A week ago, Apple released new options for customizing the MacBook Pro with Radeon Pro Vega GPUs. And it was not long before the first benchmarks popped by a. The results? Better than those obtained by MacBooks Pro equipped with the Radeon Pro 560X, of course, but they are not surprising.
In the forum of MacRumors, one user shared results obtained on his MacBook Pro equipped with Intel Core i7 processor (2.6GHz), 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD and graphics Radeon Pro Vega 20, which reached a score of 72,799 in the OpenCL test. In the Geekbench database, we see even greater results: 80,002(!).
The Metal Performance (framework developed by Apple) of the new GPUs has also risen exponentially on the new MacBooks Pro equipped with Pro Vega graphics. In the test released by the reader of MacRumos, the score was 73,643, while the one on Geekbench was 73,953.
Comparatively, machines with similar configurations and equipped with Radeon Pro 560X cards achieved about 65,000 in OpenCL tests and 57,000 In Metal performance the results of Radeon Pro Vega 16 have not been released yet.
That is, we're talking about 23% (OpenCL) and 29% (Metal) better performance here with the Radeon Pro Vega 20 GPU. Not bad!
