Alleged A14X Bionic Benchmarks Show Huge Performance Jump vs A12Z Bionic

The folks over at CPU Monkey have just shared what appear to be CPU and GPU performance benchmarks of the latest Apple A14X Bionic chip, showing as much as 35% improvement in multi-core tests when compared to the A12Z Bionic chip.

Apple’s A14X Bionic is the company’s first 5nm silicon that will likely power the first Apple Silicon Macs coming next week, and rumoured next-generation iPad Pro models.


Much like the A12Z Bionic SoC found in the 2020 iPad Pro 11 and 12.9-inch models, the A14X Bionic features 8 cores divided into four performance cores and four power-efficiency cores. The A14X, however, does have 8GB of RAM as compared to A12Z’s 6GB.

Looking at these alleged A14X Bionic benchmarks, we can see the whopping multi-core score of 7220, which beats the multi-core score of the top-end i9 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Similarly, there is an impressive 26% GPU performance improvement with the A14X Bionic SoC as shown in the following benchmark.

It’s worth noting in the past, CPU Monkey leaked A12 Bionic and A13 Bionic benchmarks and they were within the same range as actual real-life benchmarks. This benchmark data is most likely from A14X Bionic test devices out in the wild, notes user ‘benbosox’ on Reddit.

We’re sure to find out all about Apple’s A14X Bionic at the company’s next special event, set for November 10 at 10AM PST.
