PC World takes a look at the performance of the new MacBook Pros
compared to models from the middle of 2007. In addition to benchmarking software, they run comparisons on the Crysis
demo and the World in Conflict
demo. The results show improvement by a significant margin. Additional benchmarks
are available at MacWorld.
"Crysis shows a similar performance bump, though viewed practically, those numbers might look a little depressing. Crysis arrived in November 2007, but I'm fairly certain I won't be comfortably running it on a MacBook Pro until somewhere north of 2010. Drop the settings to 'medium,' however, and I can vouch that the average frame rate on the November MacBook Pro rested comfortably in the very playable middle 20s."
