Apple A14 Bionic vs Snapdragon 865+ comparison: Apple has launched its most powerful chipset yet. And the 2020 iPad Air was the first Apple product to rock it before the now iPhone 12 series.
Which brings us to the most asked question right now in the mobile chipset world. The Apple A14 Bionic vs Snapdragon 865+, which is the best?
First, the Apple A14 bionic is the world’s first 5nm chip. Which is 2nanometer smaller than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ (7nm). It means in graphics processing and battery efficiency, the A14 bionic would boss over Snapdragon 865+.
However when it comes to the Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI & ML) segment. Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ rules. As it does delivers 15 trillions AI operations per second. But the A14 bionic could only delivers 11 trillions per second.
In the area of CPU, the Snapdragon 865+ is the first Android chip to clock 3.1 GHz frequency with an octa-core (8 cores) processor. While Apple A14 bionic does has an hexa-core (6 cores) processor. Which is two cores less than the eight found in the SD 865+.
But here is a plot twist, in performance, the Apple A14 bionic chip surpass the Snapdragon 865+ both in single core and multi cores test. Hence the A14 bionic chip wins the CPU segment.
Lastly, for the first time Apple chipset (A14 bionic) is supporting a 5G network. So both chpisets here are 5G enabled.
So having given an in-depth yet simple review and comparison of both chipsets, I would conclude by saying both SoCs have their strength and weakness.
While the A14 bionic is majorly good in GPU and battery efficiency, the Snapdragon 865+ on the other hand bosses the display and AI & ML world. So I’d say you should find the strength you love in both chips. And also look out for the weakness of these two that you can manage. Then you’d just be fine.
