The MacBook Air now presented itself in a first benchmark and this shows that the progress is great compared to the old MacBook Air. But that was to be expected. The model also performs better than the MacBook and comes close to the MBP 2018 in the single-core score.
But with the multi-core score, the difference becomes very clear, here you can feel that it does not have four cores. The MacBook Air has an Intel Core i5-8210Y and the model from the benchmark had 16 GB of RAM.
The result is not surprising, because Apple has given the MacBook Air 2018 directly after the event selected media and were allowed to publish the first unboxing. The usual reviews from the “classic” media should then follow next week.
