an early 64-bit Geekbench benchmark of the entry-level machine was spotted this afternoon , This gave a big truth that how  new ultra thin MacBook measures up to existing products in Apple’s notebook line.

The 1.1GHz entry-level of Retina MacBook with an Intel Core M-5Y31 processor was benchmarked twice , which gave two single core 1924 and 2044 score. With 4038 and 4475 were the score of multi-core. Now the 2015 entry-level MacBook Air with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor has seen scores in the neighborhood of 2881 (single-core) and 5757 (multi-core), so it’s a good bit faster than the new MacBook.

the Retina MacBook CPU seems to be par with the higher-end 2011 MacBook Air with a 1.8GHz Core i7 processor, but graphics performance on the new MacBook, which Geekbench does not measure, should be far superior to the 2011 machine.


Apple offers two additional processor upgrade options for the Retina MacBook, at 1.2GHz in the higher-end machine and at 1.3GHz as an optional build-to-order upgrade, both of which will see somewhat better performance results than the entry-level 1.1GHz processor.

The original Geekbench result and  Google cache have been deleted , so currently we all dont have any official link to the bench mark
