    Question: Am I going to see a noticeable difference in speed and graphic performance from my 2015 13" MBP13.3/2.9GHZ dual core i5/8GB/512GB Intel Iris Graphics 6100 VS a New MBP 15" 2.7 QC, i7, 16GB, Radeon 4GB?

    I am using Final Cut, and the current 13" is a dog. Will I see the difference with the 15" as configured above? Will I be blown away?

    Thanks in advance.

    JOHN

    Yes! A dGPU is just the thing to speed up FCPX.

    Thank you!! The question is now, will 2GB graphics processor be enough or do I custom order a 4GB?

    The 460 processor is a relatively inexpensive upgrade, but it depends on how heavy duty you expect your work to be. If you're going to be regularly editing 4K videos, you might appreciate the extra 25% speed over the 450, and 10% over the 455.

    The 460 (4 GB) will definitely be worth it if you live in Final Cut.

    And you'll see a rather massive leap forward performance-wise.
