    I cant explain it, but my brand spankin new 2.3GHz thunderbolt equipped 2011 MBP is noticeably slower then my "older" 2010 2.8GHz MBP.

    Has anyone else noticed anything like this? I've read all the reviews and benchmarks, and this new machine is supposed to be alot faster of course, and wondering what might be causing this behavior. I've replicated alot of data over to this new box (including a difficult bootcamp partition) so i'm not interested in exchanging this thing, but rather see if theres some kind of fix.

    If u migrated that could be the problem.Migrations are a big no no for me,i manually exchange data.

    If your not saturating the cpu, the 2010 is simply faster b/c of clock speed.

    Clock speed =/= CPU speed. The CPU in the 2011 MacBook Pro is significantly faster than the one in the 2010 MacBook Pro.

    are they the same model type or is the 2011 a 13" and the 2010 a 15" or something

    Sandys are probably 30% faster per clock than Arrendales. They turbo higher, and they have 2 extra cores.

    I don't think there's any question as to which is faster in every sense of the word.

    So, according to you, the 2010 dual-core models are "simply faster" than the 2011 quad-core models, which can also turbo-boost to higher clocks than the previous gen. :rolleyes:
