Apple has officially presented its iPhone 14 series, with its new internal chip: Apple A16 Bionic. The American company has been widely praised for its new SoC, ensuring it is the best chip in a smartphone, all with controlled power consumption.

Geekbench benchmark shared by a popular leaker The Ice World it gives us the first glimpse of the capabilities of this A16 Bionic. Finally he gets it a score of 1887 in single-core and 5455 in multi-core. Horrible performance that dwarfs the Android competition: no Qualcomm Snapdragon, MediaTek, Samsung Exynos or Google Tensor SoC has ever achieved such feats, at least not on a phone sold to the general public.

For comparison, note that Geekbench lists the Lenovo Legion Y90, with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 as the most powerful Android smartphone in single-core, with a score of 1190. In most variants, it is the realme GT Neo 3 with its MediaTek. Dimensity 8100 which is favored by the service, reaching a score of 3872. In both cases, we are far from the performance provided by the iPhone 14 Pro with the A16 chip.

On this generation of iPhone, only the Pro models benefit from the new A16 SoC. Therefore, the standard iPhone 14 remains with the A15 chip, which is available on the entire iPhone 13 series. The A16 Bionic is still written by TSMC in 4nm finesse. Its CPU has six cores, including two high-performance cores with less than 20% utilization. Apple also emphasized on the very low power consumption of the other four cores, which focus on efficiency. It remains to be seen if in addition to being powerful beasts, the iPhone 14 Pro will also be champions of freedom thanks to the A16 Bionic.
