More Benchmarks From The 2016 MacBook Pro (Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C)

A few days ago I wrote about how Apple's 2016 MacBook Pro and Linux Don't Mix, but prior to returning it to the sponsor, I did run a few more benchmarks under macOS beyond what was found in the original article.

For those curious for more benchmarks of the 2016 MacBook Pro with Core i7 6700HQ Skylake CPU, 16GB of RAM, 250GB Apple NVMe SSD, and HD 530 Graphics + AMD Radeon Pro 450 graphics, I have some more benchmarks from the macOS 10.12.1 installation. Due to the problems cited in the article, I didn't run any more Linux benchmarks from this Touchbar-enabled laptop beyond what was shared in that original article.

I did these tests out of my own curiosity and after all the Phoronix Test Suite remains fully-supported on macOS so might as well carry out some more trivial, fully-automated, reproducible benchmarks from this Apple MacBook Pro 2016 (MacBookPro13,3 / Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C).

Those interested in these extra, standalone benchmarks can visit this result file. To compare your own Linux/Mac system's performance to the results in this article, simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1612028-TA-MACOS782896.
