Apple Notebooks Face Off In Games
7:56 AM | Anthony Wang | 13 comments

Barefeats has posted 3D gaming and Core Image benchmarks for the new Macbooks and their previous incarnation, Powerbook and iBook. The Apple notebooks were tested on Quake 4, Doom 3, and UT 2004 games.

Overall in three of the four tests, the Macbook Pro was the winner, while the Macbook with integrated graphics lagged behind all Apple laptops including previous generation laptops in all three of its tests.

ANALYSIS AND INSIGHTS
Sorry Apple, but the MacBook 13" is a "slouch" when it comes to 3D gaming and Tiger Core Image graphics. Even the iBook G4/1.42 with 32MB of VRAM beat it running Doom 3 and UT2004 Inferno Flyby. (We didn't test Quake 4 on the iBook since we no longer have one in the lab.)
