iPad Pro with A12X Bionic outperforms new MacBook Air

Apple updated the MacBook Air product line this week. The new laptop is powered by 10th generation Intel Core processors and returns to the scissor type keyboard. Six Colors has published amazing benchmark results for two devices - the iPad Pro and the new MacBook.


Buying a modern MacBook Air, users can choose: a dual-core Core i3 processor, a quad-core Core i5 processor and a quad-core Core i7 processor.

In order to investigate the performance of processors from different generations of the MacBook, the Geekbench 5 test was used. For example, the new MacBook Air with Core i5 scored 1047 points in the single-core test and 2658 points in the multi-core test. Compared to the 2018 MacBook Air, the performance of the latter increased by 76%.

But much more interesting is the comparative test of the Macbook Air with the iPad Pro, which has an Apple A-series processor installed. The tablet has an ARM-based processor, and the laptop has an X86 architecture.

The iPad Pro 2018, which is equipped with an A12X processor, scores 4595 points in the multi-core test, while in the single-core test - 1108. These figures are much better than the new MacBook Air.

As you can see, the performance of the Apple A series processors is so good that there is every chance to wait for the upcoming release of the MacBook based on the ARM processor.
