New MacBook Pro 2020 specs and first benchmarks just leaked

The 32GB of RAM alone is quite interesting, as current models of the MacBook Pro 13-inch can only get up to 16GB. As per a fresh leak, Apple's upcoming macOS machine is a 13-inch MacBook Pro that will be powered by Intel's 10th Gen Ice Lake family of processors.

For one, the device is expected to ditch the problem-prone butterfly keyboard in favor of the scissor-switch Magic Keyboard seen in the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

World Health Organisation statistics on Saturday showed there had been more than 2,300 deaths in China and 11 elsewhere. The man believes this is because he was tested on February 15 but not allowed to leave the ship for five more days.

Of course, we should note that not only are these benchmarks results unconfirmed, as Apple hasn't said anything about a 2020 MacBook Pro model yet (though we imagine one is likely), but also they appear to compare a MacBook Pro running an i5 CPU versus one running an i7 part - so a jump in performance is to be expected anyway. The processor has a base clock speed of 2.3GHz, reaching as high as 4.1GHz in the Turbo Boost mode, and supports multithreading.

There's no evidence of which kind of GPU there is on the new MacBook Pro, but clearly that 29% boost must be coming from an upgraded integrated graphic subsystem. If this information turns out to be true, the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro would be the first Mac to use Intel's 10th generation Core series processors. If we see a similar bump to the 16-inch refresh, that could mean that the device will actually end up being a 14-inch MacBook Pro.
