Apple A12 Processor To Use The 7nm Manufacturing Process


Apple has always had an edge with the performance of its processors. It’s latest Apple A11 outperforms all Qualcomm Snapdragon chips including the latest SD845. Qualcomm, Samsung, TSMC, MediaTek and other chip manufacturers are still yet to give Apple a good fight in the Chip manufacturing industry. Recent reports by Ice Universe shows that Apple’s A12 processor performance on Geekbench was amazing. It got a massive 5,200 points on the single-core test while the multi-core score hit 13,000 points. With this score, the A12 will conserve power and its performance will be  20% -30% more efficient than the A11 Bionic.

In addition, @Ice universe also mentioned that the current average power consumption of the A12 processor at 7nm is 23% higher than expected. As for the GPU performance, no information is currently available. Recall that Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 GPU performance is on par with the A11 Bionic processor. It is most likely that Apple will want to ensure that it brings something better. Do you think the other chip makers will catch up with Apple? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Catch up with what? Samsung is already there regarding CPU performance on updated Equnos SoC that will debate with new Note and before new iPhones, Qualcomm has a highest performance ever made up to date ARM core which just didn’t see any implementation in mobile SoC’s yet. Both Apple and ARM lag behind in GPU’s to Adrenos and I don’t mean peek performance but sustainable one. Qualcomm is behind with it’s QDSP’s regarding competition licensable IP DSP’s and Apple is literally behind each & every vendor regarding heterogeneous CPUs and scheduler infrastructure in iOS for it. If the real trade war starts Apple will be a first casualty, banning it from China and ending Foxconn operations there would literally mean an end of story. Bricking the chain(s) and letting us free (at list a bit more free) actually wouldn’t be a such a bad thing at all.

    5000k in single core is a complete beast. That performance is nearly PC range, why is it needed so much power for a phone?

    just a gimmic for apple fanboys. where are you gonna utilize this.
