New MacBook Pro Compared to Previous Revision
7:33 AM | David Chochla | 3 comments

Macs Only have posted a hands on review of the most recent revision of Apple's MacBook Pro. The update to the Core 2 Duo chip has shown significant performance increases, particularly in 3D gaming.

Particularly pleasing is the greatly improved graphics performance, especially in 3D games of 22-45%. This performance is partly due to the faster CPU, partly due to the ATI Radeon X1600 graphics chip possibly being revved up a bit and partly due to the Core 2 Duo's better OpenGL performance.
Improvements in 3D gaming tests ranged from 22% to 45%. Other good news from the review is that the new laptops also run noticably cooler than the previous revision, though I still wouldn't try to do any serious work or play with one on my lap.
