Is iPad Pro 9.7" 2.16Ghz, 2.18Ghz, or 2.16Ghz?...

    Depends on the day, but usually I live all over.
    I was looking around google and here on MR, and noticed that some people are reporting the iPad Pro 9.7" having differing clock speeds. I know the 12.9" is more powerful at 2.24Ghz, but why does the 9.7" have differing speeds (one 9.7" says it's higher at 2.26Ghz... than the 12.9's 2.24Ghz, but it still gets a lower benchmark score, why?)

    EDIT*** Can a mod fix the thread title to say 2.26Ghz (on the last speed I wrote in the title?) Thanks. :)

    It's 2.16GHz. The slightly lower benchmark scores is down to the lower clock (4.6%) and less RAM.

    Then again it has to push less pixels with the same GPU, so it might actually be faster in some cases. Most of the stuff we do on these things are GPU limited (unless you compile video and such).

    true, but doesn't GPU performance get tested in Benchmark Tests?

    It does in some cases. In benchmarks such as 3DMark and GFXBench. But 90% of the benchmark scores you see posted around here is from Geekbench, which is a pure CPU/RAM test.

    Anandtech usually has benchmarks for all aspects of the device. Here is the page for the iPad pro 12.9" GPU benchmarks:

    Mines reporting 2.26 in geek bench score
