Apple also introduced a new iPad Air during its last event. We'll focus on what drives the show, however, as this will be the most powerful iPad Air thanks to the new Apple A14 Bionic chip.
Apple's goal is to build a chip with industry-leading performance, high-performance custom technologies, and extremely efficient energy consumption. It also wants to make every one of its products best in class, ”and it seems that new iPad Air users will get the most of those words. Because the new iPad Air with its new A14 Bionic, which was developed with 5 nm process technology, is equipped with the latest silicon process technology.
The scale of this new process is so small that the dimensions of the 5 nm transistors are measured in atoms, and it allows Apple to pack 11.8 billion transistors into the A14 Bionic, an increase of nearly 40 percent over that corresponds to the last 7 nm chip. More transistors also mean new functions, higher energy efficiency and higher performance in almost all chip aspects. This new architecture executes more instructions in parallel and offers better performance with lower performance in its new 6-core chip design that offers two high-performance cores and four high-performance cores. This makes the CPU 40 percent faster than the previous iPad Air model.
The A14 Bionic also features Apple's latest GPU architecture, scaled for maximum sustained performance, and provides 30 percent faster graphics without the need for high performance. To put this in perspective, the new iPad Air offers graphics performance twice as fast as a standard laptop that is larger, thicker and heavier. So if you want to edit 4K videos, create a masterpiece, or just play your favorite games, the new iPad Air with the A14 Bionic will do the job with ease.
In addition, the A14 Bionic has a much faster Neural Motor thanks to its 16-core architecture. Thanks to its machine learning accelerator
