Apple A15 Performance
The current generation of iPhone 12 Series with Apple A14 Bionic 5nm processor, performance has made it difficult for Android to look back. The new report claims that Apple A15, which will soon be equipped in the iPhone 13 Series, will continue to upgrade performance.
Recently, AppleInsider revealed through the Clien community that the Apple A15 performance test of the prototype on GFXBench Manhattan 3.1 achieved 198fps. Unfortunately, after the second test GPU downscaled, resulting in the score slipping to 140~150FPS.
Apple A14 is GFXBenc Manhattan 3.1 scenario is currently the world’s highest score of 137FPS, that is, the A15 GPU performance has improved by up to 44%. Of course, some media claim that the A14 can run up to 170.7FPS so that the increase is 16%. On other hand, Exynos 2200 with AMD GPU, will also be a prominent competitor, expected to equal or surpass this score.
The Manhattan 3.1 benchmark test is part of the GFXBench application, which tests graphics performance with a focus on calculating 3D geometry, advanced lighting, shadows and blurs while measuring latency rendering speed.
Apple’s mobile processors are often at or near the top of benchmarks, beating out most chips from competitors like Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek. Over the years, however, that gap has been narrowing, with the highest-scoring SoCs often holding the edge for only a few months.
In terms of Android SoC, Kirin 9000 scores 119 highest, followed by Snapdragon 888 Plus at 118FPS, with the A15 increasing 66% and 67% respectively in comparison. The A15 is still said to be a 6-core CPU processor, with the process upgraded to TSMC N5P, which is a 5nm enhanced version.
