iPhone 15 Pro Max has the best mobile hardware under the hood. The new A17 Pro chipset powering the premium iPhone 15 series model has a lot of upgrades which surpasses the capability of the A16 Bionic which itself is quite powerful. But now, we have data to prove the prowess of the A17 Pro chip from Apple which can easily match the likes of M-series Mac silicone used by the company.
The A17 Pro powering the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max has been put through the AnTuTu benchmark tests recently, and the results were unsurprisingly higher. The A17 Pro was able to score 1,641,883 which was only beaten by the Apple M1 chip that was launched on the MacBooks and iPads.
In fact, last year’s A16 Bionic scored 1,474,011 on the same benchmark test, and the only Android device to come close to these numbers was the Red Magic 8 Pro+ which got 1,632,859 points. All these numbers make it clear that the new A17 Pro chip is the most powerful phone hardware in the market as of today.
Apple is already using TSMC’s 3nm process to make the A17 Pro chip which seems to be giving it the performance boost. However, Qualcomm could definitely try to change that narrative later this year when it is expected to announce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset which could also be made on the 3nm process.
Apple talked about drastic improvement in performance with the A17 Pro chipset over the A16 Bionic and these test results vouch for those claims. The company is offering the A16 Bionic chip on the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models and most likely the A17 Pro will trickle down to the vanilla variants of the iPhone 16 series next year.
Benchmark tests are not the best way to judge any hardware’s performance but these numbers do give us an idea about the power packed inside the new iPhone Pro Max model.
