New iPad Pro obliterates competition on Geekbench

Apple introduced its new iPads with an A12X chipset two days ago and the first benchmarks already started popping. Two listings on Geekbench revealed that the smaller iPad Pro will have 4 GB RAM, while the bigger will sport 6 GB RAM, but what is more impressive is the multi-core score that is around 18,000.

The iPad Pro 11 reached 4,987 in the single-core score, which is higher than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max that was lurking around 4,800. The bigger iPad Pro, the one with the 12.9 screen, scored similar result as its smaller sibling – 5,020. The increase for a single core is not that big, compared with the regular A12 Bionic. The difference is made in benchmarking multiple cores.

The new tablets with the updated chipset recorded more than 50% increase in performance, smashing to pieces any competition left. We didnt want to include devices with Snapdragon 845 because at that point it is simply not fair – devices like the OnePlus 6T or the Samsung Galaxy Note9 barely reached a score of 9,000, while the Kirin 980-powered Mate 20 phones can go as high as 9,800.

The new iPads are available for pre-order at Apple and various retailers and carriers like Verizon. Prices start from $799 and $999 and go up to $1,899 if you want the bigger screen with 1 TB storage and Cellular network. Sales begin on November 7.
