Every time we’re hearing more and more relating to information regarding the new MacBook Apple released last week. This time it is the benchmark of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. It got a boost of 10% and 15% over previous models that was presented by the company, but more interesting is that the same percentage is improved on the 13-inch MacBook Air also released at the time with which it competes directly.
It is not new for a device to improve from version to version, no less than 10%. Both the model with Core i5 and Core i7 mid-2012 improve in the same way their counterparts that launched in late 2011. Some of the improvements are directly related to processing speed while others are related to the architecture of the processors Ivy Bridge, which is completely different from previous models.
Very interesting is that the new Pro 13″, unlike what happened with previous models, is better than the current Air. The Pro with Core i5 is 10% faster than the Air with Core i5 while the Pro with Core i7 is 15% (to $ 100 cheaper) than the Air with Core i7.
This latter comparison is only relevant because last year, with the latest releases, the Pro was not the fastest computer but actually was the Air (always compared to those with the same processors, logical). It seems that the Pro is now back to stay ahead.
