Early benchmarks for the new iPad Pro have surfaced on Geekbench revealing single-core and multi-core scores that are nearly as high as the 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro!

On average the iPad8,8 scored 5020 in single-core performance and 18099 in multi-core performance. Compare that to the base model 15-inch 2.2GHz MacBook Pro at 4928 single-core and 21165 multi-core.

The iPad Pro features an A12X Bionic chip built on a seven-nanometer process. It has four performance cores and four efficiency cores for up to 35 percent faster single-core performance. A new performance controller enables simultaneous use of all eight cores for an up to 90 percent boost during multi-threaded tasks. The tablet also features a seven-core Apple-designed GPU which delivers up to twice the graphics performance.

It's widely rumored that Apple plans to transition from Intel processors to Apple-designed ARM-based processors. Recent reports have suggested that TSMC will begin to manufacture these chips in 2020 or 2021.

It still a Tablet no matter who you slice it, downloading certain apps yeah that's cool but there's some programs you can't get via App, plus Usb-C is nice but how many people plan on carrying around a dongle for it. I have a Surface Go and IT comes with ONLY a Usb-C Connection and Although I myself don't mind carrying it around other's might.

Completely irrelevant as it can’t sustain the same workload due to thermal restrictions, they can’t be cooled in the same way, therefore the A12X will throttle.
