Apple has confirmed that next week, they will be hosting an event on the 10th of November. While the company has not stated what will be launched, it is largely believed that the event will see the company officially unveil their brand new series of Apple Silicon Mac computers, and now it looks like benchmarks of the chipset have been leaked.
The chipset in question is said to be the A14X Bionic, a variation of the A14 Bionic used in this year’s iPhones and iPads. Based on the GeekBench results, it appears that this is something worth getting excited over. The benchmarks have revealed that the A14X scored 1,634 in single-core performance, and 7,220 in multi-core performance.
To give you some context, this is slightly faster than the current A14 Bionic found in the iPhone 12, but it also seems to be faster than the 2019 16-inch MacBook Pro whose Intel Core i9 configuration scored 1,096 and 6,869 for single and multi-core scores respectively. It does not beat it by a very huge margin in multi-core performance, but the fact that it is faster than the top-of-the-line MacBook Pro is quite exciting and impressive.
That being said, there’s no way to tell if these benchmarks are the real deal as benchmarks can be faked, but previous benchmarks on older A-series chipsets have found them to be pretty powerful in their own right, so it will be interesting to see how they might fare in real-world testing.
