The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max benchmark results are starting to appear on Geekbench. According to the data received, the new A14 Bionic chip is more than 20 percent faster than its predecessor A13 in the iPhone 11 Pro models.
One of the results for the iPhone 12 Pro is 1597 in a single-core test and 4152 in a multi-core test, which in turn is 26 percent faster than the iPhone 11 Pro average of 1327 and 3289, respectively. Similarly, the iPhone 12 Pro Max outperformed the 11 Pro Max by about 20-25 percent.
As expected, the performance of the iPhone 12 pro roughly matches the new iPad Air, which also features the A14 Bionic chip. In one of the published results, the new “air” scored 1583 and 4198 points in single-core and multi-core tests.
It’s worth noting that some of the results for the iPhone 12 Pro models show significantly lower scores in multi-core tests. According to Geekbench creator John Poole, this is normal for new iPhones and should wait for later results.
Apple notes that the A14 Bionic processor is the fastest 5nm smartphone chip ever made. The chip’s integrated Neural Engine has also been bumped from 8 to 16 cores, making it 80 percent faster for machine learning tasks such as using Deep Fusion technology to improve photo detail.
