The SoC of the next-generation iPhones, likely to be called the Apple A14, could represent a significant further step in terms of performance compared to the chip that precedes it (found for example in the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max and even SE 2020). According to the latest rumors that have emerged on the Net, the CPU power could rise by as much as 40%, and that of the GPU as much as 50%. Unfortunately there is not much other ancillary information accompanying the tweet.
A14 compared to A13
CPU + 40%
GPU + 50%

In short, it seems that even this year Apple will remain the queen of benchmarks; for the moment the rumors about Snapdragon 875 have not gone into too much detail, but it could be really difficult to be able to fill such a gap. After all, for the Apple chips this year the race for performance is one of the top priorities: in the coming months the first proprietary processors for Mac computers will also be released, also based on ARM architecture – in fact they should be enhanced versions of the iPhone chips, such as it has so far been for the Apple A ** X dedicated to iPads.
The point is that Apple must be able to prove that its processors will be able to function properly even on desktop operating systems. The issue is by no means a foregone conclusion: poor performance is one of the main reasons why the Windows ARM enterprise has not yet taken off as hoped.
