Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max appears on Geekbench

Apple today released the new iPhone  14 series models, of which the iPhone 14 / Plus is equipped with the previous generation A15 bionic chip, while the Pro / Max is equipped with the new A16 Bionic chip, ushering in a New exclamation point screen, 48MP camera, new all-weather display, car accident detection, and innovative ways to receive notifications or interactions through iOS16's Smart Island.

According to Apple's official data, the A16 Bionic's GPU and neural engine core are exactly the same as last year's A15 Bionic, and thanks to the improvement of TSMC's N4 (third-generation 5nm, about 6% density increase) process, the final CPU In terms of achieving "nearly 16 billion transistors", it is slightly higher than the 15 billion A15.

Considering that Apple claims that the power consumption of the A16 large core (2 large and 4 small) is reduced by about 20%, most people think that the performance improvement of the A16 is extremely limited and the area has not changed much.

However, judging from Apple's official PPT, the A16 has an improvement of about 33.3% compared to the A13, and is about 40% ahead of another competing product that is not as good as the A13 (with a high probability of being Samsung's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1).

But in fact, compared with the A15 in terms of paper parameters, only the memory has been upgraded from LPDDR4X 4266 to LPDDR5 6400, so the bandwidth has been increased by 50%. Although theoretically the game performance of A16 will be improved, Apple has not advertised this point; and the NPU computing power has been upgraded from 16T to 17T.

Now, some reviewers who got the iPhone 14 Pro Max in advance have conducted online running scores, and the results have been included in the Geekbench database, and everyone has finally been able to clear their doubts.

From the point of view of running points, the A16 single-core and multi-core are 1879 points and 4664 points respectively, the base frequency is 3.46GHz, and the machine runs iOS16 system, still 6GB RAM.

As a comparison, the average single-core running points of the 3.2GHz A15 given by Geekbench are 1692 points (iPhone13 / mini), 1707 points (Pro / Max), and 1722 ( iPhone SE 3); while the multi-core running points are 4498, 4674, 4546 points.

Based on this calculation, the A16 single-core is about 9.12%~11.05% higher than the A15, and the multi-core is about -0.21%~3.69% higher, but considering the frequency increase of about 8.13%, this is also expected.

Of course, although the performance improvement is not as much as everyone expected, this generation of A16 does reduce power consumption and brings more advanced camera performance.

With a new ISP and 48MP main camera, the iPhone 14 Pro and Max capture sharper images than any iPhone, and can perform up to 4 trillion operations per photo, preserving more data and achieving brighter and More vibrant photos.
