iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max benchmarks reveal improvements in GPU performance for Apple’s two flagship smartphones launched earlier this month. This year, Apple equipped the two Pro models with the A17 Pro chip, while the regular model is equipped with the A16 Bionic chip found in last year’s iPhone 14 Pro. Apple said that the 3nm A17 Pro chip is equipped with 6 GPU cores, which is up to 20% faster than the previous generation products while improving efficiency.

My smart price has publish GFXBench conducted benchmark tests on three phones in the iPhone 15 series of smartphones: iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPhone 15 Plus. In some tests, the A17 Pro chip appears to slightly exceed the GPU performance improvements Apple claimed at its September 12 “Wonderlust” event.

Compared with the iPhone 15 Plus equipped with the A16 Bionic chip, the iPhone 15 Pro rendered more frames in the Aztec Ruins High Tier Offscreen test. According to the report, in benchmark tests, the iPhone 15 Pro model rendered approximately 8 more frames per second than the iPhone 15 Plus. According to reports, in the Normal Tier Offscreen test, the Pro model rendered 10 more frames per second than the iPhone 14 Pro launched last year.

At the same time, the Manhattan 3.1 Offscreen test shows that the A17 Pro chip is about 48fps faster than the iPhone 15 Plus equipped with the A16 Bionic chip. This equates to a nearly 31.5% improvement over the previous generation chipset, meaning the new iPhone 15 Pro models may even have higher GPU performance than Apple claimed in the demo.

Benchmarks are synthetic tests and only tell half of a smartphone or computer’s performance – there are several other factors that can affect performance, such as ambient temperature and software optimization.

According to previous reports, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are equipped with 8GB of RAM, which is the first time Apple has increased the RAM capacity of a smartphone since the launch of the iPhone 13 Pro in 2021. It doesn’t usually reveal the RAM amount or battery capacity of its smartphones, but these are usually revealed through benchmarks and teardowns of the phones weeks after the device debuts.
