One of the best parts of the brand new, redesigned iPad mini is the fact it features an A15 Bionic processor. That's the newest chip from Apple, and it's also what's present in the iPhone 13 lineup, too. However, if you were thinking the speeds would be the same across devices, it turns out that isn't the case.
If early CPU scores for the new 24-inch iMac powered by Apple's M1 chip are anything to go by, shoppers can expect a substantial speed increase over the previous generation.
The new iPad Pro equipped with the M1 processor is set to start shipping to early adopters soon. So, unsurprisingly, the first initial benchmarks for the new tablet are starting to crop up in advance.
The performance of both native ARM-based and emulated 64-bit Intel-based software on a Surface Pro X isn’t even close to the new Macs powered by Apple's M1 laptop chip. "Windows on ARM needs a miracle," according to one publication which ran various benchmarks to see how Windows on ARM compares to macOS Big Sur running on Apple silicon.
Apple doesn’t provide much by way of power savings on the iOS platform apart from the Low Power Mode feature and the use of general common sense with regard to reducing battery drain. Fortunately, those looking for more than what Apple seems willing to provide out of the box might be in luck as of this week.
Jason Snell of Six Colors ran the Geekbench synthetic benchmark from Primate Labs on a mid-range version of the new MacBook Air, equipped with Intel's quad-core 1.1GHz Core i5 CPU.
Benchmarks are in for the newest, most powerful Mac Pro, and the scores may surprise you.
It has only been a few days since Apple launched brand new MacBook Pro models, including the company's first 8-core model. Now the first benchmark for the company's fastest Mac notebook shows an impressive boost in performance.
All new iPhones run Apple's latest A12 Bionic system-on-a-chip and synthetic benchmarks like Geekbench 4 confirm this. According to the CPU, GPU and GPU compute scores for iPhone XR, Apple's colorful phone basically offers identical performance to the premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max smartphones, but in a package with a longer battery life that costs $250 less.
Apple's Mac mini was refreshed last week and it's quite a beast, according to the first Geekbench 4 synthetic benchmark scores pertaining to the pricier $1,099 model upgraded to an optional six-core 3.2GHz Intel Core i7 processor, resulting in a $1,299 configuration.
First synthetic Geekbench benchmarks of the most popular Apple notebook are here.
The new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro introduced Tuesday have plenty of CPU and GPU power to make them comparable in terms of processing speed to Apple's nearly $3,000 15-inch 2018 MacBook Pro notebook outfitted with Intel's six-core Core i7 chip.
