One of the new 2020 iPad Pro models equipped with an A12Z chip came early to a Reddit user who did some benchmarking tests to see how it works.
In a Geekbench 5 test, the 11-inch 2020 "iPad Pro" was used, achieving a single-core score of 1114 and a multi-core score of 4654, which is close to the Geekbench scores of the 11-inch PiPad Pro from 2018 lies.
The 11-inch iPad Pro has an aggregated single-core geekbench 5 points out of 1113 and a multi-core value of 4608. Like the A12X, the A12Z is an 8-core chip with 2.48 GHz.
The new 2020 iPad Pro won a little in the metal points and scored 9894 metal. This is not surprising, however, since the A12Z has an 8-core GPU instead of the 7-core GPU of the A12X.
Antutu tests were also performed and showed lower values than previous models in the memory category, although the test may not be optimized for the new mode ls and the iOS 13.4 update. The CPU was 187648, the GPU was 348519 and the memory was 71476 compared to the CPU 184553, the GPU 357335 and the memory 90598 for the 11-inch model 2018.
More testing needs to be done to confirm if there are any notable differences in CPU speed between the 2018 and 2020 PiPad Pro 2018 models, but at the moment the gains seem modest.
The new PiPad Pro models ship with iOS 13.4, which will be released by Apple tomorrow, so new iPad Pro owners do not need to upgrade. Most people who order a new iPad Pro on the day of its launch will receive their shipments on Wednesday, March 25th.
