The first purported benchmark results of Apple's newest A14 processor has just surfaced online. These come from the recently announced fourth-generation iPad Air.

The new A14 chip is built on a 5nm process – an industry first – and has a 6-core CPU and a 4-core GPU.

The results are from Geekbench and it shows the A14 managing a single-core score of 1,583 and a multi-core score of 4,198.

Here's how it stacks up against other comparable processors:

A14 Bionic comparison
Model Single-core Multi-core
A14 1,583 4,198
A13 1,336 3,569
A12Z 1,118 4,564
Exynos 990 925 2,681
Kirin 990 757 2,992
Snapdragon 865 901 3,337

Looking at the results, it's clear that the A14 has the fastest single-core performance of any contemporary processor used in a phone. Perhaps more impressively, its multi-core performance was just a tad behind that of the A12Z.

These numbers also offer a glimpse of how the upcoming iPhone 12 will perform.

The fourth-generation iPad Air will go sale sometime this month. Apple is expected to unveil the upcoming iPhone 12 soon as well.
