iPad Air 2020 outperforms the iPhone 12 regardless of getting the same A14 Bionic SoC

Apple released the iPhone 12 series a couple of days back. It has the newest A14 Bionic SoC However, the manufacturer introduced this SoC a month noted on iPad Air 4th generation. Presently, AnTuTu reports the benches of both the devices, and for few reason, the iPad is outsmarting the iPhone 12 here.

The benchmark report by AnTuTu reveals that iPad Air 4 which is under testing boasts 4GB RAM and 256GB memory. The model number is iPad 13.1 and it is operating on iPad OS 14.0.1. The device receives an overall score of 660,038 points. The Chipset overall performance receives 183,817 points while the GPU result is 261,927 points.

Whereas the iPhone 12 scores 564,899 points in total. Furthermore, Its Chipset score is 167,894 which is 9.5% lesser than the score of iPad Air. further, the GPU result on iPhone 12 is moreover lesser at 201,085. Here, there is a wider gap of about 30%. That said, the disparity makes us wonder whether Apple has underclocked the SoC on the iPhone to match the battery and thermals.

In terms of RAM, the iPhone 12 Furthermore has 4GB RAM just like the iPad. This further kindles a crazy thought if the iPad Operation system is improved suiting for the A14 SoC in comparison to the iOS. This is because the UX score of iPad is about 97,026 however iPhone’s UX is just 90,243 points. And, a exact same AnTuTu result of an iPhone 12 Pro Max a month before introduced suggested at a result close to its sibling. It had clocked an general result of 572,333 points.

Getting said that, just as AnTuTu’s report says, probably Apple’s A14 SoC operates on extra stable with a theoretically much better thermally managed, larger battery iPad Air 4. Of course, all those will remain only as speculations unless Apple ships with a reason by itself. Additionally, a graphical reproduction reveals that iPhone 12’s GPU result has dropped when in comparison to last year’s iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Nevertheless, it’s too soon to comment on what’s being said or alleged, and let’s wait for extra samples in the future. And, we could In addition expect the scores to get much better like Apple optimizes the gadgets going forward.
