    Hey guys. I went to the Apple store to get my iphone screen repaired today and while waiting, I was playing with a 15" macbook. It was the new baseline model with force touch and all the fancy schmancy upgrades. Soooooooo I took the liberty of grabbing some benchmarks real quick.

    Below are pics of the NovaBench benchmarks and 32-bit Geekbench 3 Benchmarks (no 64-bit, sorry). I'm looking into finding benchmarks for last years model for comparison. Sound off on what you think so far:

    Edit: Sorry, boneheaded me got screen caps of Novabench before the test and forgot to take pics afters. Here were the specs I noted:

    1120 overall score
    83 in graphics performance score
    316mbs write speed to the SSD

    Those were the only ones I can for certain remember. I looked at scores for last years baseline and it average 1050, which looks like about an 8% performance increase on NovaBench.

    If anyone else has more detailed benchmarks, feel free to post them, I'm sure there are people who would love to see them.

    32-bit Geekbench scores are always inaccurate and should be dismissed.

    For GPU performance, try using Cinebench R15 instead instead.

    For speed tests to the drive, use Blackmagic disk speed test instead.

    In my experience, Novabench tends to produce less than accurate results. And that's clearly visible in the SSD speed result, because you should be getting over 1200MB/s.

    Yeah I started noticing that the benchmarks sounded off a bit ago. I tried to my best to run what benchmarks I could while I was there. Sorry for the inaccurate results folks.....
