It is already news around the world that Apple It has already introduced the iPhone 12 and its other three brothers as the new iPhone of the 2020 generation. All of them have the company’s first processor with 5nm process technology, just like the iPad Air (2020). But iPad Air (2020) performs better than iPhone 12.
According to the results in the benchmarks published by the site AnTuTu although the iPad Air (2020) and the iPhone 12 With both 4GB of RAM and an A14 Bionic processor equipped with the same type of graphics processor, Apple’s new tablet performs 10-30% higher.
Why is the iPad Air (2020) more powerful?
In the tests carried out by the AnTuTu We can see that for the overall result the iPad Air (2020) received a score of 660038, while the iPhone 12 scored 564899. Several thousand performance points behind. To be entirely exact, about 9.5% difference in favor of the new iPad.
But the most surprising thing is that most of the difference that the iPad Air (2020) makes to the performance of the standard iPhone 12 is through the results obtained by its graphics processors. In itself, the GPU in the iPhone 12 received a score of 201085, while the iPad Air (2020) surprised with a coefficient of 261927.
This increase in graphics performance of close to 30% makes us think that the potential of the A14 Bionic is, in fact, much higher than the iPhone 12 exhibits and it is worth asking ourselves why one of the Apple smartphones that is expected to be greater popularity in sales has received this treatment.
The app of AnTuTu It clearly reveals that the iPad Air (2020) performs better than the iPhone 12 but it may not be the only one affected by this disparity. If we remember evidence of AnTuTu published months ago about the performance of the iPhone 12 Pro Max this would not be up to the results of the iPad Air (2020).
The truth is that the reason is in the hands of Apple and its engineers have not spoken about it yet. We hope that there is an explanation for this difference in performance and that it is the product of the good intentions of the company and not a mishandling of its components.
