Arm-based processor vs x86 architecture in global traditional & matrix workloads 2020

As of performance tests carried out in 2020 between heterogeneous compute and traditional x86 processor architecture, it was found that for traditional workloads, heterogenous compute was lower in performance as compared to the x86 architecture. However, for matrix workloads, those which require large amounts of data to be rapidly processed, the performance of heterogeneous compute architecture was 50 times better than the x86 architecture.

Performance of heterogeneous compute vs traditional x86 processor architecture in traditional and matrix workloads worldwide as of 2020

Supplementary notes

In the study, the representative Heterogeneous Compute system is the Arm-based Apple iPhone 11. The traditional architecture is the latest x86 PC system based on the latest Intel i7-1065G7 technology.
The source defines the term heterogeneous compute architecture as a combination of CPUs, accelerators, NPUs, ASICs, a GPU, and FPGAs.
