As said in the MacRumors forums, results from two benchmark results have appeared in the database of Geekbench in the past few days which are starting conversations everywhere about the upgrades that may be imminent to the iMac and MacBook Pro models.
The very first interesting entry is the MacBookPro9, which is currently corrosponding to a MacBook Pro model that has an unknown size which comes as a successor to the current MacBookPro,x line. These results can actually be faked, as the result that is in question is the consistency with what is already known or is assumed about the forthcoming notebook models from Apple.
The newer MacBook Pro is being listed as coming with an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3820QM quad-CPU which runs at 2.7Ghz. This specific CPU has been viewed so far as the regular successor to the offerings that Apple currently has in the higher-end 15″ and also 17″ MacBook Pro models. And since the i7-3820 is a 45-watt cpu, it’s very unlikely that Apple will be using it in newer 13-inch MacBook Pro notebook model.
This system that is unreleased so far comes with a benchmark of 12,262 which is being compared in the scores in a range of 10,500 going for the most current MacBook Pro CPU which is the Core i7-2860QM.
The motherboard identifier that comes with the newest entry corresponds to the one of the numerous unreleased Mac configurations that were being identified when OS X Mountain Lion was first released as a developers preview in February. Additionally, the results from Geekbench shows a test machine that is running OS X Mountain Lion with build 10A211, and this would be much newer than the 12A193i build which was seeded to developers on May 2nd of this current year.
On the side of the iMac, is the iMac13,2 entry which is appearing to be corresponding with a newer 27
iMac model. The quad-core CPU runs at 3.4Ghz, which is actually corresponding to a very high and also high-end option in a much newer model. This configurated system comes with a benchmark of 12,183 with just only slightly of a higher than a regular score which is in the range of 11,500 for the most current iMac models that use the highest end Core i7-2600 CPU’s.
And just alot like the MacBookPro9,1 the iMac13,1 is coming with a motherboard “identifier” that was normally first viewed in the very first OS X Mountain Lion developers preview way back in February. This system had been using benchmarks that are listed as running build 10A2040 for Mac OS X Lion, and also while a four-digit suffix on the build number is actually somewhat unnatural for OS X itself, with patters like this have been seen in special kinds of builds in the past, previously.
Benchmarks as premature as these have come up in the database of Geekbench previously to the newer hardware releases from Apple in the past already. Ironically, it’s possible that these kinds of results are representing a machine that is genuine for a release in the upcoming future from today.
