When it comes to Arm-based chip designs, Apple holds the position of giving some of the best performers in the market and its chips are at the top of the performance heap when it comes to performance-per-watt.
It was during the time of late Steve Jobs that the company decided to pursue custom in-house chip designs to give itself a competitive edge and acquired PA Semi and Intrinsity to help make this happen.
And now, Apple’s mobile chips have become so powerful that it has been able to ditch long-term partnerships with Intel’s chips and start fitting them to its MacBooks and Macs. And we all know how amazing the M1 chipset is.
The latest of its mobile chip designs, the A15 Bionic, has three variations and has also found its way into the iPad mini 6, the iPhone 13, and the iPhone 13 Pro, which gets the most powerful version.
According to Geekbench 5 results, the chip delivers a single-core score of around 1760 and a multi-core score of around 4870. coupled with the right amount of RAM, the A15 Bionic could easily power a device like the MacBook Air while even running pro-Mac apps.
In fresh news, a Twitter user @BureauRussell posted a Geekbench run of the iPhone 13 Pro Max in low power mode and the results are shocking. And on average, iPhone 13 Pro Max can output a single-core score of 726 and a multi-core score of 3507.
As we know, Apple deactivates the two high-performance ‘Avalanche’ cores in A15 Bionic when in low power mode, and the chip only runs on its four high-efficiency ‘Blizzard’ cores. According to Geekbench 5 diagnostic data, in this mode, the chip clocked at just 1.37 GHz. No matter what Apple is using to extend its battery life, the performance of the device remains excellent.
