According to the benchmarks, Apple could raise the performance bar for top-end MacBook Pros. A device named “MacBookPro14,3” is present on GeekBench listings. The MacBook features an Intel’s Coffee Lake-based Core i7-8750H with a running at a base frequency of 2.21GHz. This might seem a bit slower when compared to current MacBook Pros’ performance but when a need arises it can go up to 4.1GHz. The thing that makes it different from the rest is that it features six cores whereas the current top model has got only four.
The benchmarks show that this model scores 4902 in Single-thread benchmark and staggering 22,316 points in multi-thread. This score puts it miles ahead of any competing MacBook. The MacBook in the second place scores 16,999.
The WWDC might be an excellent opportunity to reveal this MacBook especially because the last Pro update came in conjunction with WWDC 2017.
This MacBook also comes with 32 Gigs of DDR4 RAM. The previous MacBooks had a maximum capacity of 16 Gigs and it was being speculated that this year Apple might stick with the same option.
Though, the WWDC keynotes are mostly related to software such as macOS 10.14, iOS 12, tvOS 12, and watchOS 5. It is also expected that Apple might introduce new 12-inch MacBooks, and upgrades to Siri and ARKit.
The WWDC has started on the 4th of June and we are expecting the usual topics to be discussed but there is hope that Apple might introduce some new hardware such as the new MacBook and the much expected iPhone SE 2018.
