That GPU score is off the charts!
Apple was dead serious with the iPad Pro’s potential during its presentation last week. Powered by an A12X Bionic chip, the iPad Pro was able to edit a large PSD file on Adobe Photoshop without any lag.
If you still doubted that presentation, the iPad Pro’s score in AnTuTu should erase those hesitations. Recently, AnTuTu posted the score for the 11-inch iPad Pro, and the tablet scored a whopping 558k.
Described as a “total monster”, the iPad Pro’s A12X Bionic chip crushes the competition in GPU performance, where it scored over 316k. That’s higher than the overall score of any Snapdragon 845 and Kirin 980-powered device out there.
In fact, other websites report that the A12X Bionic is faster than the Core i7 processor used in a 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro. In a nutshell, Apple’s A-series chips have evolved to offer desktop-class performance in mobile devices. The 2018 iPad Pro’s performance is a solid testament to that, and we will not be surprised if Apple will eventually use its A-series chips on MacBooks and iMacs in the near future.
