If the first benchmark of the new iPad Pro released last week surprised us, the results obtained by the device in the tests of the Laptop Mag are jaw-dropping (and drooling).
It is not for nothing that the performance of the new chip A12X Bionic was so praised by Apple executives Phil Schiller and Anand Shimpi in a recent interview: the new iPad Pro is a performance beast! Even the editor in chief of Laptop Mag He said the new iPad Pro processor almost “spit it out” when it tested the device’s CPU in the lab.

In Geekbench 4, iPad Pro scored multi-core of 17,995, slightly below the result found in the Primate Labs database, but even higher than that of Surface Pro 6 (13,025) and XPS 13 (14,180). The Galaxy Book2 (equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 chip) was eating dust from competitors, with 3,945 points in the same test.
The iPad Pro also achieved the best results in photo and video editing, taking just 7 minutes and 47 seconds to transcode a 12-minute clip in 4K to 1080p from the Adobe Rush app – while the new 13 ″ MacBook Pro took almost 26 minutes to perform the same task, followed by XPS 13 (31min03s) and Surface Pro 6 (31min54s).

The new iPad Pro also surprised in terms of battery, withstanding 13 hours and 14 minutes in the tests of Laptop Mag – much more than 10:41 am on the Galaxy Book2, 9:20 am on the Surface Pro 6 and 8:53 am on the XPS 13. Despite the inclusion of the USB-C connector on the new iPad Pro, it does not offer fast charging, taking about an hour to charge 20% of the battery – however Laptop Mag he said he will carry out further tests in this regard.
