Apple’s A12 Bionic chip is so powerful, it runs Fortnite at 60 fps
November 28, 2018

That’s better than the Nintendo Switch.

If you’re one of the millions of Fortnite players that also has Apple’s latest iPhones, you can now enjoy the game in stunning 60 fps. It was just confirmed that the recent update for Fortnite on iOS adds support for the upgraded hardware, which means that the game now offers a smoother experience with even better graphics.

To compare, other devices like the Nintendo Switch and other Android devices (including the newest ones) still run Fortnite at just 30 fps. Though the advantage is that the Nintendo Switch is a relatively cheaper device compared to the iPhone XS.

But it somehow showcases the engineering feat achieved by Apple with their own custom CPUs, which by now matches the speed of some entry-level computers. The A12 Bionic chip is now one of the most powerful mobile chipsets currently available.

That doesn’t mean that you won’t see a 60 fps option on Fortnite on Android devices – Epic Games did mention that they’re working on optimizations to make sure the support arrives on the high-end Android devices. Along with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR, Fortnite also runs at 60 fps on the Xbox One X and the PS4.
