The Apple A14 chip shows all its power in a benchmark of the iPad Air 2020. The test offers us a glimpse of the performance of the future iPhone 12. Apple's new SoC once again demonstrates its supremacy over the competition.
Apple has formalized the A14 Bionic chip of theiPhone 12 in mid-September. The iPad Air 2020 is the first product announced with the new SoC engraved in 5nm. Pending its release in October, a Benchmark has just unveiled the performance of the tablet and its A14 chip which will be at the heart of the iPhone of 2020. The test was carried out on the platform Geekbench 5. The results that were spotted by the Ice Universe leaker show that the new chip will take a big leap forward in terms of power.
First of all, it has 6 cores with a base frequency of 2.99 GHz. The SoC is supported by 3.66 GB of RAM memory on the tested iPad Air which also ran on iOS 14.0.1. The scores obtained for the single-core and multi-core tests are 1583 points and 4198 points respectively, which propels the device to the top of all benchmarks tested to date on Geekbench 5.
Up to 20% more performance compared to iPhone 11
For the smallest comparison, the iPhone 11 Pro with the A13 Bionic chip got a score of 1337 on single core and 3509 on multicore. The iPhone 12 could be 18% and 20% faster. Of course, this is only an analogy while waiting for the final test results of the iPhone 12 and its various variations.
Recall that last month, a first Benchmark of the iPhone 12 Pro Max on AnTuTu gave rather disappointing results compared to the Snapdragon 865+. This time, the situation is not the same and far from it. The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which is powered by the same Snapdragon 865+ SoC shows scores of 985 and 3294 on Geekbench 5. In other words, the iPad Air and its A14 Bionic chip would be 60% faster on in mode. single-core and 27% faster on the multi-core test.
In case these results are confirmed in the coming weeks, it's a safe bet that the iPhone 12 Pro in its most powerful version will outperform its current competitors. While waiting for the first smartphones under Snapdragon 875 next year, another chip engraved in 5 nm.
