“Last week Apple quietly updated their Retina MacBook Pro lineup with faster processors,” John Poole reports for Primate Labs.

“The 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro now comes with a 2.4 GHz, 2.7 GHz, or a 2.8 GHz quad-core processor,” Poole reports. “The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro now comes with a 2.5 GHz, 2.6 GHz, 2.9 GHz, or 3.0 GHz dual-core processor.”

Poole reports, “How do these new Retina MacBook Pro models perform compared to the original models? To find out I’ve collected Geekbench 2 results from the Geekbench Browser for all of the Retina MacBook Pro models… The new processors bring between a 3% to 5% increase in performance to each MacBook Pro model according to the Geekbench 2 scores.”
