Apple’s Insane iPhone 13 Chipset — A15 Bionic
2 Avalanche high-performance cores. 4 Blizzard high-efficiency cores. Up to 5 Graphics Cores. 16 Neural Engine Cores.
Double the system cache to keep it all fed. But, increasingly, it’s the non-big compute core features that are the most interesting: New image signal processor, ISP, including Smart HDR4.
New video encode and decode blocks, including hardware acceleration for ProRes 422 video. New display engine for up to 120Hz adaptive refresh. New always-on touch co-processor to adapt that refresh in real-time.
All with the best battery life ever delivered on an iPhone… and maybe, just maybe, our first glimpse at what might be coming for M2 and the next generation of Apple Silicon Macs.
