References to New MacBook Pro Models Found in macOS 10.12.4 Beta

references a total of eight next-generation MacBook Pro models with the latest Kaby Lake processors from Intel. First discovered by the Apple-centric blog named Pike’s Universum, the code strings in question point to unused IDs for three motherboard identifiers. Aside from other improvements, the Kaby Lake platform enables lower power consumption and brings support for 32GB RAM.

The following strings have been identified in the Sierra code:
  • Mac-B4831CEBD52A0C4C–Two models with a maximum Turbo Boost of 3400 and 4000 MHz. This one uses the exact same processor power management data as the new MacBookPro13,1 model.
  • Mac-CAD6701F7CEA0921–Three models with a maximum Turbo Boost of 3500, 3700 and 4000 MHz. This one uses the exact same processor power management data as the new MacBookPro13,2 model.
  • Mac-551B86E5744E2388–Three models with a maximum Turbo Boost of 3800, 3900 and 4100 MHz. This one uses the exact same processor power management data as the new MacBookPro13,3 model.
 Going even further, Pike’s Universum was able to cross-reference the Intel lineup of upcoming Kaby Lake processors (the ones likely to be used in future MacBook models) against the motherboard identifiers, and broke down which one might be used in the future MacBook Pro models:
