YouTuber Geek Culture conducted a test to see how well the A16 Bionic processor performs when it comes to gaming.  The tested games include Genshin Impact, Call of Duty Mobile, Diablo Immortal, and Apex Legends. The YouTuber also ran Geekbench to see just how well the device performs while also checking the base temperature.

Genshin Impact

To start off, Genshin Impact was shot at 1080p at 120 FPS with the highest level of settings. The game’s loading speed is very fast on the iPhone 14 Pro Max and runs smoothly. A few minor frame drops could be seen while moving around but nothing noticeable or distractable.

The graphics held their own while fighting various monsters in different locations. After playing a few rounds, the base temperatures were checked and on the front, it was around 37-38°C. While on the back the temperatures were around 42°C. Despite the warm temperatures, the gameplay proved to be excellent.

Apex Legends

The next game tested on the iPhone 14 Pro Max was Apex Legends. The settings were kept high to properly take advantage of the A16 Bionic chip. The gameplay ran pretty well while also highlighting the vibrant colors of different locations. Clear point-of-view without any lag or frame drops.

The temperature on the front showed around 39.9°C around where the chip can be found, barely noticeable while playing. At the back, the maximum temperature detected was around 37.3°C, and it kept going down towards the bottom of the phone.

Call of Duty Mobile

Again, the settings were kept at high but the graphics quality and the frame rate quality could be kept at their highest i.e. Very High and Ultra. Other than that, the gameplay looked pretty good and it ran without any significant frame drops.

The temperatures after running Call of Duty Mobile on the iPhone 14 Pro Max on the front were detected at around 33°C and on the back, 34°C.

Call of Duty Mobile

Diablo Immortal

Lastly, Diablo Immortal was launched to test the A16 Bionic chip. The video was shot before the launch of iOS 16 so there was no support for 60 FPS, only 30. Nonetheless, other settings were kept at high or ultra.

Diablo Immortal ran pretty fast without any interruptions. Even though Diablo Immortal was not running at 60 FPS, the gameplay still looked good and ran smoothly. The temperatures were also in the normal range, 35°C on average.

Geek Bench also used Benchmark in order to keep scores on the device, and the scores were pretty solid. 1885 for Single-Core, and 5520 for Multi-Core. A significant improvement from the previous models that is sure to make gamers happy.
