Gegli news - How much does the A16 chip performance improve in the iPhone 14 Pro series? -
This year, Apple will only equip the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro models with the new A16 chip, and now it is predicted how much this chip will be upgraded.According to the MacWorld website, the A16 chip is likely to be made with third-generation 5nm lithography called N4P. This naturally means that we can expect some increase in chip power, but this increase will be limited. N4P will be about 11% better in terms of power, 22% in terms of energy efficiency and 6% in terms of density than 5nm lithography N5.
On the other hand, this chipset will probably be equipped with a faster memory. It was said in a report that the iPhone 14 Pro will use LPDDR5 instead of LPDDR4. Apple had previously used these memories in the M1 Pro and Max chips. The bandwidth of this memory is about 50% more than the previous generation and it performs better in terms of energy consumption
The possibility of supporting ARMv9 has also been raised, but it does not seem that this change will significantly increase the power of this chip. All in all, we should probably expect a 25-30% increase in GPU performance
One of the possible features of the iPhone 14 Pro, which will require all the power of the chip, is a 48-megapixel camera sensor with support for 8K video recording. Famous Apple analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Jeff Po expect this sensor to be the main camera of the next-generation iPhone. Therefore, it can be said that the majority of the excess power of this chip is dedicated to image processing and artificial intelligence
Although the Cupertinos are developing their own modem, the product is not yet ready for release and they still have to use Qualcomm's modem. The A16 chipset will most likely come with the Snapdragon X65 modem, but it is not yet clear whether the regular iPhone 14 models will also receive this new modem
Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US$365.8 billion in 2021) and as of June 2022, it is the world's biggest company by market capitalization, the fourth-largest personal computer vendor by unit sales and second-largest mobile phone manufacturer. It is one of the Big Five American information technology companies, alongside Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft.
Apple was founded as Apple Computer Company on April 1, 1976, by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne to develop and sell Wozniak's Apple I personal computer. It was incorporated by Jobs and Wozniak as Apple Computer, Inc. in 1977 and the company's next computer, the Apple II, became a best seller. Apple went public in 1980, to instant financial success. The company developed computers featuring innovative graphical user interfaces, including the original Macintosh, announced in a critically acclaimed advertisement, "1984", directed by Ridley Scott. By 1985, the high cost of its products and power struggles between executives caused problems. Wozniak stepped back from Apple amicably and pursued other ventures, while Jobs resigned bitterly and founded NeXT, taking some Apple employees with him.
As the market for personal computers expanded and evolved throughout the 1990s, Apple lost considerable market share to the lower-priced duopoly of the Microsoft Windows operating system on Intel-powered PC clones (also known as "Wintel"). In 1997, weeks away from bankruptcy, the company bought NeXT to resolve Apple's unsuccessful operating system strategy and entice Jobs back to the company. Over the next decade, Jobs guided Apple back to profitability through a number of tactics including introducing the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad to critical acclaim, launching "Think different" and other memorable advertising campaigns, opening the Apple Store retail chain, and acquiring numerous companies to broaden the company's product portfolio. When Jobs resigned in 2011 for health reasons, and died two months later, he was succeeded as CEO by Tim Cook.
Apple became the first publicly traded U.S. company to be valued at over $1 trillion in August 2018, then $2 trillion in August 2020, and most recently $3 trillion in January 2022. The company receives criticism regarding the labor practices of its contractors, its environmental practices, and its business ethics, including anti-competitive practices and materials sourcing. Nevertheless, the company has a large following and enjoys a high level of brand loyalty. It is ranked as one of the world's most valuable brands.
