    No two ways about this: the new MacBook Pro is the fastest laptop we've ever tested, hands-down.



    We were sent the stock $2,199 15-inch MacBook Pro, and its 2.2GHz quad-core Core i7-2720QM, 4GB of RAM, and AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics with 1GB of dedicated GDDR5 RAM turned in numbers exceeding any Mac we've ever had in the labs. In fact, the raw CPU score is so high you'd have to step to a Mac Pro and Xeon processors to get anything faster, as far as we can tell.

    .. this MacBook Pro represents the best blend of power, portability, and battery life we've come across to date.
    I had the opportunity to see an SSD-equipped version of the new 15" MBP in action this evening, and it booted to the login screen from a cold start in what seemed to be less than five seconds -- so fast I almost didn't see it happen.

    The proud owner of the new laptop fired up Xcode and went on to compile a 35MB commercial Mac application in about 67 seconds, when the previous MBP crunched through the same job in about four and a half minutes. Not too shabby.

    MacBook Pro Benchmarks Show Huge Performance*Gains
    By Darrell Etherington Feb. 25, 2011, 7:59am PT No Comments

    Apple unveiled new MacBook Pros Thursday, and the notebooks came equipped with Intel?s next-generation Sandy Bridge processors. Primate Labs gathered results from its Geekbench hardware performance measurement tool to come up with some solid numbers showing the difference between the new MacBooks and their*predecessors.

    Geekbench 2, the latest version of Primate?s testing software, only measures processor and memory performance, and doesn?t take into account video card performance. Results are drawn from the Geekbench user community, and higher scores are better. Partial results are shown below; click on the image to see the full results.



    As you can see in the full results, the new MacBook Pros outperform the previous models by a wide margin, which is to be expected when jumping from a dual- to a quad-core configuration. Note that even the 13-inch MacBook Pro outperforms the previous 15- and 17-inch Pro powerhouses released in early 2010.

    The new notebooks even outperform some current Mac Pros, according to Primate?s general Mac benchmarks: definitely an impressive display of raw muscle from a portable computer.

    The performance of the new MacBook Pros is amazing. The slowest MacBook Pro performs on par with the fastest previous-generation MacBook Pro, and the fastest MacBook Pro is 80% faster than the fastest previous-generation MacBook Pro.

    In fact, if you look at our Mac Benchmark charts, you'll see that the fastest MacBook Pro is faster than a lot of Mac Pros (including the current generation of Mac Pros). The new MacBook Pros truly are portable workstations.

    I have to admit that looks like one sweet system. Of course it almost requires a second mortgage to pay for it .. lol.
