MacBook Air 2020 loses performance to iPad Pro 2018
The updated MacBook Air presented last week, positioned by Apple as the most popular laptop in the world and received the Magic Keyboard, has already been tested on Geekbench 5. The results were not so comforting for Apple, who curled at the presentation about the increased performance of new ultrabooks. When comparing the technical parameters of a laptop equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor, it turned out that its performance is less than the performance of the 2018 iPad Pro.
Testing data was posted online by blogger Jason Snell, showing that the MacBook Air (2020) scored 1,047 for single-core testing and 2,658 for multi-core. Testing was conducted at a processor frequency of up to 3.5 GHz in TurboBoost mode.
Test results for iPad Pro (2018) showed that with a single-core test, the tablet receives 1108 points, and with a multi-core test – 4595 points. As a result, with multi-core testing, the tablet two years ago is significantly ahead of updated laptops.
Insiders say that new generations of Apple laptops will be created on the basis of ARM-processors, which is also supported by comparative testing data posted by Jason Snell. It should not be forgotten that testing was performed when the devices were running on different operating systems. However, we can assume that the difference in performance, in addition to software, has hardware reasons.
