming days or weeks so that we can know better about other iPhone 13 models.
