Apple has had a rough couple of weeks, marked by legal setbacks, an underwhelming product launch and a controversial management shakeup.

Today the outfit is getting some positive coverage. Apple’s new A6X processor has been benchmarked and as expected it’s a beast. The SoC was taken for a spin in Geekbench and it scored 1757.
