The 'late 2018' iPad Pro 12.9-inch 3rd Generation is often used for web surfing using the iOS version of Apple Safari. There are various benchmarks that measure the speed at which it can process high level and low level functions.
iPad Pro Gen3 = 2018 iPad Pro 12.9in, A12X Bionic processor, Apple 7-core GPU
iPad Pro Gen2 = 2017 iPad Pro 12.9in, A10X Fusion processor, PowerVR GPU
Part of the BrowserBench suite, it measures the responsiveness of web applications. (HIGHEST runs per minute = FASTEST)
V8 Web Tooling Benchmark
Runs six workloads (Photo Enhancement, Organize Album, Stock Option Pricing, Encrypt Notes/OCR Scan, Sales Graphs, and Online Homework). (HIGHEST score = FASTEST)
BaseMark Web 3.0
A browser benchmark from the same group that produced Basemark ES 3.1/Metal which we used in a previous test page. To get the best rating, close all tabs and quit all other browsers. (HIGHEST score = FASTEST)
Part of the BrowserBench suite, it is designed to put browser graphics systems to the test. (HIGHEST score = FASTEST)
The iPad Pro Generation 3 is from 23% to 66% faster running browser functions compared to the iPad Pro Generation 2.
