Apple is getting ready to reveal the A17 Bionic and M3 chips, which will power its new smartphones and PC products. But before an official announcement, a fresh leak has shown how well the upcoming M3 chipset performs. Let’s take a look, then.
The most recent leak came from a tweet posted by Vadim Yuryev. He shared the M3 chipset’s synthetic benchmark results from the GeekBench 6 platform. From these numbers, it appears that the M3 chipset achieved 3,472 in the single-core tests and 13,676 in the multi-core tests. These results demonstrate that the M3 chipset surpasses its predecessor, the M2, in several key areas.
Apple M3 Chip Specs and Features
These improvements put it in a class with high-end MacBooks equipped with the more potent M2 Max and M2 Pro chipsets. The M3 performs just 6% worse than the M2 Max in the multi-core tests in terms of multi-core scores. However, bear in mind that the M2 Max has 12 cores while the M3 reportedly only has 8. Single test results paint a different picture, with the M3 performing impressively 24 percent faster than the M2 Max.
On the other hand, in both the single-core and multi-core tests, it also outperforms the 10-core M2 Pro chipset by about 12%. This means that the upcoming Apple M3 is quite capable and might be able to compete with the company’s top silicon. Take this news with a grain of salt and check back for more information because this is still just an unconfirmed leak. You can also check out other information flying around in the tech world.
