In researching the new Macbook Pro models, I wanted to find some benchmark information related to the dual-core processors used in the 13-inch models and the quad-core processors used in the 15-inch models, specifically those listed below, but have found it surprisingly difficult to get any solid information on the specific model numbers used in either.

13-Inch: 3.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
15-Inch: 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz

Most of the information I've found is contradictory and wanted to see if anyone could give me a straight answer on the exact CPU types used in the most current versions.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

All the information about the specific CPUs are openly available on the Wikipedia page about the MacBook Pro. Specifically, the models you talk about are i7-6567U and i7-6700HQ
