NIckel for Macbook Pro 2018?
Intel announces some impressive comparisons. Thus, the 8th generation outperforms the previous one with a gain of 29% in pure performance, a figure which rises 41% on video games and 59% for the edition of 4K video.
Always engraved in 14nm, the Core i9 will obviously be accompanied by the i7 and i5 models. A refresh of Macs should take place in June, during WWDC 2018, without changing other components.
