The new mobile SoC king?

The new A15 Bionic chip is still based on the 5nm manufacturing process like the A14, but it now has 15 billion transistors up from 11.8 billion last year. It also goes with a 6-core CPU with 2x high-performance and 4x efficiency cores. The regular iPhone 13 and 13 mini has a 4-core GPU while the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max has a 5-core GPU.

Only the Kirin 9000 has more transistor count at 15.3 billion, but it doesn't mean that it is better.
Up to 50x better CPU performance than the competition

According to Apple, this has up to 50 percent faster CPU and 30 percent faster GPU performance than the competition.

It also highlights a faster Neural Engine that can perform up to 15.8 trillion operations per second. The firm also highlights a new ISP, new video encoder, new video decoder, wider lossy compression support, Secure Enclave, and built-in 5G support. Apple also notes that it now has double the system cache.
