    Massive difference in performance, thank god they are finally optimising the OS for this chip;) Both benchmarks were undertaken under the same configuration with no apps running in the background.

    This is now the machine that I wanted and I think Apple envisaged. Shame that it wasn't released as a fully tested product and we had a Beta product for a few months.

    Those before and after scores are within margin of error. Geekbench has always given scores with up to 5% +/- margins. Those scores and that app don’t reflect real world usage though. In real terms it makes no difference.

    I will take a 1k boost, in my personal experience I have never had 1k fluctuations between Geekbench tests. Very happy with this beast of a machine and how Apple are optimising as Mojave matures;)

    LOL, your single score point actually dropped.

    What is it good for, when so many apps run on a single thread? Which means for day to day usage, you won't even notice anything.

    As person above said, maybe this is just a false reading.

    i9 is a beast, there is no question about that.

    It is these scores that are questionable.

    Very true,

    Im more interested in the multicore score though as most of the tasks I use the MacBook for actually utilise all of the 12 cores;)

    That 1K is margin of error, just noise, for for that level of processor.

    My 5 ghz desktop 8700k has multi core results +/- 2K.

    Benchmarks should always be seen as ballpark figures not real world.
