Apple’s A16 Bionic chip is coming later this year, this is what is known so far
We are approaching the release of the iPhone 14 series. This year, the distinctions between the ordinary and Pro versions are expected to grow.
One of the biggest distinctions between the phones will be their processors. The ordinary iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max (iPhone 14 Plus) will ship with the A15 Bionic processor from last year, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will ship with the new A16 Bionic chip. Now we discover his initial characteristics.
The newest iPhone 13 series, which debuted last autumn, has a processor that differs somewhat between the standard and Pro versions. The standard versions feature GPUs with four cores, while the Pro variants have GPUs with five cores. Additionally, standard versions use 4GB of RAM, while Pro variants feature 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM. This year, though, the disparity will be substantially higher.
It is said that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will ship with the 5-core A15 Bionic CPU and 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM, whilst the Pro variants will ship with the A16 Bionic chip.
Macworld has recently revealed information on the next processor. Thus, it is said that it will be developed using the TSCM N4P procedure. The new A16 Bionic chip is anticipated to have 18 to 20 billion transistors, compared to the A15’s 15 billion. It also indicates that the switch to ARMv9 will result in enhancements.
The processor may provide a modest 15 percent performance increase overall. The Pro variants of the iPhone 14 series are said to have a new kind of LPDDR5 RAM, although both models will keep 6GB of RAM.
Apple is expected to increase its GPU by 25 to 30 percent compared to its predecessor. Additionally, the chip will offer IPS improvement.
