The MacBook Air, powered by the new M1 chipset, scored 1,687 on single-core and 7,433 on multi-core.
The new MacBook might use an A14X processor, thus becoming the company’s first Mac to use the Apple Silicon.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted that the new MacBook Pro and Air laptops with Apple-designed silicon chips will launch late in 2020 or early in 2021
Kuo has said that the first models of the Mac to adopt Arm-based chips will be the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and an iMac.
The base model of the new MacBook Pro comes with 8 GB of LPDDR RAM and 256 GB storage.
Apple might launch 4.7-inch iPhone SE 2, new iPad Pro, AirPower charging mat and more in first half of 2020
Apple's rumoured iPhone SE 2 is expected to price at $399 in the US and might launch in March 2020.
The top-end variant can pack 64 GB of RAM and 8 TB of SSD storage for a whopping $6,099.
The screen is expected to be a 16-inch LCD display with a slightly higher, 3072x1920 resolution.
The new scissor design is expected to enhance the typing experience by offering longer key travel and durability.
Apple has given three minor updates in macOS that focus on fixing bugs and improving performance.
In other Mac-related news, it appears that Face ID could be coming to the Mac.
It is expected that the refresh versions of other MacBook models in 2020 will get the scissor keyboard.
The new MacBook Pros replace the older, Touch Bar-less models and students get around Rs 7,000 off.
