Yesterday Apple updated the iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini on its official website. Among them, the iPad Pro is the biggest upgrade. In addition to the new Magic Keyboard and ToF lens, the biggest highlight is the A12Z chip.
We know that the iPad Pro 2018 uses an A12X chip with 8 CPU cores and 7 GPU cores, and the number of transistors reaches 10 billion. The A13 processor in the iPhone 11 released in September last year uses a 4-core CPU + 4 cores. GPU design, the number of transistors is only 8.5 billion. The A12Z chip on the iPad Pro 2020 uses an 8-core CPU + 8-core GPU design. The number of transistors is unknown and should be only a lot more than the A12X.
Judging from the parameters, the A12Z processor is stronger than the A12X and A13. Today, AnTuTu also exposed the running score of the A12Z processor, with a total score of 712218. Compared with the A12X processor's running points, the A12Z has not improved CPU performance and GPU performance has increased by 9%. It seems that Apple will use the ToF lens on the iPad Pro to complete more AR applications, and 4K video editing is also possible. .
In addition, it is worth noting that the iPad Pro 2020 has been upgraded to 6GB of memory. Previously, the iPad Pro 2018 had only 4GB of memory.
