Apple’s new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are powered by the company’s new A16 Bionic chipset. It’s the successor to the A15 Bionic and it packs more transistors and new components to further improve the overall performance in key areas such as AI. The new A16 Bionic chip is manufactured on a 4nm process and it comes with as many as six high-performance and two efficiency cores.
According to Apple, the high-performance cores on the A16 Bionic use 30-percent less power compared to the A15 Bionic’s performance cores. The efficiency cores are also said to use less power, meaning you can expect the new iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max to be more power efficient. The new chip also has a powerful five-core GPU with up to 50-percent more memory bandwidth and a 16-core neural engine for accelerating machine learning workloads.Continue Reading
