The initial results of the Geekbench benchmark test on Apple’s A16 chip painted a very inefficient picture of the performance of this semiconductor. But now the AnTuTu team has gone to work and published the benchmark test results on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Based on this, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max managed to get 978147 and 972936 points respectively. These scores show an increase of about 19% compared to iPhone 13 series models. It should be noted that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use the same chip used in the iPhone 13 Pro series; But the performance of this chip in the iPhone 14 series has been evaluated once again. The non-Pro models of the iPhone 14 series are equipped with 6 GB of RAM, just like last year’s Pro iPhones.
By checking the scores registered in different sections, we will find that the CPU performance has been significantly improved by 17%. Also, the memory score has increased by 10%. However, the 28% jump in GPU performance compared to the previous generation chip is really what has impressed all the experts. It is strange that Apple did not mention the graphics capabilities of the A16 chip during the event to introduce its new iPhones. Such progress can be considered as the most improvement between 2 generations in recent years.
For comparison, it is interesting to know that the initial results of the AnTuTu test for the iPhone 13 Pro series last year indicated a 17% increase in CPU score and a 19% increase in GPU performance compared to the iPhone 12 Pro series. However, last year the chip score experienced a stunning jump with a 44% growth compared to the previous generation.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max scores in AnTuTu benchmark
It is worth noting that the dual models of the iPhone 14 Pro series on which the benchmark test was performed; They are equipped with 1 TB of internal memory. This makes the tested models slightly superior to versions with lower capacity. However, the A16 chip now shows significant performance improvements over last year’s model.
Having said that, it is interesting to know that the total points of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation chip are in the range of 1 million units. Asus Ragphone 6 smartphone has managed to get a total score of 1110172 in the AnTuTu benchmark test. This handset scored 261,708 and 469,592 in CPU and GPU performance tests, respectively.
The 2nd generation Snapdragon 8 chip will most likely be manufactured using the same process used for the 1st generation Snapdragon 8 Plus chip and the Apple A16 chip. This chip will be released by the end of this year.
