Apple debuted the A1
In the reference values, A14 Bionic scored 1583 in single-core benchmark and 4198 in multi-core benchmarks. In comparison, the iPhone 11 scores 1334 and 3512 in the default values for single-core and multi-core Geekbench. The single-core score is even higher than the A12Z Bionic found in the 2020 iPad Pro, which managed a score of 1119. It performed better than the 6-core A14 in the multi-core standards with a score of 4542.
The Geekbench list indicates that the A14 Bionic has a clock speed of 2.99 GHz, up from 2.67 GHz on the A13 Bionic inside the iPhone 11 Pro.
Although not specified, it is expected that Apple will also use the same A14 Bionic chip in the upcoming iPhone 12 series. The company tends to debut a new A-Series chipset with a new iPhone release every year, but had to use the new iPad Air as a launch device this year due to the delayed launch of the iPhone 12 series.
Through the points, it is clear that Apple has once again managed to deliver a 20-30% jump in performance on the CPU front. Geekbench does not test the Neural Engine and ML performance of the chips, which Apple claims have improved by more than 50% on the A14.
The single-core score of the A14 is also higher than the Intel Core i7-10700 8-core CPU, although the latter beats it easily in the multi-core department. Apple is expected to use a more powerful variant of the A14 Bionic chip in its upcoming Macs, which will have more cores and provide better performance, as they will have a higher thermal ceiling height there.[Via @L0vetodream]
