Apple's Upcoming A10X Chip Makes Its Predecessor Look Weak In Comparison
Apple is reportedly working on an A10X super chip that will likely blow its predecessors away.
Last year, Apple unveiled its iPad Pro alongside iPhone 6s. While 6s enjoyed much of the attention, iPad Pro was seen as a functional office-oriented tablet that could be seen as an alternative to a laptop. The tablet sported the A9X chip, a component much more powerful than the A9 inside the iPhone 6s.
A10X Chip is 28 Percent Superior Than A9X
According to Techtastic, A10X chip is the advanced version of the A10, which currently runs the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. If the trend continues, A10X will likely be included in the next iPad Pro 2 models.
A10X chip is two times more powerful than the recent A9X. The latest chip is given a multiprocessor score of 6,588 while the A9X got 4,990. If these numbers are true and the latest chip comes in the upcoming iPad Pro 2, it would definitely exceed the performance of A9X big time.
