how would you compare the performance of the 8800gt from desktop to the mbpr 650m?
Ahh the 8800GT. Have one in my old PC. One of the great bang-for-bucks there ever was.
Is there a benchmark program I should run that tests ONLY the graphics card? I could compare them that way for you.
OpenMark is a GPU only test. Don't know how good it is, but it'll still generate some comparable numbers.
don't have a mbpr with me to find out about the rest.
given that the rmbp performs better than the gts 450 (which is a rebrand of the 8800 with better clocks) you should see a performance increase around 10-20%
if you want MUCH beter gaming performance the 7970m is the way to go, more than a 100% performance increase, it should be around 150%
The 650m should be over 50% faster (maybe even more) than the desktop 8000gt.
that sounds good,
