Whereas the corporate boasted about its energy and effectivity enhancements, it didn’t point out any benchmark scores. Now, forward of the iPad Air launch this month, the Geekbench rating of the A14 Bionic chip has been revealed.
Within the benchmarks, the A14 Bionic scored 1583 scored within the single-core benchmark and 4198 within the multi-core benchmarks. For comparability, the iPhone 11 scores 1334 and 3512 within the single-core and multi-core benchmarks in Geekbench. The only-core scores are even greater than the A12Z Bionic discovered contained in the 2020 iPad Professional which managed a score of 1119.
