Apple’s upcoming A17 chip, which is slated to be used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models, has a six-core CPU and a six-core GPU, according to a leaker. Unknownz21. The current A16 chip contains a six-core CPU and a five-core GPU, so the A17 chip will bring remarkable improvements to the GPU for the new high-end iPhone models.
The A17 chip will feature a maximum clock rate of 3.70GHz, up from 3.46GHz in the A16 chip. Notably, information shared by Unknownz21 indicates that the iPhone 15 Pro models will have the same 6GB of RAM as the iPhone 14 Pro models. Previous rumors said that the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will have 8GB of RAM, which the leaker says is “unlikely,” but not impossible.

The A17 chip, built on a new 3nm process, will bring speed and efficiency improvements to iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max. We should see a nice increase in GPU performance along with faster CPU speeds and possibly better battery life compared to the A16, which is built on a 4nm process. It can increase performance by 10 to 15 percent, while power consumption can decrease by up to 30 percent.
Since 3nm technology is new, the A17 chip is expensive to manufacture, which means it will only be available in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Standard iPhone 15 models will adopt the A16 chip, which is currently limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
