The 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 outperforms the new MacBook Pro in some Benchmark tests

Apple earlier this month launched the second generation of the iPad Pro , as well as an upgrade of its line of MacBook Pro with faster processors and other performance improvements.
As you know, the Cupertino company touts the iPad Pro as a good substitute for a computer, and the BareFeats blog has conducted several performance tests to see if the new tablet is able to outperform the MacBook Pros, and has discovered that , Indeed, in some cases it does.
The blog has compared the MacBook Pro models with the Touch Bar of 2016 and 2017 with four different iPad Pro models. Here are the specifications of all models of MacBook Pro and iPad Pro compared:
  • MacBook Retina 13-inch 2017 : 3.5-GHz Dual-Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 GPU, 16 GB of integrated LPDDR3 memory at 2,133 MHz, 1 TB integrated PCIe SSD.
  • MacBook Retina 13-inch 2016 : 3.1 GHz Dual-Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Graphics GPU 550, 16 GB of LPDDR3 memory integrated to 2,133 Mz.
  • IPad Pro 2 of 12.9 inches : A10X processor of 2.39 GZ, flash storage of 512 GB, 4 GB of RAM.
  • IPad Pro 2 10.5 inches : A10X processor 2.39 GHz, 512 GB flash storage, 4 GB of RAM.
  • IPad Pro of 12.9 inches : A9X processor 2.26 Gh, 128 GB flash storage, 4 GB of RAM.
  • IPad Pro 9.7 inch : A9X processor 2.24 GHz, 256 GB flash memory, 2 GB of RAM.
BareFeats submitted all the devices to a series of tests of GeekBench and GFXBench , checking the performance of the CPU and GPU.
In the single-core test of the CPU, we can see that the MacBook Pro is unsurpassed, and both the 2016 and 2017 models outperform all models of iPad Pro. Among the iPad Pros, the best performance is the New iPad Pro of 10.5 inches, followed closely by the iPad Pro 2 12.9 inches.
As for the multi-core CPU tests, the first place was the MacBook Pro of 2017, with a score of 10 261. What's more interesting is that in the second place appears the iPad Pro of 10.5 inches, and in the third the iPad Pro 2 of 12.9 inches, which means that the two new iPads outperformed the MacBook Pro of 2016, which Is significant, considering that the MacBook Pro is quite more expensive and powerful than the iPad Pro.
Then they performed GPU tests, and here the result is overwhelming: the 10.5-inch iPad Pro beats all other devices, with the iPad Pro 2 12.9 inches second, followed by the MacBook Pro 2016, Which is just ahead of its successor of 2017.
Finally, the devices underwent a couple of tests from GFXBench and on this occasion, again, the two models of iPad Pro of 2017 top, the list ahead of all MacBook Pros.
Does this mean that the iPad Pro is faster than the MacBook Pro? not necessarily. To begin with, performance tests are not necessarily representative of real-world performance. The fact that a device obtains a better score in one of these tests does not mean that it will be faster when it is used in day-to-day tasks.
Another factor to take into account is the size of the screens of different devices, as well as their resolution, since both MacBook Pro models have larger screens and higher resolution than the iPad Pros, something that is relevant, especially in The GPU tests. In theory, being more powerful, MacBook Pros should solve the discrepancies, but that does not seem to be the case, judging by the test results.
Be that as it may, these performance tests demonstrate the true power of the second generation of the iPad Pro: your software may be more limited when it comes to truly "pro" tasks, but of course, it is demonstrated that power to perform them if Have.
