We can better compare what are the technical differences between the two processors. The processor Nvidia Tegra X1 T210 has a larger number of cores, the turbo frequency of Nvidia Tegra X1 T210 is bigger, that the PDT of Apple A4 is lower. The Nvidia Tegra X1 T210 was started more recently.

Performances :

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

AnTuTu - Total score
Nvidia Tegra X1 T210#ad 224,500
Apple A4#ad 5,100

The difference is 4302%.

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.

Geekbench 4 - Multi-core & single core score - Android & iOS 64-bit
Nvidia Tegra X1 T210#ad 1,158
Apple A4#ad 211

In single core, the difference is 449%. In multi-core, the difference in terms of gap is 1453%.

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.
