iPhone 14 Pro Up to 21 Percent Faster Than Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in Performance Benchmarks: Report

4 min read


iPhone 14 Pro — Apple’s flagship smartphone launched in 2022 — is reportedly faster in both single core and multi core performance than the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, recent benchmarks of both phones have revealed. The Galaxy S23 Ultra is one of the most premium smartphones that is equipped with a custom version of Qualcomm’s most powerful chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro is powered by Apple’s A16 Bionic SoC, which is the fastest chip on an iPhone today.

According to a report by CompareDial, the iPhone 14 Pro is up to 21 percent faster than the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra in single core performance, based on leaked Geekbench scores for the newly launched Samsung smartphone. The iPhone 14 Pro has a score of 1,874 in the single core test, while the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s score stood at 1,480. This suggests that Apple’s flagship has a comfortable lead over its Samsung counterpart.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro has a score of 5,384 in the multi score test, which is also higher than the Galaxy S23 Ultra that notched a score of 4,584. The benchmarks show that Apple has a smaller (nearly 15 percent) lead over Samsung in multi-core performance compared to the single-core tests.

A recent report by GSMArena shows similar results for the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which scored higher than the Xiaomi 12S Ultra, Xiaomi 12 Pro, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra, but lower than the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro in single-core tests. In the multi-core tests, the Galaxy S23 Ultra was second only to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, beating the handsets from Nubia and Xiaomi, along with its predecessor.

Unlike its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S23 is powered by a Snapdragon chipset in all markets, which means a weaker Exynos variant will not be available this year. The Samsung Galaxy S22 with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC and the iPhone 13 Pro Max with an A15 Bionic chipset had multi-core scores of 3,433 and 4,647, respectively, in benchmarks run by PCMag last year.

However, it is worth noting that benchmarks are only one part of the equation, and day-to-day performance depends on hardware and software optimisation. It also appears that Qualcomm’s flagship chipsets are beginning to close in on Apple’s in-house chipsets in terms of performance, but it remains to be seen whether Apple extends its lead later this year with its next-generation of chipsets that are expected to be more powerful and efficient than their predecessors.

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 series of smartphones was launched earlier this week and the South Korean firm’s high-end handsets have seen a few upgrades across all three models.

Source link A new report claims that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro, which will potentially be launched by Apple later this year, could have up to 21 percent higher performance compared to Samsung’s most current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

According to technology website 9to5Mac, citing sources familiar with the matter, the new iPhone 14 Pro could have a 30 percent increase in performance compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 13 Pro.

The report suggests that the performance boost on the two devices is largely due to their respective central processing units, or CPUs, and graphics processing units, or GPUs. Apple is said to be using its new A15 Bionic silicon for the iPhone 14 Pro. The new chipset is said to be based on the 5nm process node and feature a big.LITTLE design, which combines energy-efficient cores with high-performance cores for better performance and efficiency.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is powered by the Exynos 2100 chipset. This chip features a more powerful octa-core CPU based on the 5nm process node, and a Mali-G78 MP14 GPU, which is said to be slightly less powerful than the A15 Bionic.

Benchmark tests conducted by 9to5Mac’s sources showed that the iPhone 14 Pro had a significantly higher single-core score compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The iPhone was also better at multi-core tasks and had a higher score in the 3DMark gaming test. Overall, the report claims that the new iPhone is up to 21 percent faster than the S23 Ultra in terms of performance.

It is important to note that these results are based on the current prototypes of the iPhone 14 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra. The actual numbers could differ when the two devices are launched later this year.
