Succession

A13 Bionic is a 64-bit hexa-core ARM high-performance mobile system on a chip introduced by Apple in September 2019 as a successor to the A12.

Overview[edit]

Fabricated on TSMCs enhanced N7P process, the A13 integrates 8.5 billion transistors to feature two big Lightning cores operating at up to 2.65 GHz and four little Thunder high-efficiency cores operating at up to 1.80 GHz.

Apple claims a performance gain of 20% speed and 30% lower power consumption than its predecessor A12.

ISP[edit]

Neural Engine[edit]

Like its predecessor, the A13 Bionic is equipped with a specialized machine learning processor called the "Neural Engine". Apple claims the A13's Neural Engine is 20% faster while consuming 15% less power than its predecessor.

Utilizing devices[edit]
