Back in June at WWDC 2020, Apple promised Macs powered by Apple Silicon. As we all are aware of tomorrow November 10, Apple’s ‘One More Thing’ Special Event is on the horizon.
It’s sure that first Apple Silicon Mac embedded with the “A14X” will be unveiled to the public tomorrow. But according to rumours, the chip may have been benchmarked just days before its launch.
According to rumours, the CPU benchmarks for the “A14X” show a 1.80GHz processor capable of turbo-boosting to 3.10GHz becoming the first custom Apple Custom Silicon to ever reach above 3GHz. It is an 8-core processor with some tweaks. The GPU results are 8GB of RAM will be integrated with the processor itself.
Apparently, these scores are significantly better than older 16-inch MacBook Pro housing Core i9 processor, where the Intel chip scores 1096 in single-core and 6869 in the multi-core tests.
As per the benchmark scores, the A14X scored 1634 and 7220 points in the single-core and multi-core tests. Set side by side, to the A12Z chipset scores 1118 and 4657 respectively, while the newer A14 scores 1583 and 4198 points. This benchmark testing was reportedly performed with Geekbench 5 on an unknown device and it’s not sure that the scores are real. Altogether, we are excited to see how this new Apple Silicon performs in real-world scenarios. As the Cupertino Giant shifts from x86 to ARM architectures.
