Inside the recently introduced iPad Air 4 is a 5-nanometer A14 Bionic processor. The same chipset is expected in the new iPhone 12 series. Testing of this processor in Geekbench showed that it significantly bypasses the top solution from Qualcomm.
Earlier, the results of testing the A14 Bionic in AnTuTu appeared on the network, which showed a slight increase in performance compared to the A13 Bionic. However, in the Geekbench benchmark, as it turned out, the new processor shows much more interesting numbers.
The new iPad Air 4 from the A14 Bionic scored 1,583 points in Geekbench 5 in single-core mode and 4,198 in multi-core mode. The test showed that the processor is equipped with six cores and runs at 2.99 Hz, and the amount of built-in RAM is 4 GB.
For comparison, last year’s iPhone 11 Pro Max based on A13 Bionic with a maximum frequency of 2.66 GHz gives an average of 1330 and 3400 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. Thus, the new chipset is about 20% more productive.
As for competitors’ decisions, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ shows Geekbench 5 a little less than 1,000 and about 3,500 points in single-core and multi-core modes. It is also worth noting that this is an octa-core processor. Thus, chips from Apple still remain the leaders in performance.
