    Different Geekbench versions (3.4.2 vs 4.1.0) and the Touch Bar version is running in 32bit vs non-Touch Bar is running 64 bit. Perfectly explainable ;)

    You've got to take Geekbench with a rather large pinch of salt, and wait for more data points to give a fairer average.

    Other obvious differentiator is that one is using a 32bit version and the other 64bit.

    I knew there was something lol long day, so does that mean the non Touch Bar really scores 10K? That’s what my 2013 iMac scores with twice the cores! What a leap! Also has anyone seen the Geekbench scores for the Touch Bar model?

    It still seems to be lower, here is Geekbench 4 64 bit on the tb model http://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3067855
