8:46 AM | Anthony Wang | 2 comments
Barefeats has released benchmarks of the new Macbook Pro models' performance with games. The games tested included Quake 4, Doom 3, Halo, Prey and UT 2004.
The new MacBook Pro with the GeForce 8600M runs 3D accelerated games significantly faster than the previous 2.33GHz model with the Mobility Radeon X1600. For example, Quake 4 ran 60% faster, Prey 55% faster, and Doom 3 ran 38% faster. The "Rosa" even beat the 4-Core Mac Pro desktop with a GeForce 7300 GT in 4 out of 5 of our tests.Please follow the links below to view the benchmarks and read the commentary.
However, the new MacBook Pro remains slower than the 24" iMac C2D with the GeForce 7600 GT and the 4-core Mac Pro with the Radeon X1900 XT. In other words, if you are an avid 3D gamer, you will be pleased with the new Macbook Pro "Rosa." But if you are "hard core" wanting the Mac with the most FPS, the Mac Pro with the Radeon X1900 XT is still "Top Gun."
