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.

Still not answering my question.

But yeah if a certain Youtube channel praises an iPhone then they think it's biased, even with sufficient and valid evidence.

Nice joke anonymous jokers 🤡

If a certain Youtuber praises iPhones, then Indians think that certain channel is biased. Also if they are excessively bashing certain Android phones, then they also get the hate.

So what about MKBHD? We know it is a seriously biased channel but he buys all of the phones himself.

Lol nice joke 🙉 Indians as usual! 😃

When you develop everything in house benchmarks don't work. It's why a 2020 Honda Civic with 180 HP will wipe the floor with a 650 HP 1992 Bugatti even if it's perfectly maintained. Everything's been refined to this point. I was floored by the M1 chip and even independent YouTube reviewers are stunned with its performance.

It was bad PR as benchmarks were trailing behind Android Giants running 10 month old SOC.
Next thing you know they roll out an update that magically increases the Benchmark scores.
As iOS and Android version of the server different benchmark apps totally different.

If Apple put the M1 chipset in the iPad Pro and made it run macOS, 11 out of 10 I would buy one! While I am definitely interested in trying out macOS, I'm not going to buy another laptop. I already have one running Windows 10.

So his reviews are unbiased unlike this Mr Hong joker who can't even afford 100$ smartphone let alone S20 fe and iPhone 11 pro Max.

Afcourse it won't heat up of you are playing Subway Surfers.

Chong Liu's videos are fake. One occassion he actually left the visual settings to high not maximum.

I doubt a S20 Exynos actually loses out to a Redmi Note 8 Pro. S10 Exynos runs well on PUBG Mobile at smooth extreme without throttling, so it's a funny coincidence that S20 Exynos struggles to run it at the same settings.

Genshin is not even optimised on PS4 and multiple users have complained about iOS optimisation. I think this has partially been adressed. I wonder why everyone is using that game to benchmark a phone when it's not actually a fair measure of performance.

That's why business laptop, which priced north 2000$, even now, still offer 'clunky' design & 'outdated' maintenance bay, but highly practical; unlike Macs, which, as ALWAYS, all about 'futuristic' (but fragile & practically hard to repair design); which translate: if broken, u HAVE to buy another one (which at one point will also face the same, if not worse, issues).
Not to mention that MacOS was, is, and will never be as versatile and practical as Windows & Linux (again, it's all about 'stylish' & 'trendy' when it comes to Apple's OS; proven by large percentage of Mac user using Bootcamp)

Wait until you see the performance without emulation, it's would have the performance of roughly a core i9.

But you do make a point, a lot of people choose sub-$1000 laptops.
