iPhone 13 Pro GPU benchmarks show 55% improvement over iPhone 12 Pro

Though Apple's iPhone 13 models are not due to arrive in customer hands until Sept. 24, benchmark scores from the smartphone have surfaced and show the Apple's A15 Bionic processor includes massive GPU improvements over iPhone 12 Pro's A14 chip.

iPhone 13 Pro


A Geekbench score posted to the Geekbench Browser on Wednesday sees an "iPhone14,2," thought to be an iPhone 13 Pro, achieve a Metal score of 14216 while running iOS 15 on an A15 system-on-chip. The result is a 55% improvement over the A14 in Apple's iPhone 12 Pro, which posted a score of 9123, according to benchmarks submitted to Geekbench.

The benchmark also reveals a RAM allotment of 5.56GB, which can be translated to 6GB given operational load, Geekbench algorithms and other considerations. That finding is in line with reports that iPhone 13 is outfitted with the same amount of memory as iPhone 12.

MacRumors reported on the Geekbench score earlier today.

Apple's A15 variant in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max features a new five-core GPU that the company says delivers "up to 50% faster graphics performance than any other smartphone chip." A four-core GPU is deployed in the A15 used by iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

Full benchmarks for the latest A-series silicon have yet to appear. Apple failed to detail A15's CPU performance in its "California Streaming" event on Tuesday, leading some to believe that the chip does not achieve the year-over-year improvements typical of Apple's flagship mobile chips.

    This type of performance jump might line up with previous leaked results

    A14:

    "Manhattan 3.1: 120 fps"

    A15:

    "Manhattan 3.1: 198 FPS"



    One important thing to note though, the throttling did bring it down to ~145 FPS on the second run.

    hmm, more differentiation with the pro and non-pro models

    Found this one, https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/9826319, that say's it's an iPhone14,2 performed today that includes a LENOVO Mac-F4208CC8 PVT motherboard. The results aren't good at all and it says it's running macOS 10.13.6 (Build 17G66) so it's obviously faked. Wonder how many others are also faked.

    Trading my iPhone 12 Pro Max in for the iPhone 13 Pro. The new Pro Max is heavier and thicker then its predecessor so I decided to opt for the smaller version.

    How are people able to benchmark, given that iPhone 13 hasn't yet been made available to buy?

    Whiners "oh no there is no difference between iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 performance"

    Reality: more efficient, more speed.

    That one is fake, not the others. As you can see, it is easy to spot.

    Testers back at the mother ship?

    Early reviewers under embargo?
