Apple iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9 Specs & Price – Fastest Mobile Chipsets

0

Apple has claims that the Apple iPad Pro is more powerful than 92% of laptops out there and it’s running the full-blown versions of Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk AutoCAD and, yes, it could easily transform into a laptop-like device with keyboard or even a desktop with an external monitor.

The new Apple A12X Bionic chipset is a proper beast and it can handle desktop tasks with ease. It still has an octa-core processor (4 big, 4 small), but now all eight cores can run at full throttle. The GPU has been upgraded to a 7-core design. Compared to previous iPad Pros, you get 35% faster single-core and 90% (!) faster multi-core performance.

When it comes to the display unit, with thinner bezels, Apple fit larger screen in the same body on the iPad Pro 11 and the same screen in a smaller body on iPad Pro 12.9.

The new tablets comes in 11-inch and 12.9-inch, in both cases with super-sharp Liquid Retina displays with rounded corners. As part of the slimming down of bezels, Apple dropped the Touch ID sensor in favor of Face ID. An added benefit is that the tablet now rotates its screen based on your face rather than relying on the sometimes unreliable accelerometer.

The iPad Pro was also demoed handling an insane 3GB PSD file with 170 layers and 12,000 x 12,000px resolution – big enough to print on a huge poster. But why print when Adobe’s Project Aero can turn it into an interactive AR presentation. Back to Photoshop, the UI may have been fully re-imagined for touch (and Pencil control), but the engine is a port of the full desktop app. The Pencil now supports a double tap gesture that switches between tools in Photoshop and does whatever devs want it to in other apps.

The new iPad Pros are available for pre-order today and ship out on November 7. There are Wi-Fi only and LTE versions (with nanoSIM and eSIM). They come bundled with a fast 18W charger.
