Just a few days back Apple released it’s new MacBook pro-2019 lineup. The biggest change was the addition of eight-core processors on the 15 inch model of the MacBook Pro. There’s also a newer i9 variant for the MacBook Pro. There are some new details about Apple MacBook Pro 2019 i9 GeekBench scores. The performance jump isn’t anything huge but the multi-core performance boost is pretty significant.
According to the GeekBench official scores uploaded earlier today, the device is equipped with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i9 eight-core processor with a single-core score of 5879 and a multi-core score of 29,184.
The 2018 MacBook Pro high-end six-core model had a Geekbench single-core score of 5,384 and a multi-core score of 22,620. In contrast, the performance of the new eight-core MacBook Pro in terms of single-core performance is not particularly noticeable, close to 10% increase only. The multi-core performance improvement is more significant, the performance is up 29% compared to the previous six-core version, close to 30%!
Eight Core MacBook Pro performance improvements
When Apple promoted the new eight-core MacBook Pro, it said that the device can achieve up to 40% better performance than the previous six-core version in some rendering tasks, and even double the quad-core version.
When Apple promoted the new MacBook Pro on the official website, it listed the performance comparison of the eight-core MacBook Pro in specific applications (based on the quad-core version):
– Adobe Photoshop CC multi-threaded optimization filter processing speed increased by 75%.
– The number of Alchemy plugins for Logic Pro X has increased by a factor of 2.
– Wolfram Mathematica’s CPU benchmark performance is 70% faster.
– Pixelmator Pro machine learning based image repair speed increased by 75%.
– Autodesk Maya’s Arnold rendering speed is increased by a factor of 2.
– Blackmagic Fusion Studio’s scene rendering speed is increased by a factor of 2.
– Final Cut Pro X supports simultaneous processing of 11 4K multi-camera video streams.
– Adobe Premiere Pro CC’s 4K H.264 output speed is increased by 70%.
With the release of the new MacBook Pro 2019 model, I believe that there will be more test scores in the future, and the accuracy of these benchmarks will be higher. Till then we did get a close look at what the eight core top model can offer in terms of performance.
So guys what do you think? The performance is definitely improved but would it be worth the extra premium that you pay when you go and buy a MacBook Pro? For us personally, we would wait one more year or so before upgrading to another MacBook Pro model! What are your thoughts about this? Do let us know in the comments section below!
