In the Geekbench test database, information appeared on the new Apple A14 processor, which is likely to become the platform for the future iPhone.
The clock frequency of this processor, according to tests, for the first time for Apple chips will exceed 3 GHz.
In the single-core test, the novelty scores 1568 points, and in the multi-core test – 4612 points. In general, the increase in productivity, in comparison with its predecessor, will be in the region of 30–35%.
For example, the A14 processor was able to overtake the Bionic A13 chip, as well as Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The comparison graph also contains various devices, such as Galaxy Note 10, Pixel 4 XL, LG G7 ThinQ and others.
It is already known that the Apple A14 Bionic chipset will be built using the 5-nm process technology. Mass production of the device at the facilities of the Taiwanese TSMC will begin in April. It is also worth noting that last year TSMC invested about 25 billion in a 5-nm process technology. This was done in preparation for the advent of the A14 processors.
Previous A13 and A12 processors were built on a 7nm process.
The upcoming iPhone 12 line is expected to contain four different options. It will include a 5.4-inch iPhone, two 6.1-inch models and a 6.7-inch iPhone. All four devices will receive 5G connectivity support.
