Apple says the chip’s CPU and GPU are roughly 50 percent faster compared to competing smartphone SoCs. It even says the new chipset is good enough to challenge the performance of laptops.
Apple apparently limited the performance of the A14 Bionic on the iPhone 12
AnTuTu Scores for iPad Air 4
The iPad Air 4 achieved an overall score almost 17% higher than the iPhone 12. The tablet’s CPU is 9.5% faster than the iPhone and offers 30% faster graphics performance.
The benchmarking website believes that the A14’s performance was limited on the iPhone 12 due to its comparatively lower battery capacity to avoid overheating issues. The same could be said for the iPhone 12 Pro, considering its supposed scores.
The A13 Bionic is already a very capable chip and the latest comparison makes us wonder if the A14 Bionic in the new iPhones is doing something innovative for the average user, as well as giving them the bragging rights.
