Barefeats Shootout: MacBook Pros Compared
3:18 PM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Barefeats has released a new performance comparison test, this time examining the differences between the 2.53GHz MacBook Pro and 2.8GHz model. The test compares the speed of the two machines using a variety of games including Enemy Territory Quake Wars, Halo UB, and Prey.
The 2.8GHz cores run 11% faster than the 2.53GHz cores. In a graphics intensive benchmark with high resolution and high quality effects, the difference should be less than 11% since the GPUs are clocked the same and cranking at 95%. That's what we see above where the advantage varies from 1% to 9% for the 9600M GT mode. Head over to the link below to read all the results.
