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 six-core processor with two performance cores, along with four efficiency units that Apple claims offer a 10% speed bump over the A16 Bionic.
Lucky for us, Geekbench now has benchmark scores for the iPhone 15 Pro series that reveal some additional details about the A17 Pro chip, as well as a baseline to compare to last year’s A16 Bionic SoC.
The iPhone 15 Pro (iPhone 16,1) scored 2,908 in single-core and 7,238 in multi-core score. For reference, last year’s iPhone 14 Pro scored 2,500 in single-core and 6,400 in multi-core on Geekbench, representing a 16% improvement in single-core scores and a 13% gain in multi-core scores over the new iPhone 15 Pro.

Geekbench also revealed a 3.78GHz base frequency for the CPU performance cores in the A17 Pro, giving it the crown as the fastest performance cores on a mobile chipset. No word on the clock speed of the efficiency cores for now.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max (iPhone 16.2) scored 2,846 in single-core points and 7,024 in multi-core points, respectively. The new Geekbench renders also confirm 8GB of 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.
