An early Geekbench result painted a particularly bleak picture of the performance of Apple’s new A16 chipset, but now that the AnTuTu team has dug up the results from iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max things are getting better.
AnTuTu ratings: iPhone 14 Pro • iPhone 14 Pro Max
The Pro posted a total score of 978,147, with the Pro Max scoring 972,936. This represents an improvement of approximately 19% over the 13-series models. Also, note what’s new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use the chipset from the iPhone 13 Pro duo, this is also a comparison with the 14 series. The vanilla iPhone 14 phones have also been upgraded to 6GB of RAM, just like the Pros last year (and this one, too).
Looking at the breakdowns, the CPU performance increased by a respectable 17% and the memory score increased by 10%. This is indeed a GPU that boasts an impressive 28% jump over the previous generation. We’re surprised Apple didn’t mention it during the presentation, it could be the biggest generational improvement in years.
In comparison, first AnTuTu results for the iPhone 13 Pro last year showed a 17% increase in CPU score compared to the 12 Pro generation and a 19% increase in GPU. Last year, the memory index was impressive with a jump of 44%.
Note that the tested pair of iPhone 14 Pros had 1 TB of storage, which gives it a slight advantage over models with less capacity. However, the A16 chipset shows a significant performance boost over last year’s chip.
Still, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is the best points are in the 1,000,000 range, with the Asus ROG Phone 6 scoring 1,110,172 overall, 261,708 on the CPU test, and 469,592 on the GPU test. Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (which will most likely be built on the same node as 8+ Gen 1 and Apple A16) will be released before the end of the year.
