In this article, we saw an interesting reflection on the Apple iPad Pro 2017, a tablet aimed at the professional market that stands out for having a very powerful hardware configuration.
The most striking of the components it incorporates is the new Apple A10X SoC, a chip that mounts a 2.4 GHz six-core processor and a high-performance PowerVR graphics solution. Its 4 GB of RAM complete a very balanced set of specifications.
We knew that the new 10.5-inch Pro iPad (and also the 12.9-core iPad share) was going to be a true performance-level monster, but we did not expect it to be able to outperform a MacBook Pro in some tests.
The graphs that we accompany speak for themselves, and in them we can see how the versions of 10.5 and 12.9 inches of the Apple iPad Pro 2017 manage to surpass in three tests to the MacBook Pro 2017.
It is clear that the comparative may not be quite fair since we talk about different platforms (iOS and macOS) and that optimization can play a key role in favor of one or the other, but in any case is very interesting as it ultimately demonstrates that the new professional tablets offer fantastic performance.
On the other hand, there is no doubt that the concept and the operating system they use may not be a viable option for many professional users, who will prefer a MacBook Pro and macOS, but the Apple iPad Pro 2017 deserve a minimum recognition by the power they are able to offer.
