8-Core 2013 Mac Pro Benchmarks Published
It’s not unusual for Geekbench benchmarks for unreleased Macs to appear on the Primate Labs website. However, whereas Apple has announced a 12-core configuration, today we have news of an 8-core 2013 Mac Pro model running an older (unique?) build of OS X Mavericks.
Primate Labs has published Geekbench scores for an 8-core 2013 Mac Pro (AAPLJ90,1), running OS X 10.9 [13A3010] — the current developer seed of Mavericks is 13A584.
• Integer Performance
— Single-core 3377
— Multi-core 28264
• Floating Point Performance

— Multi-core 30009
• Memory Performance

These Geekbench scores easily best numbers posted for most existing Macs, often by significant margins. Yes, some older 12-core models come out on top, but not across-the-board (i.e. single core performance).
So, is this newly revealed 8-core 2013 Mac Pro Apple’s entry-level model and will it sell for the current entry-level $2,499 price point? That would be fairly amazing…
