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.
Just how much faster Apple's new M1 chip is when pitted against its Intel silicon counterparts? Well, someone with access to Apple's new M1-powered Macs submitted alleged Geekbench 5 scores showing the chip outperforming every Mac ever made in single-core performance.
Along with new iPhones, one of the expectations every year is a new A-series processor. Apple continues to improve on the formula, and it appears this year's iteration isn't any different.
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.
Say hello to CPUTool, a newly released jailbreak tweak created by iOS developer Soh Satoh that lets the user underclock their handset’s CPU and/or GPU performance in an effort to optimize power consumption.
Claimed Geekbench scores, spotted Monday, for a yet-to-be-announced Apple A14 system-on-a-chip that will power so-called iPhone 12 show massive jumps in multi-core performance and speed, indicating the next iPhone might match performance of the current iPad Pro.
Benchmarks reveal that the newest 13-inch MacBook Pro is the recipient of a huge speed boost compared to older models.
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.
