    I've read the Barefeats comparison of the two 15" MBP models, and it definitely shows that the difference is small, but by testing them in 3D games, it's impossible (or at least really difficult) to determine how much of the difference is attributable to the CPU and how much to the extra video RAM...

    Has anyone performed a comparison of these two machines on CPU performance alone? The extra video RAM will get some extra FPS in games (as Barefeats have shown) but I'm keen to see how they stack up in raw CPU performance alone... For the non-gamers out there, $600 (AUD) for a potentially miniscule CPU boost is a bit much really...

    For a non-gamer, there is no point. 200 Mhz won't make a difference, just if you need the VRAM. Are you asking if someone has a 2.2 and a 2.4 to test?

    I would be more interested in performance difference between the new 2.2GHz model and the old 2.33GHz model...

    I'd give BareFeats a little more time. I'm sure shaving seconds matters.

    The difference in CPU performance is 1/11th. Isn't that farily obvious?

    I'm not, but probably very close to none.
