    Posted by someone admid a big thread, i'm reposting the link, due to the ammount of people posting same question over whether a macbook can run final cut.

    As you can see from the benchmarks, MacBook handles Final Cut very well, so can we stop posting same question about compatability :) :) :) :)

    So the MBP is faster than the PowerMac G5?

    and the Macbook is almost on par with it?

    so you could glue and solder 2 macbooks together for the price of one MBP and have insane render performance? :D

    Interesting, I would like to see this same test with stardardised test files (which we could then download) and with all the same hardware in the same place at the same time (to preclude the new version problems this test had).

    So how much leverage does the ATI chipset really have for pro video users?

    I was under the impression that Motion at least would really be working the card hard. Looks like its time for me to re-think my upgrade strategy. heck, once you factor in the rest of the +'s for the MBP its still hard to beat (at least for me) but this result is really surprising.

    I have a feeling the motion result was a rendering test and not a realtime preview test, which is where the GPU would suffer.

    Ah, that makes sence. Still, I thought all that buzz about core video a while back translated into real implimentation. Unless I'm missing something I really want the GPU rendering my Motion files.


    BTW, is your location a refrence to either Requium for a Dream or Dark City?
