Apple has confirmed the A16 Bionic will be built upon new 4nm architecture, which should be even more efficient than the 5nm architecture from the preceding A15 Bionic chip. The A16 Bionic will also pack 16 billion transistors, a 6-core CPU and 50% more memory bandwidth. As a quick comparison. A15 packs 15 billion transistors since it has a marginally larger 5nm process node. The greater number of transistors generally results in a speedier performance.

Additionally, the A16 features a 6-core CPU, made up of 2 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores. The company claims the A16 Bionic is the most powerful smartphone chip in the world, supposedly being 40% faster than the competition.

Other notable upgrades include 50% more memory bandwidth, a new neural engine that can perform 17 trillion operations per second, and an Advanced ISP that will help to improve the quad‑pixel camera sensor.

Release date:

  • The A16 Bionic chip will debut inside the iPhone 14 Pro, which is set to launch on 16 September.
  • It will also be available inside the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which launches on the same day.
