According to PCMag’s Geekbench 5 benchmark test, the Galaxy S22 Ultra with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU scored 3,433, compared to 4,647 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max with Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset. According to this data, the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s CPU performance is around 35% quicker than the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s.
While all Galaxy S22 versions sold in the United States include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, those sold in Europe feature Samsung’s Exynos 2200 CPU. However, Geekbench 5 results for Exynos 2200 devices still show multi-core scores in the mid-3,000s, indicating that iPhone 13 models retain a significant performance advantage.
PCMag also ran Geekbench ML to test machine learning capabilities, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max scored 948, more than twice the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 448. The A15 CPU from Apple has a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of doing 15.8 trillion operations per second for machine learning applications such as on-device Siri processing.
Apple will attempt to widen its performance edge later this year with the introduction of a speedier A16 processor for the iPhone 14 series.
