As expected, early benchmarks show the iPad Air 5 scores identically to the 11-inch iPad Pro thanks to both devices using the M1 processor.

Reviewers are running the iPad Air 5 through Geekbench, and the scores don’t show anything surprising. In fact, the numbers only differ by what can be attributed to rounding errors and per-run changes.

The iPad Air 5 is listed as “iPad13,17” in Geekbench, and it shows a 1711 single-core score and 7233 multi-core score in one CPU test. Which is similar to the 11-inch iPad Pro with a 1718 single-core score and 7313 multi-core score.

The Metal score, which determines GPU performance, shows 21,539 for one of the iPad Air 5 tests. The 11-inch iPad Pro shows a 21,498.

Geekbench gets these scores by running a series of benchmark tests in an iOS app. The scores can be affected by battery charge level, external temperature, and other factors. Which explains the different numbers across tests and devices running the same chipset.
