Geekbench has come out with a whole set of new benchmark results and the scores of the new iPad Pro are featured among them as well.

The single-core and multi-core benchmarking scores of the new iPad Pro are 5,025 and 18,106 respectively, which is based on the average of two benchmarking results. These results make it the fastest iPad Pro ever launched by Apple. The scores are comparable to the performance of the newest 15-inch MacBook Pro launched by Apple earlier this year with Intel i7 hexacore processors.

As seen in the chart below, the scores of the new iPad Pro rivals that of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Intel i7 2.6GHz processor, and that is impressive. In comparison the price of the iPad Pro is Rs 71,900 while the MacBook Pro 15-inch starts from Rs 224,900.

Apple iPad Pro (2018): Specifications and Price

Apple is introducing the new 2018 iPad Pro in 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes like in the past, but the devices have much smaller footprint thanks to the new edge-to-edge display design. While newer iPhones feature an OLED display, the new iPad Pro sticks to Retina LCD displays but offers higher resolution and pixel density. In terms of design, the new iPad Pro features a boxier design that we last saw on iPhone 5 series. The new iPad Pro can be described as perfect amalgamation of older and newer design language.

One of the major changes is the end of Touch ID and with this Apple has finally migrated to Face ID as the primary method of biometric authentication on its devices. On the iPad Pro, Face ID works in both portrait as well as landscape modes. Since there is no Touch ID, Apple is implementing same gesture support we first saw on the iPhone X last year.

Besides Touch ID, the real surprise is Apple’s decision to switch over to USB Type-C port. Apple switched to USB Type-C ports for charging as well as data transfer with the launch of MacBook Pro, and now it is doing so with the iPad as well. This strongly suggests that next year s iPhone will also move to USB Type-C as the whole industry now supports USB Type-C port.

In terms of hardware, the iPad Pro is powered by Apple A12X Bionic, an octa-core CPU with 10 billion transistors, on in words, it is a faster version of Apple A12 Bionic CPU, which is the chip found on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, and iPhone XR. There is also an updated seven-core GPU under the hood, and support for up to 1TB storage. There is no denying that these new A12X chips are the fastest mobile CPU yet in the market.

Alongside the new iPad Pro, Apple also launched the second generation Apple Pencil with magnetic connection for Rs 10,900. The new Space Grey Smart Keyboard Folio is priced at Rs 15,900 for the 11-inch model, and Rs 17,900 for the 12.9-inch model.
