Performances :

Performance comparison between the two processors, for this we consider the results generated on benchmark software such as Geekbench 4.

AnTuTu - Total score
Apple A14 Bionic 562,639
Apple A4 5,100

The difference is 10932%.

AnTuTu is one of the most popular apps in the world to evaluate and compare the power of a mobile device with the competition. It tests above all the power of calculation, the display of Web pages, the modeling of decorations in 3D, the management of the memory, the transfer of data.

On iOS 64-bit :

Geekbench 4 - Multi-core & single core score - iOS 64-bit
Apple A14 Bionic 6,654
Apple A4 211

In single core, the difference is 3054%. In multi-core, the difference in terms of gap is 7881%.

Geekbench 4 is a complete benchmark platform with several types of tests, including data compression, images, AES encryption, SQL encoding, HTML, PDF file rendering, matrix computation, Fast Fourier Transform, 3D object simulation, photo editing, memory testing. This allows us to better visualize the respective power of these devices. For each result, we took an average of 250 values on the famous benchmark software.
