13ā€³ 2018 MacBook Pro ā€“ Rigel

I upgraded my 2017 MacBook Pro (Fenix) to a 2018 MacBook Pro last month. The 13 inch, Coffee Lake based computer was a tremendous jump in performance compared to the 2017 model which I sold online for ~$1,000. I give you Rigel, my mobile computing platform.

Rigel ā€“ my 2018 MacBook Pro

Fenix had a Kaby Lake processor (dual core at 2.3 GHz) with 8 GB of 2133 MHz RAM and an Intel Iris Plus 640 integrated graphics processor. On Geekbench 4.2.0, it scored 4394 (single-core), 9390 (multi-core), 27495 (Metal), and 29049 (OpenCL).

Rigel sports a Coffee Lake processor (quad core at 2.3 GHz) with 8 GB of 2133 MHz RAM and an Intel Iris Plus 655 integrated graphics processor. On Geekbench 4.2.0, it scores 4565 (single-core), 16933 (multi-core), 34558 (Metal), and 34604 (OpenCL). Compared to Fenix, Rigel also comes with two more USB C ports (all at full speed), the touchbar interface, the third generation butterfly keyboard, BlueTooth 5.0, True Tone displays, and the Apple T2 chip.

Overall, Iā€™m very happy with the power of this notebook! šŸ™‚
