New MacBook Pro 13-inch spotted with 10th-generation Ice Lake

Feb 21, 2023

It looks like Apple has plans to give the MacBook Pro 13-inch a considerable power boost in 2020. And, it’s about darn time, especially since 8th-generation Intel Core processors are aging at this point, especially on a premium laptop.

A 3DMark Time Spy benchmark, recently leaked by @_rogame on Twitter, shows a new 13-inch MacBook Pro boasting marked performance improvements over 2019’s second highest configuration. If you’re not familiar with this serial leaker, he was responsible for uncovering a Geekbench 4 benchmark of the 16-inch MacBook Pro boasting the Radeon 5500M graphics card before it came out. So, you know this is coming from a reliable source.

The unreleased 13-inch MacBook Pro model is fitted with an Intel Core i7-1068NG7 processor with a 2.3GHz base clock, Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz clocks and a TDP of 28W. Based on an earlier tweet, it also boasts 32GB of memory and 2TB of storage (SSD).

It’s worth noting that the i7-1068NG7 could be a variant of the i7-1068G7, which praises as the best performing mobile chip in the Ice Lake U family.
