The first Geekbench results for the iPhone 15 Pro confirm Apple's claims that the new A17 Pro chip will improve performance compared to last year's A16 Bionic chipset found in the iPhone 14 Pro.
As discovered by MySmartPrice, the benchmarking platform recorded a drop in iPhone 15 Pro tested in real-world conditions with iPhone model number 16.1 and a six-core processor with a base frequency of 3.78 GHz.
As a result of testing, the device scored 2908 and 7238 points in single-core and multi-core tests, while last year's iPhone 14 Pro scored 2642 and 6739 points, respectively.
Meanwhile, iPhone 15 Pro Max with iPhone model number 16.2 scored 2846 and 7024 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. It also compares favorably with last year's iPhone 14 Pro Max, which scored 2546 and 6631 points in the same tests.
According to Geekbench results, 8 GB of RAM were also recorded for both iPhone 15 Pro models compared to 6GB of RAM in last year's Pro models, confirming previous reports.
The Apple A17 Pro chip is manufactured using a first-of-its-kind 3nm process. The A17 Pro features a six-core processor that delivers 10% faster CPU performance and 20% faster GPU performance. It also features a 2x faster 16-core neural engine for faster machine learning, such as more accurate auto-correction or object extraction from an image. It can process up to 35 trillion operations per second.
In addition, the A17 Pro is equipped with an all-new GPU with shader architecture developed by Apple. Apple says this is the largest redesign in the history of Apple GPUs, with a focus on performance and efficiency, running complex apps, and new rendering features.
iPhone 15 Pro starts at $999 for 128 GB of internal memory, while the iPhone 15 Pro Max starts at $1,199 for 256 GB of internal memory. All new iPhone 15 models are available for pre-order starting Friday, September 15 and will go on sale on Friday, September 22 in more than 40 countries and regions worldwide.
