On October 14, Apple officially released the new iPhone 12 series 5G, equipped with Apple's A14 Bionic processor, but the rumored B14 chip did not appear. Although the performance of the A14 chip has been known in advance on the iPad Air 4 released earlier, the performance of the iPhone 12 is still very exciting. On the 15th, foreign media also officially announced the running score of the iPhone 12 Pro.
Data on the Geekbench 5 benchmark test platform shows that the iPhone 12 Pro equipped with a 5nm process A14 Bionic processor has a single-core score of 1590 and a multi-core score of 3120. In terms of single-core performance, it is far ahead of Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, and it may be difficult for the upcoming Snapdragon 875 to catch up.
However, there were surprises in the multi-core results. The score of 3120 points was far inferior to the iPad Air 4 equipped with the A14 Bionic processor. The latter's multi-core score reached 4198 points, which is far behind. However, Geekbench 5 platform data shows that the highest performance core of the iPhone 12 Pro runs at 3GHz full frequency, and there is no speed reduction. As for the reason for such a large gap in running points, it is not clear.
Foreign media MacRumors gave the opinion that the reason may be that Geekbench 5 started testing after the iPhone 12 Pro was simply set up, which led to a low running score. You can pay attention to the running scores of more machines in the future. , I believe the actual situation should be much higher.
