Apple A14 Bionic Geekbench listing shows that Apple's silicon is still miles ahead of Qualcomm and Samsung
Now that the iPad Air 4 is out and about, we can better understand the Apple A14 Bionic's real-world and benchmark performance. Historically, Apple silicon has always destroyed equally-specced Qualcomm chips. The results are no different this time around, despite the A14 Bionic offering only a marginal performance boost over its predecessor.
A Geekbench listing has appeared online (via Ice Universe on Twitter) that shows the A14 Bionic in action. It seems to be an iPad Air 4 running iOS 14. It nets a single-core score of 1,583 and a multi-core score of 4,198, which is the highest we've seen so far on a mobile SoC. The A14 Bionic's AnTuTu showing was somewhat lackluster, but that is understandable. AnTuTu uses different renderers on Android and iOS, so we cannot directly compare the two platforms.
In contrast, Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 875 only manages a single and multi-core score of 1,102 and 4,113, respectively. One leak suggests that Samsung's Exynos 1000 managed to score 1302 and 4250. Another one gives us a more conservative score of 1,038 and 3,060. Regardless of how the chip actually performs, it still cannot best the A14 Bionic.
The Geekbench listing also gives us some insights about the A14 Bionic and iPad Air 4. The A14 Bionic is still a hexacore chip, presumably in a 4+2 configuration. Its 'performance' cores appear to be clocked at 2.9GHz, which could explain the impeccable singe-core performance. Lastly, the iPad Air 4 will come with a paltry 4GB of RAM.
