Days before the “One More Thing”(expected to be held on November 10) event, the performance benchmarks for A14X Bionic are leaked. According to some rumors, A14X Bionic will power the new 13 inch MacBook Air that will be announced during the ‘One More Thing’ event. The scores also reveal the core counts, clock speeds, and it also shows that the A14X Bionic easily outperforms Core-i9 powered 16-inch MacBook Pro.
An unnamed device was allegedly used to benchmark the A14X Bionic. The unnamed device could be an engineer’s sample of the upcoming 12.9-inch iPad Pro that will feature a mini-LED and will be powered by Apple’s custom silicon. As per AppleInsider, the A14X Bionic features an 8-core part along with a base clock speed of 1.80GHz and a boost speed of up to 3.10GHz. It is also said that for the benchmarks it was paired with an 8GB RAM.
It is the highest frequency ever observed from an Apple chip. The A14X Bionic was benchmarked via GeekBench 5 and as per the results, it easily beats the Core i9 8-core Intel processor. A14X scored 1634 in the single-core test while it achieved 7220 in the multi-core test. For comparison, 16-inch Macbook Pro with 8 core Intel Core i9 processor scored 1096 with a single-core test and 6869 with a multi-core test.
Although the result clearly shows that the A14X Bionic outperforms the Intel Core i9, there’s no way to confirm the authenticity of the benchmark scores as it was carried allegedly on an unnamed device. More information will be available once Apple successfully conducts its “One More Thing” event.
