A new report has identified that a Retina MacBook Pro is currently being tested by Apple and that it could be released soon. According to MacRumors, some benchmarks for a brand new MacBook Pro coded ’10,2′ have shown up in the Geekbench benchmarking database. The new model, which is as yet unreleased, has a 2.9 GHz Core i7-3520M processor, which co-incidentally is the same processor found in the 13 inch MacBook Pro that does not have a Retina Display.
Ever since the launch of the 15 inch new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, a 13 inch Retina version has been rumored to be in the works, although there has been no evidence as yet that Apple had been working on such a device. While Geekbench results can be faked with Hackintosh systems, the new discovery has a substantial number of consistencies with what could be found in a 13 inch display, that it becomes more convincing.
Geekbench results have in the past been accurate predictors of unreleased Mac systems, but equally, people have attempted to fake them. The new system is reportedly shipping with 8GB memory and performs equally as well as the current 13 inch MacBook Pro without Retina Display. Hopefully, this discovery equates to a 13 inch model that does indeed include Retina Display.
