MediaTek Dimensity 1200 vs Apple A12 Bionic benchmark which processor is better

MediaTek Dimensity 1200 vs Apple A12 Bionic

Comparisons   11-03-2021
   So, which chip or processor is better? Detailed compare data of benchmarks MediaTek Dimensity 1200 vs Apple A12 Bionic, speed testing of GPUs Apple A12 Bionic and Mali-G77 MC9.

   This performance comparison involves two processors: Dimensity 1200 is octa-core (ARM Cortex-A78) and A12 Bionic is gexa-core (Vortex). Both processors went throughpower consumption test and battery life test. A careful review of all the specifications, to make it easier to understand, is made by the table.

   From the video comparison, you can get the results of joint benchmarking in software tests such as Octane V2, AnTuTu, Quadrant, WebXPRT 3, Vellamo, GFXBench, Mozilla Kraken, Neocore, Geekbench 5, 3DMark, PCMark, PassMark, even the gaming performance of CPUs in Real Racing 3, Minecraft Bedrock, Call of Duty: Mobile, Mortal Kombat, Sniper 3D, Garena Free Fire - The Cobra, PUBG, Fortnite etc.

   After looking at the data these benchmarks and videos, you already be able to know which processors is better to buy Dimensity 1200 or A12 Bionic and which chip is better for gaming: Madout2, CSR Racing 2, Asphalt 9, Need for Speed No Limits.
