    If I am not mistaken, this update actually improves turboboost mode under windows and if so, it means that the anandtech review that mentioned a strange GPU underperformance of the new 13" compared to the one equipped with the 320m may actually be fixed!!!
    Recall that under OSX, the HD 3000 performed better than the 320m but the opposite was true under windows. This update may actually make the new HD3000 gpu perform better overall!

    That may be true... We need benchmarks to prove it though... Care to test and let us know?

    Sure but unfortunately I didn't test 3Dmark06 before the update so I would not be able to gauge any improvements.
