MacBook Air gets over 1 million points in AnTuTu, wipes the floor with an iPad Pro

23 November 2020
While the A12Z chipset in the iPad uses older cores, it is - or rather, was - Apple's fastest chipset, faster than even the A14 in the iPhone 12.

I am writing this on my MacBook Air M1, running windows 10 on Parallels. I must say that M1 Macbook Air runs faster, smoother than my i7 8 core laptop, especially in cases when, like right now I run 29 apps, have loads of tabs open on Windows Firefox as well many more on Safari over MacOS, but still the Mac is on 40 degrees C (ranging from 40 to 55 depending how intensive a task is--- around 40 C when I don't use Parallels / Windows), and fanless (no noise) and everything is snappy like I run just only one app. If I replicate this on my pc everything will be slower, there will be freezes and stuttering when apps are being maximized and delays until the app is ready to go and it will be hot and noisy. It would be impossible to use my pc on battery with so many apps open whereas the mac is doing all this on battery.

Well thats interesting but i bet my whole salary army uses a lot better devices,
And many researchlabs too.
Tianhe 2 is just an example.

MrHong, 25 Nov 2020Probably running on custom ROM with modified GPU drivers.No, im not. Im on stock oxygen os android 10.
Try 60 fps option to see if it improves. None of the videos of sd865 i saw dropped to 22.

Beethoven, 25 Nov 2020Sad to say it's a hardware problem theres no solution ... moreYes... It is a hardware problem.
In 2020, No Additional cooling = Thermal throttling performance (as processors have got so powerful and generate lot more heat than their slower flagship counterparts from years back.)

Compare it to some device which has proper cooling.
It doesn't lag in those phones.
IPhone has pedestrian performance in heavy games where it lags.
Keep your cheap throttling mess to yourself.

Throttled iPhone 12 still wipes a OnePlus 8 Pro when run cooled.

Android Authority, 25 Nov 2020It's all over the Internet in heavy games and repeated... moreWhy repeatedly mention those videos? Gary Explains already showed there is only little throttling in iPhone 12 in Speed Test G. Same methodology in iPhone 11 Pro Max caused significant 15% throttling. Probably down to poor optimisation.

Android Authority, 25 Nov 2020It's all over the Internet in heavy games and repeated... moreIf one wants throttlefree performance, they can choose from a wide variety of phones in the Android world. In iOS world, they are stuck with 4 models, all of which throttle in day to day use.

Giving users what they want - Another victory for Android in the smartphone domain.
No wonder Android wins OS of choice on smartphones Award every year.
Crushing the competition every year. It's just Addicted to WINNING! and the consumers win because of this approach as well.

Mediatek sux, 25 Nov 2020Yeah? You tested ? Wheres the video? It's all over the Internet in heavy games and repeated Antutu benchmarks where other phones are throttle free or showcase minimum throttling unlike iPhone where there is 20% decrease in performance.
Cheap company failed to put any kind of cooling solution.

Beethoven, 25 Nov 2020It still overheating throttling crap 😢Yeah? You tested ? Wheres the video?

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2020Apple paid them. It was bad PR as benchmarks were trailing... moreWhat server? Who knows if they paid or not. Im just waiting for that guy to upload actual throttling and gaming videos.

MrHong, 25 Nov 2020Then you don't have the phone and never tested it. ... moreWho said i had your phone? I said i have better fps on my device, which only has sd 855. Im not basing this off of chong lius videos.
