The latest performance tests of Apple‘s A16 Bionic GPU have shown a less than significant improvement over its predecessor. The A16 Bionic powers the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. The chipset was put through the paces of GPU tests and it did not deliver noticeable improvements over its predecessor, the A15 Bionic.
The A16 Bionic debuted with the iPhone 14 series and it has been put through several benchmarking performance tests. The current performance tests sought to examine how much better the new chipset is over its predecessor and other flagship chips like the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The tests were carried out by Golden Reviewer and the A16 Bionic chalked a score of 3,359 on 3DMark’s Wildlife Extreme test, higher than any other tested chipset. However, its 444.1 efficiency score was less than that of MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100 and Dimensity 9000 SoCs. The A16 Bionic is also about 20% more powerful than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and also slightly more efficient.
When squared up against the A15 Bionic, The new Apple chipset was only 5% more powerful and 20% more efficient. A few other benchmarking tests have put the A16 Bionic as the most powerful mobile chip in terms of GPU. The performance metrics show a significant improvement in the efficiency of the A16 Bionic over the A15 Bionic. However, in terms of raw power, there is only a minimal improvement. Gizmochina
