Apple A14 Bionic Chip Loses Out To Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865+ Soc In Antutu Benc by JJmubby: 7:26am On Oct 17
Apple this week announced its new Apple Watch and iPad models at the company's 'Time Flies' virtual event. Among the products announced, the Apple new iPad Air garnered a lot of attention as it carries Apple's latest A14 Bionic chip, which is also expected to power the upcoming iPhone 12 series.

Now, ahead of the new iPhone launch, it would be interesting to see how Apple's A14 Bionic chip fares against some of the other players like Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC, or Samsung's Exynos 990 that powers its Galaxy Note 20 series.
Part of that excitement can be satiated now, as a new report shows that Apple's A14 Bionic chipset has lost to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 SoC in an AnTuTu benchmark test.


Reliable tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) recently put screenshots of an AnTuTu comparison of the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, which will be powered by Apple's A14 Bionic chip. The results show the iPhone 12 Pro Max achieved a total benchmark score of 572,333, which is much lower than the 629,245 benchmark score when tested on an Asus ROG Phone 3 that runs on the Snapdragon 865+. We were not able to verify the authenticity of the iPhone 12 Pro Max scores independently.

If true, this will mean a significant victory for Qualcomm, which has been losing out to Apple in the chipset race for the past few years. The scores can also be lower as the iPhone 12 Pro Max might not be running on a final version of the software. It is likely that the A14 Bionic chip can put out more performance if paired with a stable software and device. All of this will be cleared soon, as the next generation of Apple's iPhone is set to launch in the coming weeks.


Apple's A14 Bionic chip is the world's first 5-nanometer chip to make it to a consumer device. Apple says that it has squeezed in 11.8 billion transistors in the A14 Bionic chipset. This helps the A14 Bionic to deliver 40 percent better overall performance, and 30 percent better graphics than the A13 Bionic chip that powers the iPhone 11 series.

Then this calls for alarm, Qualcomm SD 875 is about to be released.

Apple really cheated her customers on the iPhone 12 series. They wouldn't include chargers and earphones because of C02 whatever but will still still the same chargers to these same customers. Who's fooling who?

And the mmwave 5G they do much hype is only for the USA yet they sale it at the same price to users from other countries. Google sold the US version of the Pixel 5 with mmWave higher to customers in the US while it's cheaper to users from other countries who got the version without mmWave

Damn
After claiming it was the fastest mobile chip in existence
I'm sure apple would release an update fixing the score before sending it out

Regardless the A14 would still be smoother than the 875 yet to come

About power, well that's a story for another day.. Let's see how it goes

The sale of the iPhone 12 series might be affected this year and Apple will have to endure the medium to low profit but wait, it’s Apple iPhone, people will still buy it anyways.

Everything doesn't revolve around Nairaland.

Go to reddit, gsmarena, XDA and read comments, not just the post alone and you'll see the following complaints
1. Price not changing after removing the headphone and charger.

2. Price is high despite COVID-19 and they released the SE 2 earlier.

3. 5G UW is basically useless outside the US whereas OnePlus and Google dropped prices of their device in areas that didn't have the Sub 6Ghz mmWave yet (Apple don't care).

4. A14 is possibly underclocked. No way they'd pay top dollar for an underclocked device no matter how powerful (it's their money and they want the full package for their moneys worth).

5. Buying separate chargers (USB and wireless for MagSafe) defeats the purpose of what Apple said (fighting E-Waste by reducing number of chargers and stuff) and turning it into a cash grab.

6. Newer batches of iPhone 11 series won't have chargers in them incase people don't want to buy the 12 as it isn't worth the upgrade, given the state of 5G.

Lol bro , iphone 8+ can't compare with any 2019 top notch android . Try to look up some comparison. Nowadays android are expensive than iphone and most android are faster . Samsung note 10 plus beats iphone x and still gives 11 tough time, try to look up some comparisons videos bigman

Android may be getting better but over time android slows down ( my only issue with android)

Show me one android that maintains its speed when it is new compared to its speed after 2 years of usage

First of its kind



Just that Apple products shouldn't be that expensive but look at Sony too they are kinda expensive......the issue is apple users won't stop getting the phones at outrageous prices because to some extent it makes them feel better than other phone users

If not for 5G , an average user who owns iphones 11 series may not get iphone 12. Cos , design wise , with a casing on the 2 phones you may not know the difference and iphone 11 series have an outstanding alround performance. So unless you are using x series and below or you are a techy / heavy gamer or user, iphone 11 series is still a bad ass option to stick with if you already have one.

Very true, and the blocky design of the iPhone 12 makes it prone to much damage when it drops naked, it won’t even flip, It’ll just drop flat. Apple always claim they have the strongest glass on each of their flagships but we all know how it’ll turn out when it drops.

I get your point but you're wrong on the battery capacity.

If any company tells you it's 3000mAh, it really isn't.
The estimated capacity is always lower, at about 28000mAh.

The A14 scores suggest it is underclocked but no one knows for sure until them tech guys get their hands on one (not a review unit mind you).

As for the RAM and smoothness of iOS, it's because all apps based on iOS are 64-bit only compared to Android with 32-bit and 64-bit support which makes optimization a problem and why Android is slow as devs gotta work on two separate binaries. I believe if Google drops support for 32-bit and used Fuchsia, no point increasing the RAM.
