A few hours ago, Apple officially unveiled its latest iPhone 13 series. This new flagship series comes with the latest Bionic A15 processor. The Bionic A15 processor integrates up to 15 billion transistors, an increase of 3.5 billion relative to the previous generation with 11.5 billion. This means that the Bionic A15 is a 30% increase but the manufacturing process remains TSMC’s 5nm process.
The CPU part is still 6 cores which include 2 high-performance large cores, and 4 high-efficiency small cores. According to the company, this chip is 50% ahead of competing products. The GPU has been upgraded from 4 cores to 6 cores, and Apple also says it is 30% ahead of competing products. However, it is important to note that only the Bionic A15 on the iPad mini has 6 acres. The iPhone 13 Pro series has 5 cores while the iPhone 13/13 mini has only 4 cores.
Furthermore, the system cache capacity is now double, and there is a new ISP image signal processor, a new display engine, a new video encoder, a new video decoder, a new security module, and a new lossless compression algorithm. Naturally, the neural engine must be upgraded. The computing power per second has reached 15.8 trillion times, which is 34% faster than the previous generation. It can run powerful CoreML and AR modeling smoothly.
