We recently commented on an alleged benchmark which revealed some interesting features of one of the possible models of iPhones that will be launched this year.
Now, benchmarks of a possible new MacBook Pro, obtained through the Geekbench, indicate that the next Apple notebook will be equipped with the latest generation of chips from Intel, of the microarchitecture called “Coffee Lake”.
Under the name MacBookPro15,2, it is possible that the MacBook described is the 13 ″, since this model from last year received the name MacBookPro14,2.
The results of the benchmark indicate that the notebook should have the new Intel processor Core i7-8559U (quad-core). In addition, the base frequency of the CPU is 2.7 GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz) and can operate up to 28W, an incredible feature of Intel U-series CPUs.
The scores of the alleged new MacBook Pro also surprised one of the tests. The notebook achieved 4,448 points in the single-core test and 16,607 in the multi-core test. Compared to results obtained by Primate Labs – developer of Geekbench – for the 13 ″ MacBook Pro of 2017, average speeds are 4,600 single-core and 9,500 multi-core.
THE benchmark it also indicates that the device has 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM of 2.133MHz – the same option as the MacBook Pro of 15 ″ of 2017, but with twice the capacity of the current model of 13 ″. With that, the question remains: will Apple double the native memory capacity of the new notebooks?
Another interesting point of the benchmark is that the version of macOS that is running on the machine is 10.13.6, build 17G2110, which is close to the latest version of High Sierra – and not Mojave -, released for developers. This indicates that Apple may be planning to launch the new MacBooks before the final version of Mojave, scheduled for mid / late September.
It is not possible to trust the results presented catholically since, nowadays, it is easy to simulate or falsify results like this. In addition, the device can be a prototype or test hybrid, created for internal experiments. Time will tell.
