iMac Pro benchmark

Mac Rumors reported in its post that even though the upcoming device has all the best features, it will not be released until December this year. Still, when it comes to its benchmark, the most interesting part is that it comes with custom Intel processors. For example, the ten Core Xeon W-2150 has the suffix B on the edge, which means that the company would need several of upgrades for iMac Pro to handle Xeon’s heat.

Apple’s eight-core iMac has an average score of 23,536 for the multi-core test. When it comes to the ten-core, however, the device manages to set an impressive score of 35,917 points which is faster than the Mac Pro that has12 cores Intel Xeon processor.

Furthermore, the result is based only on ten cores computer, and fans can expect a better and faster device as developers might create 18-core in the future.

The bad part of it is that the production of the smartphone lineup has been cut in half due to the poor demand from consumers. However, the good part of it is that fans are waiting for the arrival of iPhone X, even though it will cost them more than the iPhone 8 flagship.
