MacRumors notes that scores for the new device are similar to that of the 2011 MacBook Air.
The 1.1GHz entry-level Retina MacBook with an Intel Core M-5Y31 processor was benchmarked twice, giving two single-core scores of 1924 and 2044, and multi-core scores of 4038 and 4475. Comparatively, the 2015 entry-level MacBook Air with a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor has seen scores in the neighborhood of 2881 (single-core) and 5757 (multi-core), so it's a good bit faster than the new MacBook.
Despite similar CPU speeds, the new MacBook should outperform the 2011 MacBook Air based on superior graphics performance and better solid state storage. The notebook goes on sale April 10th starting at $1,299.
