When Apple updated its product line MacBooks Pro at the beginning of the week without much ado, Apple’s proposal was just one: to give more firepower to its professional line (?) of portable computers – upgrading the processors to the latest Intel lines only proves this point. The good news is that, at least in the harsh coldness of the numbers, the company’s goal has been achieved.
In benchmarks published this morning in the Geekbench, the new top-of-the-line MacBook Pro (with an eight-core 2.3GHz Core i9 processor) performed brutally better than its predecessor. The machine achieved a single core score of 5,879, while the score multi-cores was absurd 29,184.
For comparison, the previous generation’s top-of-the-line MacBook Pro (equipped with the Core i9-9980HK processor) had a score of 5,348 for single-core measurement, and 22,620 for multiple-core measurement. This represents jumps of 10% and 29%, respectively – Apple is advertising a 40% performance gain in the new generation, but referring to certain 3D tasks such as rendering in Autodesk Maya; in other types of work, the perception of improvements should be slightly lower.
Still, there is no doubt that the most expensive new MacBook Pro must be quite a machine. The problem is that, for R $ 24,500, very little people will have access to that kind of power.
