The iPhone 15 Pro revealed earlier this month, powered by Apple’s latest and greatest A17 Pro was touted to be capable of playing console-level games like Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Resident Evil 4 Remake.
At this point, it seems like the Resident Evil IV Remake will cost you $60 to run on Apple’s flagship devices – the same price as the console versions. While this, in itself, isn’t an issue since the pricing is consistent across all platforms, it does raise the question of whether the experience on the iPhone will be worth the price
Many tests have concluded how the “powerful” chipset inside the 15 Pro(s) is no more than an overclocked A16 Bionic, it does showcase a degree of upgrade when it comes to graphical performance. Regardless of that, some testing has recently revealed how the A17 Pro suffers from severe thermal throttling, and a lack of efficient cooling solution meant that the device reaches ~48C in benchmarking applications, which is HOT, even to hold.
YouTuber TheRelaxingEnd recently tested Genshin Impact on the iPhone 15 Pro where the phone failed to hold up, and severe stuttering was noticed, mostly because of thermal throttling. It has been said that this is a major issue if an external fan isn’t attached.
The Resident Evil IV Remake is currently available to pre-order on the App Store, with expected release around December. The game won’t be entirely paid however. If you do want to test it out, there will be a free 700MB version as the demo, but it’ll be limited in some way or the other.
Assassin’s Creed Mirage on the other hand will reportedly release around the start of next year. This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
