Hey tech enthusiasts! So, Apple just threw a curveball our way during their latest fall bash. Remember when we all thought the iPhone 15 Pro would rock a fancy A17 chip? Well, Apple decided to up the ante and introduced us to the swanky “A17 Pro.” This little beast is a 3-nanometer marvel boasting a whopping 17 billion transistors and a six-core CPU. Apple's bragging it's faster, with the performance cores speeding ahead by 10% compared to the A16. Plus, its efficiency cores? Top-notch. Oh, and for the gamers in the house – the GPU got a 20% boost and now supports the cool hardware-accelerated ray tracing.
Speaking of gaming, Apple spilled that Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village are heading to the iPhone. Plus, watch out for The Division Resurgence dropping next year. But let's talk about that “Pro” tag for a second. What's the deal? Are we getting a lite version for the iPhone 16? Seems Apple's playing the long game, hinting they might drop a zippier chip than the A16, but perhaps a notch below the A17 Pro. Clever, Apple. Very clever.
