Some had suggested that WWDC would herald the arrival of new notebooks, something that ended up not happening, and others had suggested that a new keyboard could be in the works for any new MacBook Pro update.
Benchmarks scores of a MacBook Pro running on Intel's 8th-gen Coffee-Lake CPU has been leaked via Twitter. This particular CPU features 4 cores and 8 threads with a base frequency of 2.7GHz which can boost up to 4.5GHz depending on the workload.
The new MacBook Pro model scores 4448 in single-core test, and 16607 in multi-score testing.
Hopefully, MacBook Pros with refreshed innards will come with other stand-out features as the current design is almost two-years-old.
If the protype tested really is the "MacBookPro15,2" then it will likely be the replacement for the mid-2017 13-inch MacBook Pro, as that one has the device ID "MacBookPro14,2". Note that Geekbench scores can be fabricated relatively easily, so this isn't confirmation of an imminent revamp - but it's certainly fuel on the fire. The i7-8559U was created to be easily downclocked to 20W. But last year's dual-core laptop only does 9500 in the multi-core department.
Whether this benchmark indicates the 2018 13-inch MacBook Pro will have a substantially better processor is not known. Or this could all be a hoax, as it's not impossible to fake Geekbench scores. This chassis was fitted with Intel's Core i7-8750H and 32GB of RAM.
Naturally, as mentioned above, this listing in itself is not definitive proof of Apple's decision to upgrade the MacBook Pro lineup. We know we'd be happy with this machine if it is indeed coming to market.
