According to Bitbag, the initially rumored release of MacBook Pro in March 2016 will not be pushing through, instead the highly anticipated unveiling will happen in June during the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. And the report added that the event will not disappoint the Apple customers as several exciting features will be introduced.
Some of the new features rumored to be part of the new Apple MacBook Pro 2016 is the SkyLake processor, which is expected to be faster than the current Intel processors. Some benchmark results that surfaced in the Web last week were likely to confirm this.
Two benchmark results posted in Geekbench 3 last week were believed to be of a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro. The benchmark results, accordingly, showed that the laptop is running an Intel Core i7-6567U processor clocked at 3.3 GHz. It also showed that the laptop had an integrated Intel Iris Graphics 550 GPU graphics card.
Mac Rumors, however, said in its report that the rumor about the Skylake chip is false. It said that some unusual aspects in the benchmark results suggest that the laptop tested is a Hackintosh model, a PC that runs Apple’s OS X Operating System.
The “unusual aspects” include the 15W4314 build number for OS for OS X 10.11.3 as Build 15W4314, which it calls an “anomaly,” because it doesn’t fit Apple’s naming pattern and custom builds. If it’s really from Apple, it should start with the tech titan’s naming convention that is 15D.
Another is the model identifier SKLCRB1,1, which does not line up with Apple’s other pre-release identifiers. Still an unusual aspect is the Motherboard ID of 50619A408DB004DA, which matches the MacBook Pro 8,1 model used in desktop-class processors, the same as the motherboard used in Apple’s 2011 13-inch MacBook Pro model.
