The iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max were announced earlier this week as the first phones on the market with a 3nm chipset. The Apple A17 Pro SoC features a 6-core processor with 2 performance cores alongside 4 efficiency units which Apple claims offer a 10% speed bump over the A16 Bionic.
Luckily for us, Geekbench now has benchmark scores for the iPhone 15 Pro series revealing some additional details on the A17 Pro chip as well as giving us a baseline to compare to last year’s A16 Bionic SoC.
iPhone 15 Pro (iPhone 16,1) managed 2,908 single-core points and a 7,238 multi-core score. For reference, last year’s iPhone 14 Pro scored in the 2,500 single-core and 6,400 multi-core ranges on Geekbench which translates to a 16% single-core score improvement and a 13% multi-core gain on the new iPhone 15 Pro.

Geekbench also revealed a 3.78GHz base frequency for the CPU performance cores inside the A17 Pro – taking the crown as the fastest performance cores on a mobile chipset. No word on the efficiency core clock speeds for now.

iPhone 15 Pro Max (iPhone 16,2) scored 2,846 single-core points and 7,024 multi-core points respectively. The new Geekbench listings also confirms 8GB RAM as previously revealed on Xcode. It will be interesting to see how the new 3nm A17 Pro chip fares in terms of efficiency given the new 3nm process.
