Apple’s A14 Bionic SoC has been spotted on Geekbench alongside the iPad Air 4. The Geekbench listing, shared by Ice Universe on Twitter, a trusted leaker, reveals the A14 Bionic chip scores and the device using the chip is believed to be an iPad Air 4 running iOS 14.
It nets a single-core score of 1,583 and a multi-core score of 4,198. This score is the highest ever seen so far on a mobile SoC and, as expected, Apple’s flagship silicon outperforms the existing Samsung and Qualcomm chipsets. Apple A14 Bionic be miles ahead of Snapdragon and Samsung in delivering performance.
If we compare, Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-launched Snapdragon 875 manages a single and multi-core score of 1,102 and 4,113, respectively. Where as Samsung’s Exynos 1000 managed to score 1302 and 4250.
The Geekbench listing unveiled some insights about the A14 Bionic and iPad Air 4. The new A14 Bionic is still a hexacore chip, probably in a 4+2 configuration and its performance cores reportedly to be clocked at 2.9GHz.

Apple’s A14 Bionic is arguably the world’s first commercially produced chipset that is based on 5nm node technology, giving it a huge advantage over its Android counterparts. Leveraging the 5nm node technology, Apple was able to pack nearly 11.8 Billion transistors in the A14 Bionic chipset.
Technically, Apple’s A14 Bionic chip has two high-performance cores to handle demanding tasks and four high-efficiency cores to improve battery life and this setup should output 40% performance boost over the A12 from the previous iPad Air. However, increase over the A13 won’t be so significant as AnandTech calculated it to be 16%.
Finally, the chip will be manufactured by TSMC on their first generation 5 nm fabrication process.
