If this leak is correct, the A17 Bionic chip of the iPhone 15 Pro will be a real beast: a power leap like we have rarely seen.
There are still 6 months left for Apple to present its new 2023 iPhone, however we have already seen many leaks about the iPhone 15, and today it has been possible to leak the first benchmark of the A17 Bionic chip that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will use. And the results are impressive if true.
A benchmark is a performance test that evaluates the power of different processors to know their power and be able to compare them. The next A17 Bionic chip aims high thanks to new 3nm architectureand these leaked data show that the rumors are real.
The A17 Bionic chip of the iPhone 15 Pro would have brutal power
The leak of this performance test of the chip A17 Bionic comes to us from Weibo, the main Chinese social network. Although we could not find that data on the Geekbench website. These are the results that the A17 Bionic chip obtains in Geekbench according to this leak:
- A17 Bionic chip (Geekbench 6): 3019 single core and 7860 multicore.
- A17 Bionic chip (Geekbench 5): 2317 single core and 6750 multicore.
If we compare it with the results it obtains in the current A16 Bionic chip of the iPhone 14 Pro, we see how We have a very important improvement in terms of performance. Also taking into account that it is expected that the A17 Bionic chip will also be more energy efficient. Here are the results the A16 Bionic chip gets:
- A16 Bionic chip (Geekbench 6): 2504 single core and 6314 multicore.
- A16 Bionic chip (Geekbench 5): 1872 single core and 5509 multicore.
I haven’t found the link on Geekbench site yet so take it wa grain of MSG. https://t.co/0QTMXiTd3m pic.twitter.com/wu0DqcWzBQ

As we can observe, the score difference is spectacular, both in the new version of Geekbench and in the old one. We are talking about an improvement of 500 points in the single-core test and practically 1500 more points in the multi-core test. Is more than double the improvement we saw between the A15 Bionic and the A16 Bionic.
It must also be taken into account that we are facing a very early leak and we could still see changes in the future. Nothing guarantees us that these data are real as we cannot find them on the Geekbench website. Also, perhaps it could be data from another Apple chip, such as the M3 processor, which will look a lot like the A17 Bionic, and which will be presented a little earlier.
