MPG tested a fully-loaded Apple 2018 MacBook Pro 15-inch 2.9 GHz 32GB 2TB Radeon Pro 560X. The only better model is the same configuration with a 4TB SSD.

Nothing but praise here—the 6-core 2.9 GHz 2018 MacBook Pro matches the 4-core 4.2 GHz 2017 iMac 5K and trounces the 2015 MacBook Pro (and thus by implication the 2016 MacBook Pro and 2017 MacBook Pro).
With 6 cores in the 2018 MacBook Pro, it’s clear that the cores must drop in clock speed by being all in use, and so 6 cores on the 2018 MacBook Pro are equate to about 4 cores on the 4.2 GHz 2017 iMac 5K (when all cores are utilized).
