The iPhone 7 Features 3GB RAM And 2.23GHz Processor Show Alleged Benchmarks
Just like every year, Apple's launch of the iPhone went away as quickly as it came. This year we saw a much stronger emphasis on design and build as compared to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. We also saw a drastic overhaul of camera specifications, which make yesterday's launches by Apple stand out by quite a bit. Still, keeping in line with tradition, Apple revealed very little core hardware specifications for the iPhone. The company claims that the A10 Fusion offers 40% performance and 50% graphics improvement over its predecessors. We still don't know its clock speeds or even the RAM count for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. A GeekBench listing has surfaced today which looks to provide more details on the matter. Take a look below to find out more.
The Apple iPhone 7 Surfaces With 3GB RAM And 2.23GHz Processor On GeekBench
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus saw Apple stick to and refine its strengths rather than introduce new features and updates. The highlights of this year were the extensive focus that photography received and Apple's improved manufacturing processes for the pair. Both the iPhones see a custom ISP from Apple that performs a 100 Billion operations every time a picture is taken. For design, we saw a closer integration of the device's overall form and new color options being introduced as well.
Even as these features further solidify the iPhone's image as a premium device, there's no concrete information on the its hardware specifications. The only information available about the Apple A10 Fusion is that the processor features four cores. There's no information on clock speeds, build or RAM for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Today, another alleged GeekBench listing of the device has surfaced which provides us with key performance specifications.
A processor clocked at 2.23GHz and 3GB of RAM are listed for the iPhone9,4. GeekBench also shows two cores for the A10 Fusion. This is most likely due to only one pair being utilized at the time the test was conducted. It's likely that the high performance cores of the iPhone are under operation over here. We've seen claims of 3GB RAM for the iPhone surface in the rumor mill as well. These have related mostly to the iPhone 7 Plus.
If the iPhone really does receive a RAM upgrade then the device should perform consistently in tests. We've seen Apple dominate in single core tests previously, due to Cupertino's tight hardware and software integration. As the core count for the A10 increases, this year multi-core results should improve as well. We're seeing some large performance claims for the iPhone this year, but whether they materialize, only time will tell. Thoughts?
