Apple’s eight-core M1 processor has been creating a lot of excitement since last fall because of its groundbreaking performance. During the Spring Loaded event where the 2021 iPad Pro was announced which is also powered by the same M1 , the company said that the chip has made this year's iPad Pro up to 50 percent faster than the previous model which was already overpowered.
According to five results on Geekbench 5, the fifth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro boasts average single-core and multi-core scores of 1,718 and 7,284, respectively. For context , The M1 MacBook Air has scores like this, average single-core and multi-core scores of 1,701 and 7,378, respectively. You can see the similarity..
The fourth-generation A12Z powered 12.9-inch iPad Pro has average single-core and multi-core results of 1,121 and 4,656, respectively.
Now the best past, The new M1 iPad Pro has also outdone the highest-end Intel Core i9-powered 16-inch MacBook Pro which got average single-core and multi-core scores of 1,091 and 6,845 respectively. It’s just mind blowing.
As Per Apple's claim, its m1 iPad Pro’s 8-core GPU offers a 40 percent performance bump over the A12Z Bionic and it turns out, apple is very true.
The M1 iPad Pro has an average Metal score of 20,578 at the moment, which is a 71 percent increase over the A12Z powered iPad Pro. It's around the same as M1 Macs' graphics performance.
The big Question..
Current iPadOS might not be able to take full advantage of iPad Pro's M1 chip.
