New MacBook Processor A14X In Performance Test
Apple is preparing to introduce the first MacBook models with Apple Silicon processors on November 10, with an event called ‘One More Thing’. The performance test results of the A14X processor, which is expected to be introduced at this event, have already emerged.
As we know, US technology giant Apple organizes events in the last quarter of every year where their brand new products are introduced. The name of the event to be held this year will be ‘One More Thing’. Many people expect the first Arm-based Mac devices to be introduced at the event, which will take place on November 10. Rumor has it that the first Apple Silicon processor will be based on the six-core A14 Bionic that powers the iPhone 12 and iPad Air and will be introduced as the A14X.
Like the A14, the A14X will be produced by the Taiwanese TSMC on a 5 nm base. The eight-core processor will be built on the Arm’s big.LITTLE architecture. According to the performance test results, Geekbench scores 1.634 points in a single core and 7.220 points in multi-core from 5. The processor, which is transferred to reach a maximum frequency of 3.1 GHz, is supported with 8 GB of RAM according to the hardware in the test.
The processor speed of the A14X is shown as 1.80 GHz. According to the report, the speed of the processor can reach 3.10 GHz in turbo mode. Although these numbers may not seem like very high at first, benchmark results of the processor promise a satisfactory performance in general.
The A12Z bionic chip, one of the previous Apple chips, scored 1118 points with a single core and 4657 points in multi-core in the same test. A14 left the test with 1583 and 4198 points, respectively. It should not be forgotten that in that test, it was an important detail that the processor was able to use its power limited to prevent the iPhone 12 from overheating.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro had an Intel Core i9 as a processor. The processor of this model scored 1096 points in a single core and 6869 points in a multi-core in the same test. According to these results, the A14X processor is quite powerful and can deliver this power with low heat and energy.
The event is expected to introduce 12-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with Apple Silicone processor and 13-inch MacBook Air. IPad Pros using A14X processors are also expected to be on sale next year.
