After holding a high profile launch event earlier week, Apple is now gearing up for the next highly-anticipated launch event where the company is expected to launch the new iPhone 12 series devices.
As we know, the upcoming iPhone 12 series devices will all be powered by the latest A14 Bionic chipset which powers the new iPad Air. Now, courtesy of popular benchmarking platform AnTuTu, we’re now able to have a good idea on how this chip performs in the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Apparently, the iPhone 12 Pro Max model with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage had achieved an overall score of 572,333 points on AnTuTu. This is considerably higher than the score attained by the score of the iPhone 11 Pro Max which stood at 524,436 points.
However, its breakdown score of 167,527 points for its CPU score doesn’t shows a significant improvement over the score attained by last year’s iPhone 11 Pro Max.
As a result, there have been speculations whether chipsets manufactured under 5nm process actually yield any huge performance growth over the current 7nm process.
That being said, there are also some whom argued that the chipset used for testing purpose might not be the final production chip used in the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Therefore, we might be able to expect a higher performance on the actual handset.
Other than that, there’s also a possibility that the performance of the chip was tuned down slightly in order to optimize its battery life. Whatever it is, the iPhone 12 series is still going to be one of the most exciting flagship series for the forth-quarter of the year.
