Although the Apple MacBook Pros 2018 only showed modest gains in single-core and graphics performance, early Multi-core benchmarks jumped compared to 2017.
So far, 15-inch MacBook Pros show multi-core profits of 39 to 46 percent, while 13-inch systems say it's 81 to 86 percent, according to Primate Labs founder John Poole. The increases are mainly driven by additional cores – from two to four in 13-inch pros and four to six in 15-inch models – as well as higher turbo boost frequencies.
The 15-inch laptops have the added benefit of switching to faster DDR4 memory. 13-inch pros still use DDR3, Poole notes.
"Interestingly enough, the 13-inch 2018 models with the 15-inch models make 2017 in both single-core and multi-core performance He added the new 13 "MacBook Pro 2018 to a smaller and lighter replacement for the 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro," he added.
He concluded by saying that the MacBook Pro 2018 series "is the most comprehensive upgrade (at least in terms of the Performance) since the introduction of quad-core processors in the MacBook Pro 2011. "
Apple released the new Pros last week. On 15-inch models, users can download up to a 2.9-gigahertz Core i9 Processor, 32 gigabytes of RAM, and a 4 terabyte SSD priced at $ 6,699 – more than some iMac Pro configurations, but the choice of 512-gigabyte standard SSD results in an otherwise System of $ 3,499.
YouTube Moderator Dave Lee claims that the Thermal Desi The 15-inch pro does not provide sufficient cooling for Core i9 configurations that limit maximum speeds. In a video posted on his YouTube channel on Tuesday, Lee showed a premiere of Adobe Premiere Pro at surprisingly low clock speeds. Tests carried out put the average clock frequency at about 2.2 gigahertz, well below the announced 2.9 gigahertz.
Lee's findings are questionable in that assumptions are made based on the performance of a single machine with a non-optimized app.
