    I just did a Geekbench 32 bit test on the latest El Capitan Beta. The scores were pretty amazing. I received my macbook 3 weeks ago.

    Macbook 12-inch Early 2013 (Intel Core M-5Y71 @ 1.30 GHz)
    My score 32 bit Single core: 2613
    My score 32 bit Multi core: 5130

    MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina early 2013 (Intel Core i5-3230M @ 2.60 GHz)
    Average 32 bit Single core: 2515
    Average 32 bit Multi core: 5150

    Highest score 32 bit Single core: 2678
    Highest score 32 bit Multi core: 5484

    I know that the processor can only do this for short bursts, for CPU-intensive tasks, macbook pro is better. It is a crazy fast laptop. Unfortunately i couldn't do a 64 bit scores, so i can't say anything about that. I was worried about the speed of this laptop, not anymore.

    I've had mine since the first UK shipments arrived and whilst it's only the base model I've never found it lacking in performance.

    Here are the scores for my 1.2GHz rMB, on the latest El Capitan Beta.

    64-bit Geekbench
    Single-Core Score 2459
    Multi-Core Score 5318

    32-bit Geekbench
    Single-Core Score 2361
    Multi-Core Score 4857

    I ran the 64-bit test first, then the 32-bit test right after it. I may try again, running the 32-bit test first, and see if anything changes. Or at least give the chip a chance to cool down between tests.
