A new MacBook device made an appearance on Geekbench yesterday sporting a powerful Intel chip.
The MacBook device, labeled “MacBookPro14,3,” was spotted in Geekbench listings. It’s using Intel’s Core-i7-8750H processor, which is part of the Coffee Lake family.
The base clock speed of the chip is 2.20 gigahertz, slower than current Pros, but features a boost up to 4.1 GHz. The chip also features six cores whereas current MacBook Pros have four.
The Geekbench listing gives the mystery device a single-core score of 4,902 and a multi-core score of 22,316. The multi-core score is higher than any other MacBook, the closest sporting a score of 16,999.
Additionally, the device is equipped with 32 GB of RAM. 2017 MacBook Pros have maximum 16GB.
Geekbench is a cross-platform CPU benchmarking tool. It scores separately for single-core and multi-core speed and simulates real-world work loads.
Rumours indicate the refresh will be coming later this year.
