Last week, I have acquainted our readers with the first great test results of updated models of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, collected by Primate Labs, but there was no information on the 13-inch Proshka. Fortunately, the output of popular database tools Geekbench 2 supplemented with fresh data.
According to published results, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro are on average 10-15% faster than its predecessors as processors Sandy Bridge, and the current 13-inch MacBook Air, with which they compete directly.
Latest MacBook Pro models offer a good performance over the previous generation of professional notebooks. Both processors Intel Core i5 and Core i7 in the 13 “MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) by an average of 10 percent faster than last year’s equivalents with the same screen sizes. In some cases, this increase is provided by the increased clock frequency, in others – is associated with an improved architecture processors Ivy Bridge.
Also, the latest MacBook Pro have a better performance compared to the new Eyrami. 13 “MacBook Pro c Core i5 processor 10% faster than the 13″ MacBook Air with the same processor, while the 13 “Proshka with Core i7 15% faster and cheaper than 100 13″ MacBook Air with a Core i7 (it is a custom configuration, which can only be ordered online store Apple, since even a top Air equipped with a processor Core i5).
Utility Geekbench gives an idea of the relative popularity of different models of Mac, since having the results of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air (with different diagonals, specifications and, therefore, prices) can form some picture of user preferences between the two lines of notebook computers. For example, in Primate Labs have noted that in their data base MacBook Air with Core i5 occur twice as often than the results of the MacBook Pro with the same processor. It seems that making a decision about buying a budget notebook, users give their preference for slender form factor Ayr.
But for more advanced configurations, acting opposite relationship – in tests at 2 Proshka c Core i7 has only one Air with the same processor. Probably for the buyers of these laptops are still the main criterion is a high performance vehicles apple.
