Theo GizChina, iPhone 14 Pro currently has a score of 978,147, while iPhone 14 Pro Max has a score of 972,936. Basically, the A16 Bionic has allowed Apple to significantly enhance the performance of the iPhone 14 Pro models. Even so, the power of the A16 Bionic is still not comparable to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, at least based on the AnTuTu test.
AnTuTu scores for iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max
The highest score of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 at over 1,000,000 points, of which Asus ROG Phone 6 scored 1,110,173 overall, 261,708 in the CPU test and 469,592 in the GPU test. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip that will be released later this year promises to provide even higher chip power.
Talking more about the A16 Bionic, AnTuTu scores show that the performance of the chip when compared to the A15 Bionic has increased by 17% for the CPU and 28% for the GPU. Reportedly, 28% is the most significant GPU performance improvement of the Apple A series of chips in recent years.
The CPU component on the A16 Bionic still comes with 2 ultra-fast CPU cores (large core) and 4 energy-efficient CPU cores (small core), while the GPU has 5 cores. Apple A16 is manufactured using 4nm technology, the transistor density has increased by 6.6%, while the frequency has increased by 7% and the number of operations per second has increased by 8%. Apple claims the large and small cores of the A16 Bionic can reduce power consumption for a performance equivalent of 20%.

Note that the tested iPhone 14 Pro pair is equipped with 1 TB of internal memory which gives it an advantage over models with lower memory capacity.
Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are more interesting than their predecessors thanks to a number of major improvements, including the new A16 Bionic chip, 48MP camera, and Dynamic Island. These products will be available from September 16, with prices starting at $999.
