The Geekbench results for the newly launched Apple iPhone 12 series of smartphones are out. The latest flagship lineup from the Cupertino giant was just recently unveiled and showcase only a slight gain in performance over the previous generation.
Apple is known to not reveal certain specs regardings its devices, including battery capacity and RAM. Thus, we have to wait for synthetic benchmarks from known platforms like Geekbench to get additional information. And now, multiple listings for the same have surfaced online. When the company had first announced the A14 Bionic chipset, it had claimed that it offered a 40 percent boost in CPU performance and 30 percent boost in GPU performance over the A12 chip, which is already two years old.

Apparently, the reason Apple might have done this is due to lackluster performance gains over the last generation of A13 chips. This seems all but true as the Geekbench listings show that the iPhone 12 arrives with 4GB of RAMiPhone 11, and offers only a moderate bump of 20 percent in single core performance and just 8 percent in the multi core tests against the previous year’s A13 chip, as per a GSMArena report.
In single core tests, the iPhone 12 scored 1,588 points, while multi core results brought in 3,677 points. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pro with 6GB of RAM scored around 1,598 points in single core and around 4,000 points in multi core tests. Hence, we can see that the new A14 chip arrives with improvements towards its energy efficiency, rather than performance gains, which is understandable considering the new lineup features 5G support as well.
