While we were talking yesterday about the iPhone 11 Pro with a technical file including 6 GB of RAM, it's the iPhone 11R's turn to be talked about. The successor to the iPhone XR, whose name fluctuates between 11R and 11 at all, was included in a benchmark under the code iPhone12,1. In view of the performances recorded, the difference is likely to be minimal this year.
IPhone XI R: barely more powerful?
Test on Geekbench, the new iPhone XR equipped with the A13 chip obtains scores fairly close to its year. In single-core, iPhone 11 arrives 5,415 points, or 13% better than the 4,796 with the A12 chip. An increase even more contained in multicore because the future iPhone gets 11,294, against 11,192 for the iPhone XR. Only a small percent more, despite a frequency of 2.66 GHz against 2.49 GHz last year.
Obviously, this could very well be any test or a false track left by Apple engineers. It is hard to imagine Apple being content with such a small difference, which each year takes gains of two or even three figures.
In any case, the good surprise of this benchmark comes from 4 GB RAM. For the record, the iPhone XR is limited to 3 GB of RAM, while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have 4.
Answer in a week when Apple will present the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max on September 10 during the return keynote.
Here is the benchmark in question:
