Apple's next MacBook Pro could see a beefy upgrade to its processor and memory, according to a hardware listing rumor discovered at GeekBench. The "MackBookPro14,3" appeared recently with Intel's latest i7 Core processor plus more ram running at higher speeds.
The GeekBench performance score for the "MacBookPro14,3" landed at 4,092 for single-core usage and 22,316 for multi-core usage. This is a huge step up from the 15-inch model released last year, which scored 16,999 on the multi-score performance test.
The improved performance of the "MacBookPro14,3" comes from significant upgrades in the processor and memory. The laptop will use the Intel Core i7-8750H processor, which sports 6 cores and 12 threads. That is two extra cores than the previous model and explains why the new laptop outperforms the old despite the processor frequency running at a lower speed (2.21 GHz vs 3.10 GHz). However, the eight-generation Intel CPU does speed boosts up to 4.1 GHz.
Meanwhile, the memory is stepping up from 16 GB of DDR3 Ram to an impressive 32 GB of DDR4 ram. This not only translates into double the memory for the "MacBookPro14,3" but also memory that runs at higher speeds so data can move around faster.
