Apple A15 Bionic benchmark leaked, outperforms GPU for Exynos 2200


With the Apple iPhone 13 series just around the corner, some wonder how the A15 Bionic chip would perform. Since it's an iOS device, it's harder to gauge that using apps like GFXBench. However, the benchmark does give us some clues on how it would perform.

According to @Frontron, the Apple A15 Bionic chip has an average of 198 FPS on GFXBench's Manhattan 3.1 benchmark. In comparison, the Exynos 2200 managed 170.7 FPS. As you can see, the A15 Bionic outperforms the Exynos 2200 and both chipsets outperform the older A14 Bionic. Note that Apple's chip was sampled in July 2021, so it should be the finalised production unit (or close to it).

However, not everything is perfect. The source claims that the A15 Bionic only managed framerates between 140-150 FPS in a repeat test, a performance dip that is most likely due to thermal throttling. It will still do better than the A14 Bionic though, which can only reach an average of 120 FPS in the same benchmark.

So, it's clear that the upcoming Apple A15 Bionic will handily beat its predecessor. But if there's not enough cooling, iOS devices equipped with it might experience thermal throttling. Would you still want to upgrade? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave for further updates on this.
