As we know, the Cupertino giant Apple has a reputation for the hardware section, which is why chipmakers like Qualcomm, MediaTek, and Snapdragon have to struggle to keep up with the company’s hardware. However, this time things have changed quite a bit if we look at the benchmarks.
A renowned tipster named IceUniverse posted alleged AnTuTu benchmark scores of the Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset. The benchmark scores are of Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro Max, and it nets a total score of 572,333, which is low compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. Moreover, the Snapdragon 865+ Asus ROG Phone 3 nets a total score of 629,245. The standard Snapdragon 865 featured on the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra features the highest 646,730 scores and tops the AnTuTu August charts.
So, this could be a win situation from Qualcomm if the scores are genuine. However, it’s hard to believe that an Apple chipset would score too low on an AnTuTu benchmark. The discrepancies in TSMC’s 5nm process node could be the reason behind the low score of Apple’s 14 Bionic chipsets. Although, we can’t say anything as of now without any confirmation.
So, we advise you guys to take this information as a pinch of salt and wait for the official launch of the iPhone 12, speculated to arrive in the coming weeks. Also, do remember that these scores don’t give us real-time performance.
