    just looked at geekbench and saw this
    http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/242194

    it says macbook pro 11,1 quadcore, with Q720 processor.

    im not really into what all this stuff means, but did i just stumble accross something big?


    thanks to the guy below, for pointing out its clarksfield, title changed to reflect this ;)

    You pretty much did. That's still i7 (Clarksfield) but it's not currently used in MBPs. Could be just a prototype from Apple to test Clarksfield in MBPs, but who knows?

    Running in 32bit mode though, score would go up in 64bit mode.

    That's true :cool:

    After Sandy Bridge, it's only couple of months for mobile ATI 6xxx series and OS X 10.7 and only a year till Ivy Bridge and less than two years for Haswell and DDR4 is coming in 2012, SSDs are getting bigger, new GPUs from nVidia... :D

    thought people would be a little more interested in this, especially with the 11,1 code. maybe the change to double figures is meaning a big update next time round, possibly 'to the next level' :eek:

    It's a hackintosh. Look at the BIOS (really the EFI) date. MBP51.88Z.00C1.B03.0802271651. February 27, 2008. They just took the smbios.plist file of a 5th gen MBP and modified it.

    And it still scores lower than the i5 540 @ 2.53GHz. So much for quad-core.

    4.7k score in 32 bit, that's par with the i5@2.40Ghz

    Calm down. Its not 8 cores. Geekbench recognizes hyper threading as cores sometimes. Its 4 cores, 8 threads. Notice how the Core i5/i7 MBPs appear as 4 cores?

    And again, its a hackintosh.
