Apple has equipped its new iPhone 13 Pro Max with an improved A15 Bionic processor. According to the company, it is three times more productive than competitors’ processors. The blogger decided to check if Apple was right in their assessments and tested the performance of the new product with the flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
At the same time, in the Geekbench single-core test, the performance of the A15 processor was 70% better than that of the rival Snapdragon 888 in all scenarios.
But in a real test (opening applications, performing standard tasks), the devices performed ambiguously. Because some applications were faster on the iPhone 13 Pro Max, others on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The differences in speed were minor.
In video rendering with Premiere Rush, the new Apple outperformed the competitor by about 60%. We tested processing 4K video with a refresh rate of 60 frames per second.
Despite the differences in the amount of RAM (iPhone 13 Pro Max has 6 GB, Galaxy S21 Ultra has 12 GB), iPhone 13 Pro Max kept in memory and downloaded more applications such as TikTok, Subway Surfer, PUBG, Asphalt 9 and others.
The performance gap only seems significant if you’re doing some resource intensive tasks.
