I noticed that on the geekbench 4 benchmarks for mac, a MacBook Pro (13-inch retina Early 2015) out performs my HP Spectre x360 (13 inch 2016). Im curious how geekbench works, because I have an i7-6500U while the MacBook Pro has an i5-5287U, a step down in intel's lineup and down one generation too. Also, the spectre has 16gb or ram while the MacBook only has 8gb.

The scores are as following:
MacBook Pro: 3925/7433
Spectre x360: 3658/7292

Anyone know why the Macbook performs better even with older and less powerful hardware?
