The previous early performance evaluation of the A17 Bionic processor showed that there was no significant improvement in single-core performance compared to the previous generation A16 Bionic processor. However, the newly exposed running scores show a completely different picture.
The image shared by Naveen Tech Wala on X shows that the benchmark test was conducted on the iPhone 15 Pro, showing the identifier iPhone 16,1. Previous rumours have suggested that the A17 will continue to feature a hexa-core CPU like the A16, and Geekbench 6 results show both performance cores running at the same clock speed of 3.70GHz.
The results show that the single-core score of the A17 in the benchmark test is 3269 points, which is 31% higher than that of the A16. In the multi-core test, the gap isn’t that big, with the A17 outperforming the A16 by 24%, but still very good.
The Geekbench 6 image also shows the Metal score, which tests the GPU of the upcoming SoC, scoring 30,669 points.
These running score results make people look forward to the upcoming iPhone 15 series, but it needs to be pointed out that these running score results may be modified or forged, so before Apple officially releases the iPhone 15 series, we still have to check Be skeptical.
