Now that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are official, confirming many rumours that have been brewing in the rumour mill for the past couple of months, there’s still one mystery that was left unsolved – how much RAM do they pack? According to GeekBench’s numbers, the iPhone 7 Plus not only has a faster A10 processor, it also has more RAM, making it faster than the 12.9” iPad Pro.
According to the benchmark results, the iPhone 7 Plus (iPhone9,4) has got 3GB of RAM, the largest amount of RAM on an iPhone.
According to Phil Schiller during the iPhone 7 launch event, the new A10 Fusion SoC is a four-core processor – two of the cores will handle high-performance tasks while the other two are high-efficiency cores. However, when running the benchmark, only two of the cores are handling the load.
Still, despite that, the iPhone 7 Plus is still the most powerful iPhone to date, and even outperforms the 12.9” iPad Pro that has 4GB of RAM. This is thanks to the new A10 chipset and its performance controller.
Sadly though, there isn’t any benchmark test on the iPhone 7 but since both devices are powered by the same chipset, they should be very similar in terms of performance.
