A newly leaked benchmark shows Apple's ARM-based A14X Bionic processor outperforming an Intel i9-powered MacBook Pro by a healthy margin. The new chip is expected to debut on November 10 during Apple's "One More Thing" event.

 

An unnamed device powered by the A14X Bionic chip was reportedly benchmarked in Geekbench 5, which was likely an engineering sample, according to Wccftech. In terms of single core performance, the A14X Bionic scored a 1634 and a 7220 in multi-core performance.

 

This was slightly ahead of the iPad Air powered by the A14 Bionic, which scored a 1583 in single-core and a 4198 in multi-core. 

 

Meanwhile, the big coup for the A14X Bionic was how it outperformed a 16-inch MacBook Pro powered by an Intel Core i9 CPU, which scored a 1096 in single-core performance and a 6869 in multi-core, which is a good bit behind the new Apple silicon.

More details revealed about Apple's A14X Bionic CPU

The new benchmark leak also reveals new details about Apple's new silicon. For one, the new A14X Bionic appears to be an eight-core processor, with a base clock of 1.80GHz, boostable to 3.10GHz.

 

This is the first time that an A-series CPU has surpassed the 3.0GHz threshold, so it's shaping up to be a powerful processor in its own right, even if its still far behind the clock speeds of the latest Intel and AMD processors.

 

Hopefully we'll learn more about the A14X Bionic itself during the November 10 event, though Apple is typically light on the technical details during their shows so it remains to be seen. Still, it's an exciting development and we'll be sure to keep on top of all the latest details in the days ahead.

Now they need to get the OS to be reliable and work with it. Something that on a MAC apple has been struggling with for over a year on hardware they have been working with for a decade. My vote is still out on if they can pull off a actual working platform after so much of a problem with Catalina. These will be launched with BigSur 11.0 because its already been GM'ed by Apple but not released as the new beta's of Bigsur are now onto 11.0.1. So they have moved to the next release without releasing. Obviously waiting for next weeks event.

Should be interesting to see how well the ARM architecture helps with respect to thermal management and heat emissions. I can't say Apple's chips in their i-device lineups are performing remarkably well there yet.

 

come to think of it, how is it that no one ever talks about thermal management when new chips are unveiled?

 

Am I the only one who gets annoyed when the surface of laptops get scorching hot under the most basic loads?

 

Perhaps everyone else fries their dinner on top of these while they are at it. A different way of classifying 2-in-1 devices, for sure.

@BimBamSmash it does seem the basics are missing. My 2017 MBP gets so hot that you can not use it as a laptop! It does not take long to get there. Of course is you use microsoft teams on it then you may as well turn it into a blow torch! Teams will eat the entire battery in less than 45 min in a 1 on 1 video call. The MBP CPU temp hits 95C at this point with fans blowing. While not particularly a MAC issue it does demonstrate what a hard running program on the MBP will do and the device simply is almost too hot to touch. I agree, it will be interesting to see how it performs thermally and if Apple actually do some thermal design instead of the tinkering tiny heat sink on the MBP. Its apple, so form over performance is often the call.
