    Howdy, I was wondering if anyone has any idea how significant of an improvement will the upcoming 15' late 2016 MBP be over the 15' late 2011 MBP assuming that they both have the best configuration available (I.e. Best CPU, RAM and GPU) for gaming.

    I know it's been 5 years between the 2 models and the difference will be big, but I'm hoping for some detailed answers from some of your more tech savvy people so I can have a clearer picture of exactly how significant it is. Thanks in advance.

    The GPU of 2011 is about 700tflops, the 460 is said to have 1.8tflops (peak). If you use the same resolution, I would guess about 2-2.5 times the frame rate you got now.
