HUGHE difference of ADC 12bit-vs-14bit S:N!

Still, there is no doubt that the S:N of an ideal ADC
is related to bit depth. An ADC's ideal SNR is 6.02N+1.76 dB, where N
is the bit depth.

...That translates about 86 dB (14bit) vs. 72 dB (12bit). That's massive .

I wonder if we are missing something here.
