Geekbench 3 benchmark numbers for new retina MacBook Pro

MacRumors:

Apple’s newly refreshed Retina MacBook Pros, released this morning, have already begun showing up in Geekbench benchmarks, offering a look at the performance boost of the updated machines compared to their predecessors.

A GeekBench 3 result for the entry-level 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro indicates that the new machine is eight percent faster than the entry-level 2013 Retina MacBook Pro, and only two percent slower than the mid-level Retina MacBook Pro released in 2013.

If you’ve been waiting for a speed bump to buy a new MacBook Pro, these numbers show a nice little speed increase.
