Apple's DTK development kit, that is, the Mac Mini equipped with a12z bionic chip, has reached many developers. We have also seen the running points of a12z. According to geekbench's multiple running points, the average score of DTK a12z is 811 and that of multi nucleus is 2871.
According to developer Steve Troughton Smith, the a12z chip in Mac Mini was made by Apple two years ago, but its performance has already surpassed that of Microsoft's arm chip surface Pro x, and the a12z is still the x86 translated by Rosetta 2_ 64 code. Surface Pro x runs native arm applications.
The geekbench of Microsoft Surface Pro x is divided into single core 726 and multi-core 2831, which means that a12z single core surpasses surface Pro X and multi-core is slightly higher than surface Pro X.
The surface Pro x is equipped with 3GHz ARM chip designed by Microsoft, which is based on the development of Qualcomm SQ1 chip. A12z chip and 2018 model in apple DTKiPadThe a12x in Pro is the same, but one more GPU core is opened.
In the future, arm chips that will appear on Macs will be developed on the basis of A14 chips, which adopt 5-nanometer technology and will be in 2020iPhoneFor the first time.
Better performance from apple.
