Google has launched a new lineup of high-end Pixel devices equipped with chips of its own design. Here’s how the highest tier model, the Pixel 6 Pro, stacks up against Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max.
While the Google Pixel 6 Pro comes in at a lower price point of $899, the device packs some premium features that bring it into competition with Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max, which retails for $1,099.
With the Pixel 6 Pro, Google has taken a page out of Apple’s book and went in-house for its silicon. The Pixel 6 lineup is the company’s first to use its proprietary Google Tensor custom chipset.
Google says it’s a fast chip, and early benchmarks back it up. The Pixel 6 Pro had an average single-core score of 1,014 and multi-core score of 2,788 in Geekbench testing.
The Google Pixel 6 Pro packs a whopping 12GB of RAM.
Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max has an A15 Bionic chipset of the company’s own design. More than that, Apple chips have a long track record of crushing pretty much any Android competitor on the market — even those with more RAM.
Although Geekbench hasn’t been populated with a wealth of A15 Bionic testing, early scores suggest that the iPhone 13 Pro Max could clock in with a single-core score of 1,738 and a multi-core score of 4,766.
Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max has 6GB of RAM. However, as stated earlier, Apple devices have long done more with less memory than its Android rivals.
