Apple is gearing up to launch the latest Macbook Pro this year. While there have been numerous rumors of Apple shifting to AMD APUs, it seems that is not the case. Recent leaks of 3DMark scores have revealed that the laptops will indeed be equipped with Intel APUs. After the Intel i3-1000NG4 Time Spy benchmark for the Apple Macbook Air leak, we have another one today. The latest leak comes from popular leaker TUM APISAK.
In the leaked benchmark, we can see the i7-1068NG7 getting a respectable score of 958 in Time Spy. When compared to last year’ Apple Macbook Pro i5-8279 SKU we see a performance bump of about 20-30%. That being said, the current Macbook Pro has an i7-8859U model as well. Apart from the i7-1068NG7 processor, the Apple Macbook Pro 13 is speculated to pack 32GB of RAM and 2TB SSD. The Macbook Pro 13 is also slated to feature a scissor keyboard mechanism.
The difference between the i7-1068NG7 and the i7-1068G7 is unknown. While we know that the former is tailor-made for Apple’s Macbook, what value it offers is something that remains to be seen. Initial speculations have suggested that the N version offers better cooling. That being said, until Apple reveals the same, take all of it with a grain of salt.
