Alleged benchmark scores suggest A14X Bionic is a huge performance jump over existing Apple chips3
Like the A14, the A14X will also reportedly be manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) using the 5nm process and it is apparently an octa-core processor based on Arm's big.LITTLE architecture. The chip will likely fuel the next iPad Pro too.
The A14X is apparently clocked at 1.80GHz and the report says that it could be turbo-boosted to 3.10GHz.
A14X Vs Intel Core-i9
The A14X apparently achieved single-core and multi-core scores of 1,634 and 7,220, respectively. The test was conducted on an unknown device with 8GB of RAM.
In comparison, the A12Z Bionic chip that powers the current iPad Pro has scored 1,118 on the single-core test, and 4,657 on the multi-core test.
And, in case you are wondering, the A14 managed 1,583 and 4,198 on the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. The chip is apparently underclocked on the iPhone 12 to prevent overheating issues.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro with the Intel Core-i9 processor under the hood scored 1,096 and 6,869 on the same test which means that the upcoming Macs will be much faster than Apple's current lineup.
The company will likely announce 13-inch and the 16-inch MacBook Pros, and a 13-inch MacBook Air during the upcoming event.
