What is A15 Bionic chip?

The Apple A15 Bionic features an Apple-designed 64-bit six-core CPU implementing ARMv8 with two high-performance cores called Avalanche running at 3.24 GHz and four energy-efficient cores called Blizzard running at 2.01 GHz.

Apple claims the A15 in the iPhones is 50% faster than the competition.

Apple claims the A15 in the iPad Mini 6 is 40% faster than the A12.

When both performance cores are active, their operating frequency goes up by 10%, both now running at 3180MHz compared to the previous generation’s 2890MHz”.

The A15 has video codec encoding support for HEVC and H.264. It has decoding support for HEVC, H.264, MPEG‑4 Part 2, and Motion JPEG. Codecs VP8 and VP9 are also unofficially supported. The AV1 codec is not supported via hardware acceleration.

A15 is manufactured by TSMC, reportedly on their second-generation 5 nm fabrication process, N5P.
