Performance comparison with the Cinebench R23 benchmark platform for computer processors:

Cinebench R23 - Multi-Thread & Single Thread Score
Apple A12Z Bionic 980
Microsoft SQ3 565
Microsoft SQ2 238
Microsoft SQ1 374

Cinebench R23 is cross-platform testing software that allows you to assess the hardware capabilities of a device such as a computer, tablet, server. This version of Cinebench takes into account recent developments in processors with multiple cores and the latest improvements in rendering techniques. The evaluation is ultimately even more relevant. The test scene contains no less than 2,000 objects and more than 300,000 polygons in total.

With Windows: performance comparison with Geekbench 5 and the Windows operating system.
