After an earlier report about Best Buy slashing its prices on all Mac models, various speculations were made about Apple’s allegedly upcoming MacBook Pro. Of course, while we are yet to receive any official word, nothing is yet to be confirmed. That said however, now some benchmark figures have been discovered and they appear to be for a device that could be the 2012 MacBook Pro. The spec that was apparently attached to it is an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3820QM quad-core processor which reportedly clocksat 2.7GHz. The benchmark score for the processor was 12,262 as opposed to the score of 10,500 which is the score of the processor packed on the current MacBook.
The figures which were highlighted at the MacRumors forum after being discovered in Geekbench’s database sparked the discussion about upgrades to Apple’s MacBook Pro being just around the corner. The device that was benchmarked, carries the name MacBookPro9,1 and another thing you can probably notice from the information below is that it has 8192MB (8GB) of RAM. Again, since Apple has not yet revealed a standpoint officially on any of these developments, we’ll just have to take it with a pinch of salt. As reported earlier, along with these figures that point toward the 2012 MacBook Pro, benchmark figures for what could be the new 27-inch iMac also surfaced.
