A15 benchmarks reveal almost 21% gain in CPU performance over A14

More data from Apple’s unreleased iPhone 13 series has found its way to the Geekbench browser and offers a sneak peek at the performance that users can expect from the next generation handset and by extension the new iPad mini.

According to CPU statistics uploaded by Geekbench users, the iPhone 13’s average single-core score is 1730, an increase of about 10% from the iPhone 12’s score of 1575. Multi-core scores average 4621 or almost 21% higher than the 3832 , which was inserted from iPhone 12.

If correct, the numbers represent a decent bump in computer performance for the entire iPhone 13 line. While Apple includes an extra GPU core and more memory in the A15 Bionic installed in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models, all iPhone 13 models share a common six-core CPU design with two performance cores and four efficiency cores .

It should be noted that only six devices with designations ranging from “iPhone14.2,” “iPhone14.3” and “iPhone14.5” have run the benchmarking package and uploaded similar data at the time of writing, and the early information can not be confirmed as legitimate. That said, the results are consistent and the data sheds light on hardware specifications that Apple has not yet detailed.

As noted by MacRumors, which discovered the Geekbench results earlier today, the iPhone 13’s metal score of 10608 is much lower than the corresponding 14216 score inserted by an iPhone 13 Pro, again a result of a fewer GPU core. Still, the A15 in the iPhone 13 and presumably the iPhone 13 mini gives a metal score that is about 15% higher than last year’s A14 Bionic.

Apple failed to specify the A15’s CPU performance at its “California Streaming” event on Tuesday, saying only that the chip is 50% faster than the competition. The ambiguity led some to believe that the decision not to include direct comparisons was intentional.
