With the launch of the iPad Air just two days away now, AppleInsider reports that some very impressive benchmark test figures have been published today via performance analytics firm, Primate Labs.
Using its Geekbench Browser, Primate Labs has found that the A7 system-on-a-chip inside the iPad Air appears to show a huge performance leap from the previous iPads.
AppleInsider reports that Primate Labs founder John Poole compiled the figures using iPad Airs running the Geekbench 3 benchmark, and the compared their performance with all iOS 7-compatible tablets, i.e., the iPad 2, and the third and fourth gen iPad and iPad mini.
As you can see from the chart, the iPad Air dominates over all the previous iPads, coming out an impressive 87% ahead of the fourth-gen iPad as far as the multi-core benchmark is concerned. As AppleInsider notes, these figures would seem to support Appleâ€™s statement that the A7 chip has twice the performance of the previous A6X processor.
Looking good, iPad Air!
