MacBook Pro 2020 could get major boost with Intel 10th-generation processors

And according to a new leak on Friday, that device could see significant gains in both processor and GPU speeds.

Apple is rumored to be working on a refreshed version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro following the launch of the new 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ in October, and the new 13-inch machines could adopt Intel's 10th-generation Ice Lake chips.

The upcoming 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh for 2020 was reportedly spotted on a benchmarking platform packing the 10th Gen Intel Core i7-1068NG7 Ice Lake processor.

Even more impressively, when it comes to graphics, the upcoming MacBook Pro looks like it could achieve a huge 29% performance increase.

While we like the 2019 MacBook Pro 13-inch a lot, the fact that Apple stuck with 8th generation Intel processors was frustrating.

Given that the 16-inch MacBook Pro was launched with massive upgrades, loyal Mac users were asking when the 13-inch MacBook Pro would get the same love. That alone may be enough to sway MacBook fans who have been holding out for a device with a more reliable keyboard.

Two terabytes is also pretty impressive for the smaller sibling in the MacBook Pro family.

Rumors suggest Apple will release an updated 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ in the first half of 2020, perhaps at its March event, though WWDC is also a possibility.
