But there's a catch
Leaked benchmarks hint at a big performance boost for the MacBook Pro from the latest batch of Intel CPUs.
Just when its postponed die-size shrink made consumers start worrying that Intel was slipping, leaked benchmarks for Intel's upcoming 10th-generation i7 show it outperforming AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X.
Intel CEO Bob Swan revealed this week at Brainstorm Tech 2019 that Intel will not begin producing chips with 7nm fabrication until 2021. This news comes only two months after Intel's Computex 2019 keynote unveiled 10nm chips for the first time.
A leaked benchmark shows Intel's upcoming 10th-generation Ice Lake mobile chip outperforms AMD's Ryzen 5 3500U. These test metrics follow less than a month after Intel and AMD traded dueling keynotes touting their next lines of CPUs.
