Data from the popular AnTuTu benchmark shows that the Apple A16 Bionic processor, used in the latest iPhone smartphones, significantly outperforms the previous generation A15 Bionic chip in terms of graphics unit (GPU) performance.Image source: ArpleThe A16 Bionic is the \"heart\" of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus use the A15 Bionic.The processors have identical architecture: they are six processing cores (two performance and four energy-efficient), a five-core GPU node and a 16-core neural processor engine (Neural Engine).Image source: ApTuTuIn the AnTuTu test the iPhone 14 Pro smartphone scored a total of 978,147 points, the iPhone 14 Pro Max model - 972,936 points.This is approximately 19% more compared to the iPhone 13 series with the A15 Bionic chip.The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models compared to their predecessors show a performance increase of CPU cores by 17%, memory - by 10%.As for the graphics node, its performance rose by more than a quarter - by 28%.Image source: ApTuTuAdd that in the test AnTuTu used the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max versions, equipped with a 1 Tbyte flash drive.The devices carry 6 GB of RAM.
Intel Alder Lake system tested with Windows 11 and different Linux - Microsoft OS was slowest in 72% of tests
Phoronix has conducted a performance comparison test of the Intel Alder Lake platform with different operating systems.It turns out that under different Linux distributions the computer is in most cases faster than under the latest Windows 11.The tests were done with an Intel Core i9-12900K processor, ASUS ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi motherboard, 32GB (2x16GB) of DDR5-6000 memory, 500GB WD Black SN850 SSD and an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card.The configuration is one of the best by today's standards, able to handle both high resolution games and working applications, as well as working with content.For the performance comparison, Windows 11 Pro, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS on the stable Linux 5.18 kernel, and Intel Clear Linux version 36580 were chosen.Image source: phoronix.comTestors ran a total of 103 tests, with Clear Linux being the clear victor, scoring maximum points in 55 cases (53.4%), second with 19 wins (18.4%) to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, third place went to Windows 11 with 16 top scores (15.5%) and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS with Linux 5.18 only 13 wins (12.6%).Image source: phoronix.com Image source: phoronix.com Of course, a benchmark is not a benchmark, and for most average users of flagship chips, gaming tests can be decisive.On the other hand, it would be a mistake to ignore other tasks that determined the scoring in the test series: virtualization, data compression, rendering and video encoding - in all these cases, Linux family systems were faster.Taking the cumulative result for all tests, Ubuntu 22.04 LTS was 4 percent faster than Windows 11, and in the case of Clear Linux the gap widened to 8 percent.And Windows 11 was the worst performer in 72% of tests.
AMD Radeon RX 6300M mobile graphics made a mark in Geekbench 5 - about on par with the GeForce MX450
AMD announced the budget Radeon RX 6300M mobile graphics card in January, but computers with it were not yet on the market.It looks like that is about to change.This gas pedal marked in the Geekbench 5 test, where it showed relatively weak performance, performing almost on par with the GeForce MX450 - the entry-level graphics card of the last generation from NVIDIA.Image source: AMDAMD Radeon RX 6300M - entry-level graphics card on the RDNA 2 architecture.It offers 12 processing units and 768 stream processors on a Navi 24 chip.The GDDR6 video memory is only 2 GB and Infinity Cache capacity is 8 MB.On top of that, AMD has significantly lowered GPU clock speed to 1512 MHz, but all these measures helped to achieve the power consumption of only 25W or even lower.The same number of cores are present in the integrated Radeon 680M in Ryzen 6000 processors, though, with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz - the only advantage of the discrete adapter turns out to be faster GDDR6.Image source: geekbench.comIn the Geekbench 5 database the video card Radeon RX 6300M appeared in the HP Zhan 99 Pro G9 monoblock with a desktop Intel Core i7-12700 chip (Alder Lake) and 16 GB of RAM.Not the most standard combination of desktop processor and mobile graphics.In the OpenCL test, the graphics card scored 30,044 points, and another 24,371 points in Vulkan.For today's graphics this is quite a modest result, because approximately the same figures in the NVIDIA MX450 previous generation: exactly 29,000 for OpenCL and even superior young competitor 24,688 points for Vulkan.Image source: geekbench.comWell, it is too early to draw conclusions, because the results in Geekbench 5 does not always reflect the performance of graphics cards in games - perhaps in gaming tests disposition will change.
AMD will unveil Radeon RX 7000 graphics cards on the latest RDNA 3 architecture graphics processors tonight. The start of the presentation,...
