MacBook Pro 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro with Octa-core processor

Apple just unveiled the 2021 MacBook Pro models in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes. Moreover, there are several variants that are powered by Apple M1 Pro or Apple M1 Max processors.

There are some variables in the number of cores each CPU offers as well as the supported specifications.

Today, the first Geekbench 5 result for the base model of the 14-inch MacBook Pro with an Apple M1 Pro octa-core chip has appeared.

According for results As expected, the Octa-Core CPU is 20 percent slower than the 10-core model in terms of multi-core performance. The Deca Core variant has eight performance cores + two efficiency cores, while the octa-core model has six performance cores + two efficiency cores. (As the word “octa” means 8 in Latin and the word “deca” means 10).

As we can see, the amount of efficiency cores is the same between the two variables. So, the difference comes with performance cores. With a higher number of performance cores, the Deca Core variant will always perform better than the variant with only eight cores.

The test result lists a 14-inch eight-core MacBook Pro with a multi-core score of 9,948, which is about 20 percent lower than the multi-core average of about 12,700 for 14-inch MacBook Pro models equipped with a Deca-Core Apple M1 Pro chip or Apple M1 Max.
