There’s a new iPad Pro and it might be more powerful than the most powerful MacBook Pro.

At least, that’s what Geekbench says. According to the popular benchmarking software’s website (as spotted by MSPowerUser) the new iPad Pro’s single and multi-core scores are 22 and 25 percent faster than the 2023 MacBook Pro. It should be noted that the new iPad starts at $999, while the MacBook is a full $1,000 more than that.

Of course, there’s a reason the tablet has a higher Geekbench score than the laptop: the M4 chip powering it. Apple’s latest in-house silicon debuted in the new iPad Pro, and it’s not really surprising that M4 would be faster than the M3 Pro chip powering the MacBook Pro. At least, not on paper, but a tablet being more powerful than a laptop is still pretty cool.

Apple first confirmed the existence of the new iPad Pro during an event on Tuesday. It comes in 11-inch and 13-inch models, features an OLED screen for the first time, and is being marketed as Apple’s thinnest ever device. And on top of all that, it might be more powerful than the best MacBook Pro.
