Apple A14 Bionic

Over the last few years, Apple is leading in the smartphones chipsets market, but in 2022 the company has gone so far with the record-breaking new chipsets. We’ve seen some amazing chipsets like Apple A13, Apple A15 that made into Top 5 the AnTuTu 9 benchmarks, Apple A13 that was launched in Apple iPhone 11 Series smartphones. Let’s start with the benchmarks.

AnTuTu 9:

CPU 185695
GPU 285023
Memory 118389
UX 131689
Total score 724625

Apple A14 Bionic shows the best AnTuTu 9 scores. We can see the big jump in GPU performance. The total performance of the GPU is 285023, which is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The CPU also shows one of the best scores. It is 185695 which is also faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The memory scores also show a significant boost. Apple A14 Bionic memory is faster than Apple A13 Bionic, Apple A13x. The memory scores are 118389. The Ux is also showing one of the best performances. It is 131689 which is faster than Apple A13 Bionic, Apple A13x. Total scores are above 724625. The total scores of this chipset will depend on which smartphone is using this chipset with which type of ram. Apple A14 Bionic is considerably gaining a performance boost and beating last-gen Apple A13 Bionic processor in the iPhone category. This processor can be seen in iPhone 12 Series. In the Flagship segment, it’s the best processor for gaming, camera, battery, display, and for everything.

Geekbench 5:

Single-Core Score 1607
Multi-Core Score 4115

The single-core scores show the best performance in this smartphone mid-range category lineup. The single cores scores are 1607. And the multi-core scores are 4115 which is also beating every chipset in the multi-core performance in this range. iPhone is known for its CPU performance. Even it’s an old chipset but it’s still fast enough to beat some of the latest chipsets.


Architecture 2x 3.1 GHz – Firestorm
4x 1.8 GHz – Icestorm
Cores 6
Frequency 3100 MHz
Instruction set ARMv8.5-A
L2 cache 8 MB
Process 5 nanometers
Transistor count 11.8 billion

Apple A14 Bionic lunched with the two big cores of Firestorm which are ultra-high performance cores that are clocked on 3.1GHz. The other 4 cores are based on Icestorm which is power efficiency cores. The Firestorm also has the best speeds and good set instruction architecture. There are total of 6 cores with a boost clock of 3.1GHz. Apple A14 Bionic has the latest set instruction architecture. It is considerably fast and strong enough to beat some of the latest and powerful Chipsets. Apple A14 Bionic is fabricated on 5Nm. This means Apple A14 Bionic will be power efficient and will consume less battery and will produce less heat. It is fast with the big two Firestorms. It is also L2 cache is also 8MB which is a lot faster than the other processor in the market right now. The TDP is 6Watts which means the processor will be best with the battery management. In this Apple A14 Bionic, the CPU performance is very fast and very efficient. There is 11.8 Billion transistor in this Apple A14 Bionic which is more than enough for a mobile chipset. This processor has incredible speeds and good optimization.


PU name Apple GPU
Execution units 4

 Apple GPU is the new architecture that they are using in the Apple A14 Bionic. The GPU is also manufactured using the 5nm technology. Which means it will also be power efficient. The name of the GPU is Apple Custom GPU. This is the fastest GPU in this lineup. The Apple A14 Bionic is fast enough to handle games like FREE FIRE, PUBG MOBILE. The GPU score is faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 which means there will be a smooth gaming experience on this chipset.


Memory type LPDDR4X
Max bandwidth 42.7 Gbit/s
Max size 6 GB

 Apple A14 Bionic uses the new LPDDR4x ram with the memory frequency of 4200MHz and uses the bus of 4×16. The ram size may change according to the smartphones. The memory frequency is also going to be changed according to smartphones. The max memory bandwidth is 42.7Gbit/s which is also faster than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 which was used in Samsun Galaxy S21 Ultra. The max memory size is 6GB. This chipset cannot support more ram than the size of 6GB.


Neural processor NPU Neural Engine
Storage type NVMe
Max display resolution 2732 x 2048
Video capture 4K at 60FPS
Video playback 4K at 60FPS

Apple A14 Bionic uses its own Neural Engine which is fast with AI calculations and can be used to accelerate video analysis, voice recognition, and image processing. Apple A14 Bionic uses the NVMe which is fast. This gives you fast read and writes speeds.

Apple A14 Bionic have the maximum display support of QuadHD+ and can support the 60Hz refresh rate with the Super Amoled. The video capture is kept on 4k at 60FPS and the video playback is also 4k at 60FPS. There is no 8k support on this Apple A14 Bionic. It is a bit of shame to see there is no 8k support on a 2021 Flagship processor.


5G support Yes
Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth 5.0

Apple A14 Bionic has 5G support. The Apple A14 Bionic also comes with the Wi-Fi 6 and the Bluetooth version of 5.0. This will give you better signals and better speeds. Apple A14 Bionic uses the Snapdragon X60 modem. Which is not fast as the X65 but it gives you good speeds.

Phones with A14 Bionic:

1. Apple iPhone 12 737610
2. Apple iPhone 12 Pro 724625
3. Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max 718999
4. Apple iPhone 12 mini 697744

Apple A14 Bionic is launched in these 4 smartphones. As you can see these 4 smartphone scores are different. Apple iPhone 12 is at the top. Which is a considerably great phone with this chipset. The Apple iPhone 12 pro is a good smartphone for pretty much everything for gaming, for the camera, for normal use, its packet with amazing features.

Gaming Experience:

PUBG Mobile 60 FPS
Smartphone Apple iPhone 12

The gaming experience on this chipset is going to be faster than the Apple A13 Bionic. This chipset is combined with the 2 Big Firestorm cores and which boost the performance. With 2 Big Firestorm, there are going to be a little issue of overheating. The frequency of this chipset is 3.1GHz, which is good for long-term gaming. This chipset also supports the LPDDR4x ram. This means there will be no issues of using this chipset on a long-term gaming session. This chipset also supports a 60Hz refresh rate. This will help in smooth performance with low latency. This chipset is can play PUBG MOBILE at 60FPS, and other games at high FPS as well, this is because of the GPU.
