    I just have one question. What is the standard OS X version used on the posted geekbench tests - 32 or 64 bit? http://www.primatelabs.ca/blog/2008/10/


    2.80GHz (OS X 10.5 32 bit) +381 = 11 % Increase
    2.80GHz (Os X 64 bit) +785 = 23 % Increase

    MacBook Pro (Late 2008)
    Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 @ 2.80GHz 3671 / 4075

    MacBook Pro (Late 2008)
    Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 @ 2.53GHz 3290

    MacBook Pro (Early 2008)
    Intel Core 2 Duo T9500 @ 2.60GHz 3375

    MacBook Pro (Late 2008)
    Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 @ 2.40GHz 3129

    There doesn't appear to be any tests on the 2.8GHz on Geekbench at this time.

    And that's why I was wondering where the OP got the numbers for the 2.8 and why the title of the thread is called, "Geekbench Results 2.8GHz Kicks Ass!"

    Those might be his numbers in his post. I have seen at least 2 people independently post their own numbers.

    Mid 2007 -> Late 2008 Macbook Pro: (my upgrade) It is a fairly nice upgrade. The reduction in heat and the better graphics chip (with twice the VRAM) are fairly compelling in my opinion. The easier access to the hard drive and (optional) SSD drive are just extras.

    Early 2008 -> Late 2008 Macbook Pro: I would really have to agree that it isn't compelling enough to upgrade. I most likely wouldn't have upgraded either if I had owned one of the February 2008 models.

    Am I the only one that saw all of that and only could understand that some blue bars were longer and some green bars were longer? That's definitely a *geek*bench.

    Macworld usually has benchmarks that relate to stuff we actually use, like how long it takes to do this in Photoshop or that in Aperture. I'd really love to see a HandBrake encode comparison since that's what my system has the most trouble with.

    The average frames per second Handbrake gets on this system is roughly 41 - 45 with nothing else running. That is about the best type of comparison I can think of when dealing with Handbrake.

    Sorry I posted the geekbench link for the previous macbook pro's because I wanted to know if they were tested using 32 bit or 64 bit. Thi is because if they were tested using the 64 bit the new 2.8GHz shows a signifgicant 24% improvement but if they were tested on the 32 bit OS X version it shows only an 11% improvement over the 2.53 MBP.

    Can anyone comment on this 32 bit / 64 bit testing situation? :confused:

    The Macbook is very similar to the Macbook Pro now. You could call it the Macbook Pro Mini if you liked.
