    Sorry if this has been posted. I did search first but I haven't seen many results from the 13" with 320m GPU. Any 13ers want to chime in with their framerates?

    Thanks

    I found this on the WOW forums. Looks like a 1.5-2x increase in frame rate:

    I just upgraded my macbook pro from last years 13" to this years. I would say the 320m gives a very noticeable difference. I now have all settings turned to good. With shadows, lighting, etc. all turned on. It's running great. I get about 30FPS in Dal and about 60FPS anywhere else. I was getting about 19FPS in Dal on average before with huge dips down to like 5FPS. I actually had everything turned way down and had to cap my FPS at 30 with the old macbook. Now I log in and I'm ready to play! I was actually worried I wouldn't really be able to tell the difference for the upgrade but so far I am really impressed."

    Thanks for the info.

    Just one second hand report? C'mon guys...I know you have run some games on your new 13". I am interested if the 320m is going to be good enough for now.

    I'm really wondering about Diablo III and Starcraft II. I could care less about graphical quality, I just want to play with a smooth framerate. I have Alienwares at my office that will let me see the visuals just fine.

    The 9400M ran it rather well, so I don't think you'll have any issues.

    I'd be interested to know how The Witcher runs as well. But if people have had success playing Dragon Age, I don't see any reason The Witcher wouldn't run on a 320M on at least low-med settings.

    Am I wrong to think that 38.9fps for COD4 is pretty decent? They didn't describe the settings that it was on to achieve that though.

    Well, the new 320M was a nice addition, but still far from "pretty decent".

    If you are not expecting to play Starcraft2,Diablo3 or Valve games on you mac, go for the 13".

    But when I spend more than $1k in a laptop I expect to stay with it for at least more 2-3 years. I just cannot imagine the C2D being competitive in 3 years from now.

    Starcraft 2 is running pretty fast with 320M (13" mbp) with medium details, confirmed by many users.

    I played an hour of Modern Warfare 2 on the 13" 320M today, runs fine at 1024x768 with some details turned down / off.
