With the 2020 iPhones, Apple is expected to introduce the A14 chipset. Everytime Apple releases a new chipset, it becomes faster and more efficient and overall, just more powerful than its predecessor. However, with the A14, it could take things to a whole new level, according to a report from Macworld.
According to Macworld, it is largely expected that TSMC (Apple’s chipset maker) will be building the A14 chipset on the 5nm process, versus the A13 that used the 7nm process. It is believed that by using the 5nm process, it could make the A14 a lot more powerful where it could potentially result in the chipset hitting benchmark scores that could put it on par with desktop class CPUs or even the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
The publication predicts that the A14 could score anywhere between 1,500-1,600 on single-core performance, and also a score of around 4,500-5,000 for multi-core. Of course, there is no guarantee but based on the trends, they are predicting that this is what we might be able to expect.
It is interesting that they are suggesting that the A14 could be as powerful as the 15-inch MacBook Pro. This is because there have been rumors suggesting that Apple could be considering making the move to ARM-based chipsets for future MacBooks, so if the A14 is as powerful as predicted, it certainly lends itself to the narrative.
