    seeing that benchmarks show that a11x is as fast as an i5 ,I think that apple should offer it on tablets aiming to replace laptop tts iPad Pro 12 inches

    The current iPads are overkill already in speed and processing power for the apps that's available for it. Aside from obsessing with benchmark numbers, why specifically do we want A11X? Maybe for iOS12 with MicroLED Pros next year. Should be perfect when Apple will finally give us Mac + iOS apps integration.

    What will that performance increase provide for you that the current processor doesn't?

    Unlike laptops/desktops the tablet has a number of limitations, specifically with multitasking, ram and storage. How will a faster processor over-come those limitations?

    More than the actual speed on day to day use the bionic chip helps with Face ID and AR based applications.

    But you're asking about replacing laptops with the iPad, the iPhone's use of the Bionic chip is immaterial because you're not looking to use the iPhone to replace a laptop.

    As it stands for some people the current iPads can and do replace laptops, for many others, it cannot. The use of a faster chip (in my opinion) does not in any way alter the equation, so if the iPad Pro in 2017 cannot replace a laptop for your needs, then a new iPad Pro with the A11 Bionic will not either

    I'd welcome more power in my iPad Pro 10.5, but I don't necessarily need it.
