New Apple A18 Pro 2024 Chip to offer powerful on-device AI performance

Apple A18 ProApple is a famous technology and chip manufacturing company. It will appear with an advanced chip A18 Pro for its newly invented iPhone, the iPhone 16 Pro model. According to Jeff Pu, Apple’s supply chain investment analyst, the upcoming next-generation A18 Pro chip will feature a larger die size to boost artificial intelligence performance for the iPhone 16 Pro model.

Increasing the die area of a chip means it can accommodate more transistors and specialized components, which generally allows for improved performance. On the other hand, as the die size increases, so does the risk of defects and design errors. It can also affect energy efficiency and heat dissipation.

Also, in a research note with Hong Kong-based investment firm Haitong International Securities, Pu added that the A18 Pro chip will have a 6-core GPU, equal to or better than the A17 Pro chip in the iPhone 15 Pro chip.

Generative AI & 6-Core GPU:

We have only tried to mention it here as far as we know, according to published rumours. Let’s know the details. Below are the features that the iPhone 16 Pro can get on iOS 18-Pro. Features such as Grid, Spotlight, Apple Music, Health, Messages, Numbers, Pages, Keynote, Shortcuts and more.

The apps are also rumoured to include new generative AI features. However, it is rumoured that Apple may borrow some AI features from other famous tech companies like Google, Baidu, etc.

The upcoming iPhone 16 Pro model will feature an upgraded Neural Engine with significant core updates. Also, according to Pu, the larger die size will be related to the neural engine, which will power the AI features produced on the device. A 16-core neural engine is likely to be used. It has a 2x faster neural engine compared to the A16 bionic chip.

The A18 Pro is expected to significantly improve the graphics capabilities of the previous A17 Pro chip. Apple says this new 6-core GPU is up to 20% faster and more energy efficient than the GPU on the A16 Bionic chip. It will stick with a 6-core GPU for the A18 Pro chip, so the graphics improvements for the iPhone 16 Pro model this year will increase.

Apple A18 Pro Expected Benchmark Score Overview:

According to a post on X by user Nguyen Phi Hung, the Hexacore A18 Pro chip reportedly scored 3,500 points in the single-core test and 8,200 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench 6.

Apple A18 Pro Release Date:

Apple is rumoured to release its next iPhone 16 series in September 2024. It has a new design, improved camera features and a new chip that will debut as Apple A18 Pro in late 2024.
