...would be awesome.
heck yes it would be
Yes, 'twould be awesome. Nvidia has yet to announce the mobile 9600 GPU though, so don't get your hopes too high.
Well, they just released the 8800 mobile, didn't they? Wonder if they'll smack that in along with the Monteniva
Yea good luck with that... maybe they will cut a deal with Fridgidaire for a cooling system for it
I refuse to buy until there is a decent gpu upgrade.
i hope the 9600 mobiles are thin enough to fit the aluminum enclosure.
Well they will have to update it eventually, cant run 8600 forever...hopefully within next update
Apple certainly ran with the X1600 for more than long enough
No kidding. Based on that, they won't be updating the graphics processor with this revision.
What do you consider decent?
The 8600 has been in there a while but the updated card (9600) was just released and it is not even in a mobile version yet.
And an 8600m is an integrated card? This is a ridiculous statement. What are you going to do with the macbook pro? Play Crysis? Far Cry 2? Get a desktop, damn.
Call me when the 9600M GT exists.
The 9300M GT and 9500M GS are just the 8400M GT and 8600M GT.
ATI is getting a lot more interest with its 55nm Mobility HD 3xxx Series.
9600 GT is indeed awesome
but i think you need to wait around 1 year or 2 to get those on MBP man..
how do those compare to the current 8600 gt's?
I believe the 3600 is slightly better than the 8600 (it also includes DX 10.1 support), so I'd say the the 3600 is likely to show up in the next MBP.
The Mobility HD 3600 is just a die shrink of the previous HD 2600 XT. Expect more or less the same small advantage from clock speeds over the 8600M GT (9500M GS) that the older 2600 had but with it being cooler and drawing less power.
ATI cards seem to shine until you toss in anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering.
