Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this year. One of them, which we think is the iPhone X 2018, has been spotted on Geekbench.
The new iPhones will be powered by a new SoC known as the Apple A12. The Geekbench listing of the new iPhone (benchmarked as iPhone 11,2) confirms the newer SoC to be D321AP which is different from the iPhone X’ D22AP.
The CPU benchmark scores are not significantly different from the A11’s but that may change after some optimizations. However, there are some other big changes. The L1 cache is now larger at 128KB and the base frequency is higher at 2.49GHz, compared to the A11 bionic’s 32KB and 2.39GHz respectively.
The biggest improvement in the new Apple A12 chipset is in the GPU. Its metal score is 21691 points, a big jump from the A11’s 15005. This is Apple’s second GPU since ditching Imagination’s PowerVR GPU and it does pack some serious punch.
