Apple claims that the chip’s CPU and GPU are about 50% faster when compared to competing smartphone SoCs. It even says that the new chipset is good enough to challenge the laptop’s performance.
Apple has clearly limited the A14 Bionic performance on the iPhone 12.
The iPad Air 4 scored almost 17% higher overall score than the iPhone 12. The tablet’s CPU is 9.5% faster than the iPhone and has 30% faster graphics performance.
The benchmarking website believes that the A14’s performance is limited on the iPhone 12 because the battery capacity is relatively small to avoid overheating issues. Looking at the alleged score, the iPhone 12 Pro is no different.
The A13 Bionic is already a pretty capable chip, and I wonder if it’s doing anything groundbreaking for the average user besides giving the new iPhone’s A14 Bionic the right to boast with the latest comparisons.
