Apple A16 GPU 5-Core

Apple A16 GPU 5-Core

The Apple A16 Bionic 5-core GPU is an integrated graphics card in the Apple A16 Bionic SoCs (used in the 2022 Apple iPhone 16 Pro models). According to Apple, the iGPU offers a 50% increased memory bandwidth thanks to the switch from LPDDR4X to LPDDR5.

In first benchmarks, the A16 GPU is around 19 percent faster than the previous generation (A15 5-core GPU) and therefore currently the fastest graphics card for smartphones (e.g. clearly faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1).

The A16 is produced in the new 4nm process at TSMC and should be very energy efficient.
