Apple, last week, introduced the iPhone 15 series at its Wonderlust event. The iPhone 15 series, similar to its predecessor, includes four handsets – iPhone 15iPhone 15 PlusiPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The iPhone 15 series smartphones will go on sale starting September 22 in several markets including India. Ahead of the iPhone 15 sale, we have spotted the iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max on the GFXBench 5.0 database.

To those unaware, the GFXBench is a GPU benchmark database that counts the number of frames rendered by the handset in graphics-intense tasks. The GPU benchmark results showcase that the Apple A17 Pro performs better when compared to the last generation A16 Bionic.

The iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, and iPhone 15 Plus rendered around 3905, 3649, and 3078 frames respectively in the Aztec Runis High Tier Offscreen test. The Apple A17 Pro, on the iPhone 15 Pro series smartphones, rendered 7414 frames on average. This translates to around 115 frames per second, which is around 8 frames more every second compared to the A16.

The Apple iPhone 15 Pro renders 12912 frames, with an average of 208 frames per second, in the 1080p Manhattan 3.1 Offscreen test. This is about 500 frames more compared to last year’s iPhone 14 Pro. In terms of frames rendered per second, the A17 Pro’s GPU could render around 10 frames more compared to the A16’s GPU.

The GFXBench listing once again confirms that the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max feature 8GB of memory under the hood. The benchmark results also confirm the RAM on the iPhone 15 Plus, which is 6GB.
