    Some people are getting their macbooks already and I was wondering if anyone has benchmarked the 9400m yet

    Anandtech.com reviewed the new Nvidia chipset today with some Windows games. They compare it against other IGPs as well

    That seems ridiculously high! I have on file that my dedicated Geforce Go 7800 reached only 2386 on 3dmark 06 in its day on 1400x900 resolution, and that had been a very descent video card that could play whatever I throw at it (Oblivion, FEAR... that was 2006).

    I'll need some additional sources before I can accept this. If its true, then it is indeed awesome.

    I'm surprised at the results, by the way is the 8400M GS integrated or discrete?

    Things start to look interresting indeed. Could anyone from these forums run a 3dMark06 benchmark on their new MB, so we can get some solid proof :D

    My 2.2GHz MacBook with the updated Intel graphics scored 295 in 3DMark06. This is a HUGE step forward.

    My 17" iMac which had a 1.83GHz Core Duo and X1600 scored 1205.

    This new MacBook is looking like a very capable gaming system and is likely therefore going to become my only computer. I think I'll be selling my aluminium iMac to get one of the updated cinema displays for this or just get myself a nice high resolution display from somewhere else.

    Anyone done any real world testing such as Warcraft or Company of Heroes?

    I currently only use my MBP for light gaming such as EVE Online, The Sims 2, and Spore... if I sell it to make a few bucks and buy a 2.4GHz MacBook... I take it all of those games will run fine then?

    This is a comparison of desktop chips (there's NVIDIA 9400, not NVIDIA 9400M which is in MacBoooks).

    Yeah, at maxed-out textures and full resolution, it'd probably run into some problems, especially near big cities. That said, my Dell with Intel 950 GMA and 1.8 ghz Core Duo (old) processor runs Spore fine with very little lag on low settings. I really don't think you'd have a bad experience with the new MB playing that game....

    Still hunting for more 3dmark benchmarks, owners please post yours here if you have them! :)

    Yea. More 3dMark benchs. It would be nice to be able to compare the 2.0 and the 2.4 MB.
