Every year when Apple introduces a new iPhone series, it usually comes with a new chip. This year, it’s the A14 Bionic chip. The current iPhone 11 series and iPhone SE (2020) are all in the A13 Bionic, so when Apple launches the new iPhone 12 series, it’s time for the new chip to do its job.
This year, however, Apple unveiled the A14 Bionic chip along with the new iPod Air 4, which was unveiled at the Apple event on September 15. So before we get into the iPhone 12s, we have an idea of what and what this chip is. Can.
The first impressions are simple – the A14 Bionic is significantly better than the previous A13 and may be key in driving the first generation Apple Max with home silicone.
Like the previous A13, the A14 has two high-performance cores that perform demanding tasks and four high-power cores that improve battery life. Going forward, one can expect the new iPhone 12 series to improve battery life compared to its predecessors.
It’s interesting to compare the Apple A13 to the A12 instead of the A13, but the improved performance levels of the A14 may not be higher than the A13 delivery, which Apple talks about that evening with the iPod Air. According to reports, the performance of the A14 will increase by 16% compared to the A13.
However, in the case of AI-powered tasks such as photography, the comparison results between the iPhone 12 and older versions may be in favor of the new ones. Apple claims that the A14 has a “next-generation” 16-core neural engine that produces 11 trillion horsepower per second. That’s twice as much as A12 (five trillion) and 83% more than A13 (six trillion).
Mobile accelerators from the new also offer 10 times better machine learning. This is important not only for applications that use AI extensively but also for users to notice an overall difference. Speaking about the A14 bionic at the Apple event, Apple did not go into details even though it mentioned about the new image signal processing.
The Android Authority says the biggest change will be on how silicone is made. The A14 will be the first “commercially available chip” built using the bionic 5-nanometer process (powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 7nm process). It is much denser than its A14 Bionic Android rivals and, in principle, contributes to better power consumption.
It is safe to say that the A14 Bionic could only offer benchmark tests, however, history suggests that Apple’s new chip could achieve overall performance on Android options such as the Snapdragon 865 Plus and Samsung Exynos 990.
On the other hand, Apple’s comparison of what traditional computers can do with the A14 Bionic reveals amazing results. According to Apple, the A14 Bionic offers the same graphics performance as the Windows laptop for the same price.
Apple hopes to pick up the iPad Air with a low-end PC and will set up the bar that consumers expect from the first Apple Mac based on internal silicon. Apple wants you to see the A14 Bionic for “future computing” starting with the iPod Air 4 and iPhone 12.
