iPhone 13 Pro runs Geekbench, reveals 55% better GPU performance vs iPhone 12 Pro
As you probably already know, Apple unveiled four new smartphones yesterday – iPhone 13, 13 mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. They are all powered by the A15 chip, but there are GPU differences between them.
While the iPhone 13 and 13 mini have a 4-core GPU, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max along with the new iPad mini have a 5-core GPU.
This A15 chip with a 5-core GPU has been tested on Geekbench’s computing benchmark using the Metal API today by someone who possesses an iPhone 13 Pro prototype. The resulting score is 14216, which is about 55% more than the iPhone 12 Pro’s 9123. This points to huge GPU performance improvements in the new iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max compared to their direct predecessors.
Apple has called the 5-core GPU version of the A15 “the world’s fastest smartphone chip” and promised that it delivers “50% faster graphics performance than any other smartphone chip”. Well, that seems to be the case at least when comparing last year’s A14 Bionic with 4-core GPU, as shown in the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 13 Pro also has 6 GB of RAM.
We do not yet know how the A15 with 4-core GPU would work, as no one has yet benchmarked an iPhone 13 or 13 mini. We also do not have CPU benchmark results for any of Apple’s new devices at this time, but all of these will definitely come soon.
