Tonight, although there is no iPhone 12 phone, we can get addicted early, because Apple released the Apple A14 Bionic processor, the first built on 5nm process, 11.8 billion transistors proud of the crowd, no Huawei competition 5nm case this will be the strongest mobile phone chip. Apple A14 Bionic chip, different from previous years is the debut of the flagship chip device is not the new iPhone, but the latest launch – iPad Air 4.
The A13 Bionic processor used in the current iPhone 11 and iPad Pro is a 7nm process, integrated 8.5 billion transistors, 6-core CPU, 4-core GPU, integrated Neural computing engine, which is often said to be the AI core, AI computing power reached 1 trillion times.
On the A14 Bionic, the CPU is still 2 big cores + 4 small cores, but with 40% more performance. The GPU continues to be 4 cores but has been upgraded with a new architecture for a 30% performance boost, but the processor Apple is comparing it to is the A12 instead of the A13, so the performance boost over the iPhone 11 won’t be as noticeable.
The Apple A14 Bionic chip also has been upgraded in terms of ISP signal processing unit, security features, and ML master, though Apple didn’t release details. Software developers also shared with the event the power that the A14 delivers, showing off its improved computing performance, improved image processing performance across the board, and improved capabilities in machine learning.
What makes iPad Air faster than most PC laptops: Apple A14 Bionic Specifications Highlights
- 5-nanometer process: Breakthrough 5‑nanometer process technology allows for many more transistors in the same space. The result is increased performance in nearly every area and even more power efficiency for up to 10 hours of battery life. 11.8 billion transistors.
- 6‑core CPU: The new six-core CPU with four high-efficiency cores and two high-performance cores gives you a huge jump in performance and is faster than most PC laptops. With A14 Bionic chip performance improvements is 40% faster than the previous generation A12 Bionic chip.
- 4‑core GPU: A14 Bionic delivers blazing-fast graphics so you can render 3D objects or play an immersive high-frame game from anywhere. 30% faster graphics with the A14 Bionic chip compared to the A12 Bionic chip.
- Apple‑designed next‑generation Neural Engine: The next-generation 16‑core Neural Engine can process 11 trillion operations per second, resulting in a 70 percent increase in machine learning performance. And machine learning accelerators deliver a 10x jump in computations, elevating machine learning applications to an entirely new level of performance.
