Apple claims that the chip’s CPU and GPU are about 50 percent faster when compared to competing smartphone SoCs. It even says that the new chipset is good enough to challenge the performance of laptops.
Apple has apparently limited A14 Bionic performance on the iPhone 12
iPad Air 4 has achieved an overall score which is nearly 17 percent more than what the iPhone 12 got. The tablet’s CPU is 9.5 percent faster than the iPhone’s, and it offers 30 percent faster graphics performance.
The benchmarking website believes that the performance of the A14 has been limited on the iPhone 12 because of its comparatively smaller battery capacity to prevent overheating issues. The same could be said for the iPhone 12 Pro, looking at its alleged scores.
The A13 Bionic is already a pretty capable chip and the latest comparison makes us wonder if the A14 Bionic on the new iPhones is doing anything groundbreaking for the average user, apart from giving them bragging rights.
