“Two new benchmark results appearing in Geekbench’s database within the past few days are sparking discussion about imminent upgrades to Apple’s MacBook Pro and iMac lines,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.
“The first item of interest is a MacBookPro9,1 entry, which would correspond to an unreleased MacBook Pro model of unknown size coming as a successor to the current MacBookPro8,x line,” Slivka reports. “While such results can be faked, the result in question is consistent with what is known or assumed about the forthcoming models. This new MacBook Pro is listed as carrying an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3820QM quad-core processor running at 2.7 GHz.”
Slivka reports, “On the iMac side is a new iMac13,2 entry, which would appear to correspond to a new 27-inch iMac model. The machine is listed as running an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770 quad-core processor running at 3.4 GHz, which would correspond to a relatively high-end option in a new model.”
