Apple A16 chipset’s AnTuTu score reveals +28% GPU performance bump

An early Geekbench result gave a particularly bad impression of the new Apple A16 chipset’s performance, but things are improving now that the AnTuTu team has found data from the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The Pro and Pro Max both posted scores of 978,147 and 972,936 respectively. Comparing that to the 13-series models, an improvement of about 19% can be seen. Also keep in mind that this comparison also applies to the 14-series as the new iPhone 14 and iPhone Plus employ the processor from the iPhone 13 Pro pair. The base-model iPhone 14 Phones received a 6GB RAM increase, much like the Pros did last year (and this year too).

According to the breakdowns, memory performance increased by 10%, while CPU performance increased by a respectable 17%. The GPU stands out with a 28% improvement over the previous iteration. This might be the greatest generational advancement in recent years, therefore it surprises us that Apple didn’t mention it during the presentation.

In contrast, preliminary AnTuTu scores for the iPhone 13 Pros from the previous year revealed a 17% improvement in CPU score over the 12 Pro generation and a 19% improvement in GPU score. The memory score impressed with a 44% increase last year.

It should be noted that the tested iPhone 14 Pro pair had 1TB of storage, giving it a little advantage over devices with less storage. Even so, the A16 chipset outperforms the processor from the previous year in terms of performance.

The Asus ROG Phone 6 achieved the highest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 scores, coming in at 1,110,172 overall, 261,708 on the CPU test, and 469,592 on the GPU test. By the end of the year, the Apple A16 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (which will most likely be manufactured on the same fabrication node) will be available.
