Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max in AnTuTu demonstrates a small performance gain and loses to flagships on Android with Snapdragon 865+ chipset and massive updates suddenly confirmed.
While Apple did not unveil new models of its smartphones during its recent September presentation, it did talk about the A14 Bionic mobile processor, which will be the heart of the next generation iPhone. Apple has claimed 17% faster CPU and 8% faster GPU performance over its predecessors. The found results of testing the iPhone12 Pro Max in the AnTuTu package roughly confirm these claims.

Apple will present at least four smartphones – iPhone 12 (5.4 inches), iPhone 12 Max (6.1 inches), iPhone12 Pro (6.1 inches), and iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7 inches). All devices will receive 5G modems, OLED panels, dual or triple main cameras, and an Apple A14 Bionic processor (5nm process technology). The same SoC was built into the iPad Air (4th generation).
Ice universe has published the results of the iPhone 12 Pro Max in the AnTuTu performance test – a device with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent memory scored about 572 thousand points. Moreover, the test was carried out on the not yet officially released iOS 14.1. The result of 572 thousand points is not much different from what the current iPhone 11 Pro Max with the Apple A13 chip offers. The difference is about 8-9% (for the CPU by about 16%, for the GPU – by 3.5%).
Yes, according to AnTuTu data, the iPhone 12 Pro Max shows a 16% increase in computing performance and a 4% increase in graphics performance. The increase in performance of the memory subsystem looks more impressive – at once by 22%. However, the overall performance gain looks negligible.
In the AnTuTu test, the iPhone 12 Pro Max scored 572333 points. Compared to the competing flagship processor Snapdragon 865+, which is used in Android smartphones and they gain about 600 thousand points, this result does not look particularly impressive.
Thus, we can conclude that the world’s first 5-nanometer processor does not provide a significant performance gain, as one might expect. There may be several reasons for this. For example, Apple could focus on energy efficiency at the expense of productivity gains.
This version explains the fact that the new iPad Air, powered by the A14 Bionic processor, offers the same battery life as its predecessor, although it has 8% less battery. In addition, an engineering sample could take part in testing, which has not yet been fully brought to the proper level.
