    Hi Guys,

    Yesterday i bought my new Macbook Pro 15. After unsuccsessful searching for Benchmarks especially Gaming Benchmarks i would like du support and help you with some Benchmarks. I will test an post the results of the Games you want to know.

    So far i tested
    Call of Duty: Black Ops
    Half Life 2
    Fallout: New Vegas
    and EVERY Game runs great on this Machine at 1440 x 900 and >Standart Detailsettings. (no changes after first Start).

    i also tested the Crysis 2 beta and it is really impressive!

    The Crysis 2 Multiplayer Demo runs ok @ 1024 x 768 Gamer.

    The Base Model of the 15" isn´t THE Gaming Machine, but no reason to be scared buying it.
    If you want more details, just post :)

    Is there any tool like fraps to show you also Videos or the FPS of the Game?

    My english isn´t that good, but i think you will understand essence of this post :D

    I'm gonna put my money on bootcamp as all those games minus HL2 requires Windows... no way will they run well via parallels or other VMware.

    Posting some FPS on those games would be helpful for those considering this 15in version.

    I'm interested in finding how does it fair in low/medium settings. Could you also please check for the temperatures and if the fans keep kicking in at full tilt frequently. Thanks.
