Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2021) runs laps around the competition in Geekbench


Apple’s new M1-powered iPad Pro 11 (2021) and 12.9 (2021) will come out in a couple of weeks, but the first Geekbench results are already out – and they are quite impressive. The benchmark was run on an iPad 12.9 Pro (2021) with 16 GB of RAM.

The single-core performance is comparable to the Apple A14 chipset of the iPhone 12 series, they use the same cores after all. However, the M1 has four big ones compared to two in the phones, which makes for a massive difference in the multi-core test.

Looking over at the top chipsets available for Android shows that Apple has a massive lead. We’ve also included some x86-powered laptops like the Surface 4 with an Intel Core i7-1185G7 or an HP ProBook x360 G8 with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U for comparison (both are in the 15W class, but have higher TDP modes).

Note: hover over the device name (or tap on it if you’re on mobile) to see more details about the chipset.

It’s quite impressive what Apple has achieved. And it has reportedly started mass production of a new, more powerful chipset – the Apple M1X or M2. That will be built on a refined version of TSMC’s 5 nm node, which will bring iterative improvements, but more importantly the new chip will have a higher core count. The exact number isn’t certain yet, but Apple might soon have something that rivals Intel and AMD’s desktop-class CPUs.
