Apple A16 Bionic will outperform its predecessor A15!
For Apple A16, GPU performance improvement may be marginal, but some better efficiency is still welcomed. And before the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is available, A16 is still hands down the fastest mobile SoC. pic.twitter.com/AbCHAgnTWg

The A16 Bionic debuted with the iPhone 14 series and passed various benchmark performance tests. Current performance tests have tried to examine how much better the new chipset is compared to its predecessor and other flagship chips like the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Testing was done by Golden Reviewer, and the A16 Bionic scored 3,359 on 3DMark’s Wildlife Extreme.
The results are higher than any other chipset tested. However, its 444.1 efficiency score is lower than MediaTek’s Dimensity 8100 and Dimensity 9000 chipsets. The A16 Bionic is also about 20% more powerful and also slightly more efficient than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Compared to the A15 Bionic, the New Apple chipset was only 5% more powerful and 20% more efficient. Several other benchmark tests identified the A16 Bionic as the most powerful mobile chip in terms of GPU. Performance measurements show a significant improvement in efficiency of the A16 Bionic over the A15 Bionic. However, in terms of raw power, there is only minimal improvement.
