Apple continues to show its A15 Bionic chip is future-proof. New benchmarks conducted by PCMag indicate that Samsung’s latest Galaxy S22 Ultra still can not keep up with the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 Pro.
While PCMag notes that the Galaxy S22 is the “most powerful Android phone” right now on the planet, its benchmark results still fall behind the iPhone 13 Pro. In Geekbench 5 tests, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is powered by Qualcomm’s New Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, scored 448 in machine learning testing, 1232 in single-core testing, and 3433 in the multi-core test.
On the flip side, the iPhone 13 Pro Max scored 948 in machine learning tests, 1735 in single-core testing, and 4647 in multi-core tests.
PCMag notes that this is a noticeable improvement for Qualcomm over last year’s Snapdragon 888, but it’s still not enough to catch up to Apple’s Bionic Chips.
“There is definitely an improvement from last year’s Snapdragon 888 to this year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. We saw a 13% rise in Geekbench single-core scores and a 9% rise in Geekbench multi-core scores. On the GFXBench graphics benchmark, we saw an improvement of 20% or more depending on circumstances.”
Meanwhile, in web benchmarking using Basemark Web, PCMag tests found that the Galaxy S22 series performed 8% better than S21, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max still doubled the Samsung score:
“On Basemark Web, a comprehensive web benchmark, the Galaxy S22 series scored about 8% better than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. But the iPhone 13 Pro Max got double any Samsung model’s score, as we’ve seen in the past, because of the differences between Apple’s Safari browser and the Google Chrome browser on Android phones.”
