Available for pre-order on April 30, the iPad Pro’s M1 chip has an 8-core CPU design that delivers up to 50 percent faster CPU performance than the A12Z Bionic, while its 8-core GPU is in a class of its own. When combined with the next-generation 16-core Apple Neural Engine, an advanced image signal processor (ISP), a unified, high-bandwidth memory architecture with up to 16GB of memory, 2x faster storage, and up to 2TB capacity, the new iPad Pro could be the laptop replacement you’ve been looking for.
