The company did not refresh the 13-inch MacBook Pro a year ago, despite refreshing the 15-inch model, which is why Geekbench used the 2017 model for comparative purposes.
If you need a bit more processing power, the 13-inch MacBook Pros have seen a hardware refresh, with the base models featuring quad-core 8th Generation Intel processors instead of the dual-core i5 processors you would have gotten last week.
Apple has discontinued the 12-inch Macbook that it first introduced in March 2015.
That gives the new model single-core and multi-core scores of 4,639 and 16,665, compared with the 4,341 and 9,084 scores given to the 2017 entry-level MacBook Pro.
MacRumors ran some Geekbench benchmarks on the new MacBook over the previous model and saw performance gains of up to 83 percent.

That condition has shackled government spending and, critics say, stifled the country's recovery. The economist and engineer served as deputy minister in a previous government.
Are you impressed with the new MacBook Pro score?
This laptop now gets the 8th-generation quad-core processor making it much more powerful and there's the inclusion of the interactive Touch Bar which changes depending what software you are using. The 15W chip is part of the Coffee Lake family and has a max Turbo Boost frequency of up to 3.9GHz.
So far, one Geekbench result has appeared for the 1.7GHz config, showing a score of 4,835 single-core and 15,515 multi-core.
The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are more or less similar when it comes to specifications.
Keep in mind that these are just benchmarks and real-world performance can differ. The 13-inch MacBook Pro has also undergone a price cut and it is now available at Rs 111,264 for college students.

Apple's storage prices, however, are still astronomical, given that you can buy a name-brand 1 TB SSD on the open market for about $100, but the Apple storage tax is no longer as high as it was.
