Two new Macs listed in the Geekbench database, appear to be unreleased upgrades of Apple’s MacBook Pro and iMac models.

MacBookPro9,1, a new MacBook Pro, is listed with Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3820QM quad-core processor running at 2.7 GHz. The new system has a benchmark score of 12,252, compared to scores around 10,500 for the current MacBook Pro processor, the Core i7-2860QM.

iMac13,2, a new iMac, was the second Mac listed which appears to be a new 27-inch iMac. It’s listed as running an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770 quad-core processor running at 3.4 GHz. The new system has a benchmark score of 12,183, only slightly higher than the 11,500 for the current iMac models using the Core i7-2600 processor.

Both running Mac OS X 10.8, they also seem to carry a motherboard identifier that dates back to OS X Mountain Lion developer preview from February, as spotted by a member on the MacRumours forum.

Similar benchmarks have appeared in the Geekbench database before,  so we may see new MacBook Pro and iMac models launched soon.
