At yesterday’s event, Apple presented, as expected, the new iPhone 13. A phone with the odd novelty, one of the most important being the power of the phone. A power attributed to new A15 Bionic chip capable of doing such spectacular things as exceptional video recording with unsurpassed quality. It is not only that chip, which makes the differences between the Pro model and the “normal” model are abysmal.
Although the company markets the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro with the same processor, they have some slight differences in terms of performance. In fact, the GPU of the A15 chip found in the iPhone 13 Pro models is more powerful than in the normal iPhone 13 models. This A15 Bionic chip is installed in the entire line of iPhone 13. Apple says that the new CPU It has two cores for high performance and four cores for energy efficiency. While they are likely to be the same on both models, graphics performance is different between “normal” and Pro models.
The A15 Bionic chip GPU in the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 has four cores, and Apple says it offers 30% better graphics performance compared to the “competition.” As for the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the GPU has an additional core for a total of five cores they offer. up to 50% more performance compared to the other models released by the competition.
It is very logical to think that these differences may be related to the addition of compatibility with the ProRes video codec. This decoder not only takes up a lot of internal storage space, hence the new model with 1TB capacity, but also requires a lot of use from the GPU.
We will have to wait for the tests to be carried out as the orders made arrive. Starting next week, we assume that there will be movement and comparisons.
