Apple unveiled its iPhone 12 lineup earlier this week. The vanilla iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be prepared for pre-order ahead of next week’s launch. Today we discovered the scorecards of the two devices in the AnTuTu database to get a little glimpse into the synthetic performance.
Both iPhone 12 devices are powered by the A14 Bionic, the first 5 nm chipset. However, the raw data shows rather disappointing results compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chip used by most Android flagships.
Apple iPhone 12 • Apple iPhone 12 Pro
The 570,000 times the total of the performance of GPU, CPU, memory and user interface at AnTuTu is anything but impressive. For a quick comparison: The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro scores over 687,000 points, with the largest gap being in the GPU value, which is over 40% lower on the iPhones.
In the other three segments, Apple has to catch up with less than 10% of the performance, and the memory difference is only around 6%, at least in the 4/256 GB memory combination of the iPhone 12 and the 6/128 GB variant of the iPhone 12 Per. This is also likely the first post launch confirmation that the 12 Pro models get 6GB of RAM compared to 4GB for the Vanilla iPhone 12s.
Even if we ignore the cross-platform comparisons, which we should probably always have at least somewhat imprecise as cross-platform benchmarks, the A14 is barely faster than its predecessor – the 7 nm A13 bionic chip. The iPhone 11 Pro Max scores 536,883 points on AnTuTu 8, which gives these two members of the iPhone 12 family a slight advantage of 5-6%.
