Not the "A14X", but the Apple M1 of the Mac is in the new iPad Pro. But that & APOs; s not all: up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 2 TB twice as fast memory, 5G, Thunderbolt and an ultra-wide angle camera at the front are also new. And in 12.9 inches, mini LED technology for the liquid retina XDR display is available for the first time.
With the new generation iPad Pro, the tablet becomes even more an alternative for MacBook or Notebook. Starting with the processor, this comparison is no coincidence, because instead of the expected "A14X Bionic", an improved version of the A14 Bionic from the iPhone 12 family, Apple has opted directly for the M1 from the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and the new IMAC.
And Apple has not opted for any M1, but relies on the full version with 8-core GPU, regardless of the chosen tablet size with 11.0 and 12.9 inches. The SOC, also equipped with 8-core CPU and 16-core neural engine, is passively cooled in the iPad Pro as in the MacBook Air, while MacBook Pro, Mac Mini and IMAC fans maintain high performance. Compared to the A12Z Bionic, Apple promotes up to 50 percent more CPU and up to 40 percent more GPU performance.
Up to 16 GB of RAM and 2 TB memory
What & APOs; s unusual for Apple is advertising with information about the installed memory, but if you can brag about 16 GB, then Apple does it for the first time. 16 GB RAM is available on the models with 1 TB or 2 TB storage space, 8 GB RAM on the models with 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB of storage space. The new flash memory should work at twice the speed regardless of the size.
