The benchmark results of the 16-inch Macbook Pro powered by M3 Pro have emerged in the Geekbench 6 database, and they have been met with a somewhat unfavorable reception.

It exhibits a comparable speed to the M2 Max and marginally surpasses the velocity of the M2 Pro, thereby presenting a striking disparity from Apple's promotional claim of being "scary fast".

The new M3 chips are expected to meet high expectations based on Apple's claims and the success of the M1 and M2 series. However, the initial benchmark may indicate a more realistic perspective.

The M3 Pro scored 3,035 in single-core and 15,173 in multi-core, while the M2 Pro scored 2,667 and 14,410 in the same tests on a Macbook 16.

The M3 Pro exhibits a 14% increase in single-core performance and a 5% boost in multi-core performance, consecutively.

The M2 Pro, on the other hand, demonstrated a remarkable 38% increase in multi-core performance when compared to its predecessor, the M1 Pro, as evidenced by the official Geekbench 6 scores.

While the M3 Pro is generally considered inadequate and not worth buying due to its lack of scalability, it's crucial to consider other factors before making a final decision.

The M3 Pro's single-core speed is often overlooked, but it boasts a 15% improvement over the M2 Pro and the M2 Pro had already shown a 12% increase over the M1 Pro in Geekbench 6.

Semiconductor industry sees 15% growth, but AMD's Ryzen 7 7840U only shows 6% boost in single-core performance compared to Ryzen 7 6800U with same TDP. Apple's generational improvement far surpasses this.
