Apple A14 Bionic processor to bring significant performance boost, reveal benchmark scores

First impressions are rather simple - the A14 Bionic is looking like a significant improvement over the earlier A13 and may also be the key to driving the first generation of Apple Macs with in-house silicon.

Apple will use A14 Bionic chipset on its iPhone 12 series. The processor is likely to bring some serious power to the new iPhones and may even outdo Android rivals. 

Apple recently introduced the A14 Bionic chipset. The processor is most likely to power the next-generation iPhones. The new chip is said to be more powerful and efficient than its predecessors. Now, a Geekbench listing reveals the chip could be more powerful than the next-gen chips from Qualcomm and Samsung (Exynos).

According to the Geekbench listing, Apple’s A14 scored 1583 points on the single-core test. The chip scored 4198 scores on the multi-core test. The said chip in the benchmark scores has been sourced from the recent iPad.

Apple A14’s score is roughly 18% higher than the A13 that runs on Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro. GSMArena points out that the A14 chip is way ahead of the rumoured Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 and Exynos 1000 processors. On single-core tests, Snapdragon 875 achieved 1159 points whereas Exynos 1000 got 1159 points.

Similarly, Apple 14’s multi-core score is roughly 20% better than the predecessor. On multi-core tests, Snapdragon 875 achieved 4090 points whereas Exynos 1000 got 4250 points.

It is worth noting that Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 is going to power a variety of premium Android phones next year. The Exynos 1000 is likely to make its debut with Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series.

That said, Apple A14 chip promises a 16% bump in performance when compared to the A13. It brings in 40% CPU improvements and a 30% boost in graphics over the A12. Apple says that the A14 features next-generation 16-core Neural Engine that delivers 11 trillion operations per second – almost twice as much as A12 (five trillion) and 83% more than A13 (six trillion). Apple A14 Bionic is built on the new 5nm process and comes with a six-core CPU and a quad-core GPU.

We are likely to see a similar improvement in performance in the iPhone 12 series.
