Benchmark test results by The Hypervisor indicate the new MacBook Pro, launched yesterday, is over 40% faster than the previous comparable model.
We tested the new entry-level MacBok Pro fitted with a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and compared the results with the previous entry-level MacBook Pro, which was fitted with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.
Both laptops come with a 13inch screen and 4GB of RAM, but the older model has a 250GB hard disk while this year’s model has a 320GB hard disk.
We also ran the same tests on the new 13inch MacBook Pro fitted with a 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 processor.
|Time (ms)||Relative difference|
|MacBook Pro 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo||316||1.00|
|MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Intel Core i5||222||1.42|
|MacBook Pro 2.7GHz Intel Core i7||189||1.67|
Our test results show the new MacBook Pro outperforms its older counterpart by 42%. Our tests also show the new 2.7GHz model runs software 67% faster than the old 2.4GHz model.
It certainly interesting to consider the 25% performance boost of the 2.7GHz model comes at a modest 30% price difference.
