The iPad Pro is already faster than a MacBook Pro of 2017 in some tests

At the speed at which Apple is evolving its ARM processors for iOS devices, it was only a matter of time before this happened; According to some tests that measure the performance of CPUs and GPUs on different devices, in some cases the A10X of the new iPad Pro that Apple has just released exceeds the Intel Core i7 in the 13-inch MacBook Pro With Retina display. Yes, you read well ... in some tests, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is faster than a MacBook Pro with Core i7 , which costs about three times more . It is only in some tests, but even in which the iPad is not faster, yes that is quite close. It is really exciting if we see that the iPad is a product that has only seven years of life.
The tests have been done with a tool that exists for both MacOS and iOS, the popular Geekbench . In the single core performance test, ie using only one of the CPU cores, the MacBook Pro wins but not by a big difference.

However, let's see what happens when we put all of the A10X cores of the iPad Pro to work at the same time ... incredibly the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is faster than last year's MacBook Pro. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro that went on sale this year 2017, is still faster but by a very small difference.

Now let's move on to the GPU. The graphics processor, in this case, is integrated into one of the layers of the A10X in the iPad Pro. It is a PowerVR Series 7XT 12-core. The MacBook Pro is an Iris Plus developed by Intel, a 550 in the case of the 2016 model, and a 650 in the case of the model of the year 2017. In this case, The iPad Pro is very similar or directly faster than the MacBook Pro of the year 2016, and curiously faster than the model of this year 2017.

In the 3D performance test are also significantly faster new iPad Pro than the last two models of MacBook Pro.

This is not to say that the iPad Pro can replace a MacBook Pro, but in tests of CPU performance and especially GPU, can be faster. Each machine is for each type of user, and while NewCydiaTweaks think that there is still much that an iPad can be as versatile and useful as a laptop, we are also clear that the iPad is already an excellent computer, outstanding in all Senses, very valid for millions of people around the world ... especially those who draw and watch many TV series
