Next-gen MacBook Pro, iMac make benchmark site debut

Ivy Bridge chips, retina screens, USB 3.0 all a-board

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Faster MacBook Pros have surfaced on the Geekbench benchmark collation site promising, if genuine, performance 17 per cent up on its predecessor.

The reference, to a 'MacBook9,1', lists a machine with a four-core Intel Core i7-3820QM Ivy Bridge processor operating at 2.7GHz and running Mac OS X 10.8 (Build 12A211). It has 8GB of 1600MHz DDR 3.

A separate filing, covering an 'iMac13,2', shows a machine running Mac OS X 10.8 (Build 12A2040) on a four-core 3.4GHz Core i7-3770 - we reviewed this desktop chip here - equipped with 4GB of 1600MHz DDR 3.

Meanwhile, the new 15in MacBook Pro will sport the much-rumoured thin casing - out go the optical drive and Ethernet ports to make room, it seems - and in comes USB 3.0 and a "retina" display resolution, 9to5Mac claims, citing someone who claims to have fondled "prototype components and casings".

Firewire is out, too, it's suggested, replaced by a second Thunderbolt connector and a third USB port. ®
