Apple A15 GPU 4-Core

Apple A15 GPU 4-Core

The Apple A15 Bionic 4-core GPU is an integrated graphics card in the entry level A15 Bionic SoCs. It is used e.g., in the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini. 

Compared to the older Apple A14 GPU, it offers only slight performance improvements but its still faster than the fastest graphics cards in Android based smartphones (e.g. Adreno 660).

It is manufactured in the new 5nm process and therefore should be very energy efficient.
