Last month, Apple announced next-generation M1 iPad Pro models: 12.9-inch and 11-inch. Powered by Apple Silicon, the company claimed that the new models are 50% faster than their previous models powered by the A12Z Bionic chip. And early Greekbench scores substantiate Apple’s claims.
The embargo on the new M1 iPad Pro and M1 iMac will lift next week on May 18 and 19, respectively. So, before tech analysts share comprehensive reviews of the new devices, these early benchmark scores give us an estimation of the new iPad Pro’s performance.

If comparing the average scores of 7282 (M1 iPad Pro) and 4656 (2020 iPad Pro), makes the new model approximately 56% faster. The high performance is because of M1’s system on a chip architecture makes Apple Silicon a powerful processor which delivers great performance and incredible battery life.
With M1, iPad Pro is the fastest device of its kind. It’s designed to take full advantage of next‑level performance and custom technologies like the advanced image signal processor and unified memory architecture of M1. And with the incredible power efficiency of M1, iPad Pro is still thin and light with all‑day battery life, making it as portable as it is powerful. – Apple
