In the early morning of the 13th, Apple officially launched its latest generation of iPhone products, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. All three new products are equipped with powerful A12 bionic chips. Apple said the A12 is very smart and powerful. It is a groundbreaking 7-nanometer chip with a new generation of neural network engines, while the high-performance CPU core is up to 15% higher and GPU graphics performance is up to 50%.
What is the A12 increase in Apple’s mouth? How is it compared to the previous generation? On September 15th, Ann Bunny, which focused on chip benchmarking in China, first published the running scores of the A12 Fusion chip and the memory capacity of each new iPhone model by mining its own back-end database.
Ann Bunny said that the results of the first A12 Fusion processor have been released. The specific model comes from the iPhone Xs, with a total score of more than 360,000! This achievement is the highest score in the current Antu Bunny running database, leading Qualcomm's current flagship chip Xiaolong 845 close to 70,000 points.
Since the Android camp has no core to play, how about comparing Apple's own previous generation A11 chip? Ann Bunny said that compared to the iPhone 8 Plus with A11 processor, the iPhone Xs' CPU performance increased by nearly 1/3, the GPU score nearly doubled, the UX score increased by 50%, and the memory score increased by nearly 20%. The 360 million points of terror.
In addition, before the release of the A12 chip's running scores, Ann Bunny also queried the next-generation iPhone with more configuration information through the back-end database. The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are equipped with 4GB of running memory, while the iPhone Xr is 3GB.
In contrast, the previous generation of iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X were equipped with 3GB of memory, while the iPhone 8 was 2GB of memory.
In any case, as Apple said, there are two main advantages to the A12 chip as a whole. The first is the GPU graphics processing unit, and the second is the next-generation neural network engine. The latter is the focus of Apple's key publicity at this conference, claiming that the new eight-core design of the new generation of neural network engine can perform 50 billion operations per second, while A11 previously had 600 billion operations per second.
