Still waiting for the 2018 iPad Pro (3rd Generation), but here is how the new iPhone XS Max and current iMac Pro compare to four 13-inch MacBook Pros.
2018 MacBook Pro 2.7GHz 4-core = 2018 MacBook Pro 13-inch, 2.7GHz Quad-core i7, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 GPU, 16G of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory, 512GB PCIe based flash storage
2018 iPhone XS Max = 2018 iPhone XS Max, A12 6-core processor, 4G of memory
2017 MacBook Pro 3.5GHz 2-core = 2017 MacBook Retina 13-inch, 3.5GHz Dual-Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 GPU, 16G of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory, 1TB PCIe based flash storage
2016 MacBook Pro 3.3GHz 2-core = 2016 MacBook Retina 13-inch, 3.3GHz Dual-Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Graphics 550 GPU, 16G of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory, 1TB PCIe based flash storage
2017 iPad Pro 2.3GHz 3-core = 2017 iPad Pro 12.9 inch (iPad7,2 - 2nd Generation), 2.39GHz A10X processor, 4G of memory, 512GB flash storage
2017 MacBook Pro 2.3GHz 2-core = 2017 MacBook Retina 13-inch, 2.3GHz Dual-Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 GPU, 8G of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory, 256G PCIe based flash storage
Geekbench 4 CPU
The OVERALL score is a combination of integer, floating-point, and memory performance. (HIGHEST Score = FASTEST)
Geekbench 4 GPU Compute (Metal)
The GPU various tests range from image processing to computer vision to number crunching. (HIGHEST Score = FASTEST)
It is a cross-platform intensive graphics performance analysis with game-like content.. All the game simulations were run in 1080p Offscreen mode to make it a fair fight. (HIGHEST number in Frames per Second = FASTEST)
We don't have a new iPad Pro Gen 3 yet, but the iPhone XS Max with A12 processor hints at the performance we can expect.
