    Chip used in TB 13": 2.9 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5-6267u

    Chip used in non-TB 13": 2.0 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5-6360u

    They both seem to hit ~7100 score. And both cost the same. $304.

    The only difference is that:
    (1) 15W: more battery life (considering that non-TB has a bigger battery size)
    (2) 15W: may tend to throttle more.

    Interesting. Now it seems that the only real advantages that the TB version have are:
    (1) 2 extra ports
    (2) a touch bar (which may or may not be useful, depending on your usage).

    Graphics-wise, the HD 540 and HD 550 doesn't have much difference either (HD 550 is 5% faster), and both should be as fast as the Iris Pro 5200 on the 15" (2015) model, which is pretty good if you ask me.

    There is a possibility that some manufacturers downclock their CPU.

    Or maybe the machine was not optimally tested (lots of background apps being ran, for example).

    Lots of fake numbers get uploaded into the database. You have to look at the average runs.
