Just how powerful are the Intel GPUs on the new Macbook Pros?

    There's some talk about how they are supposedly as good as last generation's 320M, but it seems like it just isn't so at all:

    Do buyers of the new 13" Macbooks Pros that don't come with a discrete GPU find that their systems are having some trouble keeping up?

    Wow that's kind of a bummer if the Intel can't hold up. And it's not even totally Apple's fault this time too (though similarly sized laptops have managed to pack a dedicated GPU in there).

    The 13" MB/Ps never came with a discrete GPU, only the iBooks had one back in the day. The 13" MB/Ps always used an IGP (Integrated Graphics Processor - GMA950, X3100, 9400M, 320m, Intel 3000 HD Graphics or whatever it is called).
