    Think it was more of a case with getting the dual integrated GPU and dedicated GPU to show off.

    Also, the whole 8600GT failing fiasco, least, hopefully, with the 9600GT this won't happen.

    no on macbook pro they are not slower.

    think that they are new chips.

    also for a search at wikipedia i found that

    8600M GT is giving 114gflops
    9400M GT is giving 120gflops

    Compare please

    8600 GT

    Core clock: 540mhz
    Shaders clock :1190mhz
    Memory clock (real speed): 700mhz
    Production: 114gflops

    9600GT

    Core clock: 500mhz
    Shaders clock :1250mhz
    Memory clock (real speed): 800mhz
    Production: 120gflops
    Mem. band. :25.6gb/s

    Comments are yours.
