Apple's new A14 processor said to be as fast as the A12X and could hit 3GHz

Apple's unreleased A14 processor could be a beast. According to reports, scores that are supposedly from the A14 have surfaced on Geekbench and they are more than a match for the A12X processor in the iPad Pro.

The A12X processor may be from 2018 but it's still Apple's most potent ARM-based processor.

According to the Geekbench scores, the new A14 is reportedly 50% faster in single-core operations and just as quick on multi-core operations when compared to the A12X.

Against, the A13 found in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, the A14 is a 25% faster in single-core operations and 33% faster in multi-core operations.

Additionally, the Geekbench screenshots also showed the A14 is be running at over 3GHz – 3090MHz.

If these numbers are true, it would leave its rivals behind in an even thicker cloud of dust. It also lends weight to rumours that Apple is working on ARM-based Macs.
