The new iPhone 15 Pro with a Ray Tracing GPU announced at the Apple Wonderlust Event will run native versions of several AAA games, including Resident Evil 4 Remake, Resident Evil Village, Death Stranding, and Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
According to Apple, the iPhone 15 Pro represents the “next generation of mobile gaming” thanks to its A17 Pro chipset, which features a pro-class GPU that’s 20 per cent faster, has a 6-core design with better peak performance and hardware-accelerated ray tracing. This marks the first time a console/PC version of the game will run natively on iOS.[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqyUdNxWazA[/embedyt]
While we will have to wait and see how well these games run on the new chipset, the idea that the iPhone 15 Pro can run console-quality games natively is intriguing and hints that Apple might take gaming seriously for its iOS and macOS platforms.
