In Geekbench 4.0.1, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar scored 3927 in the single-core 64-bit CPU test, which is 5.3 percent faster than the previous generation’s score, and 4.2 percent faster than the just-released 13-inch 2GHz MacBook Pro with function keys. The 15-inch MacBook Pro scored 4216, which is just 1.5 percent better than 2015’s 15-inch MacBook Pro with 2.5GHz quad-core Core i7 with 16GB of RAM and a discrete AMD Radeon R9 M370X.

In the multicore CPU test, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar bested last year’s 13-inch Pro by 7.9 percent, and this year’s function key model by 3.8 percent. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar was was actually edged out by last year’s version in this test.

In Geekbench’s OpenCL test, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar scored 30826, using the Intel Iris Graphics 550—that’s 59 percent better than the last generation. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys has Intel Graphics 540, and so this Touch Bar model scored 8.6 percent better.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar scored 42827 in Geekbench’s OpenCL test when using the AMD Radeon Pro 450 graphics, which is 38.7 percent better than the last gen. This model has 2GB of dedicated graphics memory, but you can upgrade to a Radeon Pro 460 with 4GB of memory for $200. The 15-inch MacBook Pro also contains an Intel HD Graphics 530 chip that can be used to extend battery life during less-intensive tasks.

Using Cinebench’s OpenGL benchmark to further test the graphics, the 13-inch MacBook Pro achieved 36.8 frames per second, which is 27.5 percent faster than 2015’s entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, and 9.4 percent faster than this year’s 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys. The 15-inch MacBook Pro scored a whopping 70.4 frames per second, which is 13.7 percent faster than the last generation.

Did anyone else realize the 2.8 GHz 2015 MBP 15 (i7-4980HQ) is faster than the fastest 2016 MBP 16 (i7-6920HQ)? See here:

https://browser.primatelabs.com/v4/cpu/compare/990489?baseline=1046592

A 2015 MBP 15 2.8GHz 16GB 1TB is $564 cheaper then the 2016 MBP 15 2.9GHz 16GB 1TB. There is a 15 day return policy btw.

Also, not sure whether there actually are any 2.9GHz 15" 2016 MBPs out there yet, there's a good possibility that these are fake. Lots of fake benchmarks on GB before the actual machines are out.

Imagine what macOS could do if Apple didn't stick with OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.2. They are far behind the APIs and driver performance available on Windows and Linux.

I just got my 2.9 15" today, typing on it right now. So they are definitely making their way out to people.

I just downloaded and installed it. Then restarted and ran it once - 4657 single, 13902 multi.

Here is the link -

yes with the 460. I haven't exercised that yet much though.

Yes that's about right for the score. The average out of 30 GeekBench MacBookPro13,3 i7-6920HQ scores is:
Single Core: 4239.6, Standard Deviation: 254.2
Multi Core: 13357.3, Standard Deviation: 573.7

Your multi core score is within 1 standard deviation from the average.

Anyone who's got the new base 15" MBP could run a geek bench benchmark test too? I'm looking to see the performance of the base 2.6GHz. The ones on geekbench cannot be trusted yet hahaha.

So there's really stagnation with cpu development. What if they can't break the 14nm barrier?

That's all folks? :D

Off topic but how can we search results on GeekBench?

Searching for MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2016) returns 0 result.
