iPhone 13 Pro’s A15 Bionic chip has more powerful GPU than regular iPhone 13

As kept in mind by my 9to5Mac colleague Jeff Benjamim, the more powerful GPU for the Pro models may be connected to the addition of ProRes codec support. Apple said at the event that the A15 Bionic includes new video encoders and decoders efficient in shooting and editing video in ProRes, which not only use up a lot of internal storage area (which resulted in the brand-new 1TB design), however likewise require a lot from the GPU.

The A15 Bionic chip powers the whole iPhone 13 line, varying from the iPhone 13 mini to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Apple says the brand-new CPU has two high-performance cores and four cores for energy effectiveness. While they are most likely the exact same in both models, graphics efficiency is different in between the routine and Pro designs.

The GPU from the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 features 4 cores, and Apple states it delivers 30% better graphics efficiency compared to the “competitors.” As for the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the GPU has an additional core for an overall of five cores that deliver up to 50% much better performance compared to the competition.

Apple today presented iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and while the business markets the devices as having the exact same processor, they have some small distinctions in terms of efficiency. The GPU of the A15 chip found in the iPhone 13 Pro models is more effective than in the routine iPhone 13 models.

Heres what Apple states about the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 Pro:

With 5-nanometer technology, A15 Bionic– the fastest chip in a mobile phone– features a brand-new 5-core GPU in the Pro lineup that brings the fastest graphics efficiency in any smart device, as much as 50 percent quicker than the leading competition, suitable for video apps, high-performance gaming, and the slate of brand-new electronic camera functions.

This could also be connected to something referred to as “chip binning,” as previously discussed by my other 9to5Mac colleague Ben Lovejoy:

No chip fabrication process is best, and as the process gets smaller sized, the challenges of producing a best chip boost. What companies often do is aim for a particular specification, then different out those chips which fall short, and sell those as a lower-spec variation.

Obviously, we will have to wait till the very first deliveries of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro to discover the information about performance distinction in between both designs. iPhone 13 will be offered for pre-order this Friday with costs starting at $699 for iPhone 13 mini.
