The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip appears to be faster than the entry-level Mac Pro in benchmarks, even though it costs about $5,000 less.

13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac Pro
In a clear Geekbench 5 result revealed on Wednesday, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro achieved a multi-core score of 8,928, while the standard configuration Mac Pro with 8-core Intel Xeon W processor has an average multi-core score of 8,027. On Geekbench 5. These scores show that the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, which starts at $1,299, has 11% faster multi-core performance than the $5,999 base model Mac Pro.

The high-end Mac Pro configuration may still outperform the M2 chip like the 12-core model, but at a cost of $6,999 or more.

Given that the Mac Pro has other benefits such as expandability, configurable GPU options, larger built-in SSD storage capacity options, and much larger RAM options, it’s certainly not an apples-to-apples comparison, but a benchmark. The points are there, though, a testament to the impressive performance of Apple’s silicon chips in more affordable Macs.

a sample of Geekbench 5 Multi-Core Average Score For multiple Macs:

  • Mac Studio with M1 Ultra: 23,366
  • 28-core Intel Xeon W: 20,029 . Mac Pro with
  • 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M1 Max: 12,162 to 12,219
  • Mac Pro 12-Core Intel Xeon W: 11,919 . with
  • 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2: 8928 (based on single result)
  • Mac Pro 8-Core Intel Xeon W: 8027 . with
  • With 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air M1: 7395 to 7420

The high-end Mac Pro and Mac Mini are the only Intel-based Macs left in Apple’s lineup. During its March event, Apple teased the arrival of a new Mac Pro powered by Apple silicon, an announcement widely expected later this year.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro will be available to order worldwide starting this Friday, with customer delivery and in-store availability beginning June 24. Apple will also release a redesigned MacBook Air with the M2 chip in July that should outperform the base as well. Mac Pro model for a starting price of $1,199.
