The most significant upgrade for iPhone 12 series will be its new A14 processor. This time Apple will be using TSMC’S 5nm process compared to the 7 nm process used in iPhone 11 series. New reports are calming that the frequency stack of A14 will reach 3.1GHz, which is 400 Mhz higher than the current A13’s 2.7 GHz.
Although the 3GHz ARM processor has been advertised since the 20nm node, it has been tested. The frequency of the mass-produced mobile phone SoC has never exceeded 3GHz. The Apple A14 may become the first ARM mobile processor to officially exceed 3GHz.
At such high frequencies, Geekbench 5’s running points also scored, with single-core 1658 points and multi-core 4612 points.
How big is the improvement of A14?.
The single-core and multi-core of A13 are 1329 and 3468 points. In comparison, the single-core performance of the A14 has increased by 25%, and the multi-core performance has increased by 33%.
At present, the performance of the ARM processor in the Android camp is even beyond the A12. The latest product has just touched the A13 level. This year, it will be thrown away by the iPhone 12’s A14. The current Geekbench 5 running performance and single-core performance are about 1.5 times higher than the Android flagship processor.
