Apple Inc. AAPL is extremely confident in the performance of its A17 Pro chipset and believes that the iPhone 15 Pro will be “the best game console”.
What Happened: Apple believes that the A17 Pro-powered iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will surpass both Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft Corp.’s MSFT Xbox gaming consoles.
In an interview with IGN, senior Apple executives highlighted the significant performance improvements brought by the A17 Pro chipset. They are confident that the iPhone 15 Pro will provide an exceptional gaming experience.
“It’s a powerhouse game console, but one that is in your pocket that you can take anywhere, game over different wireless networks, game on different titles, different ways that you get. I mean, it’s remarkable how it all comes together,” said Kaiann Drance, VP of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing.
While it is commonly said that the best camera or game console is the one you have with you, Apple executives no longer consider this an exception for the iPhone 15 Pro.
“I think they say the best game console is the one you have with you. It’s going to be the best game console,” said Jeremy Sandmel, Apple’s Senior Director of GPU Software.
Apple’s decision to give an interview to IGN also demonstrates the company’s focus on mobile gaming.
A Glimpse Into A17 Pro’s Performance: Last week, benchmarks on Geekbench revealed the significant performance gap between Apple’s latest flagship and Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
According to the benchmark results on Geekbench, the A17 Pro-powered iPhone 15 Pro outperformed the Samsung Galaxy S24, which is powered by Qualcomm Inc.’s QCOM Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, by a remarkable 30% margin.
The results indicate that the iPhone 15 Pro achieved over 30% higher single-core performance compared to the unreleased Galaxy S24 Plus, with a single-core score of 2,914 compared to the Galaxy S24 Plus’ 2,233 points.
