    I am considering moving from a 2010 Mac Pro to a rMBP. I am a little disappointed with the update and would ideally like to wait for a more significant bump, but might not be able to hold off on the portability.

    I am wondering if anyone can give me a sense of how the top tier rMBP would compare performance-wise with the Pro I am accustomed to. I do a lot of video editing, primarily in premiere, but also starting to use fcp x a little. I also use photoshop cs6 a lot, generally working with files 200MB and under.

    Here are my current specs: 3.33GHz 6-core Xeon, 12GB 1333 MHz DDR3, ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024MB

    Thank you.

    Check benchmarks for both machines on geekbench.

    Higher scores = faster.

    My gut feeling tells me they should be pretty close.

    The two should perform nearly identically. Your xeon processor might be a little faster, but I haven't checked benchmarks. I know the 5870 should perform about the same as the new dedicated graphics on the 15" RMBP. The SSD on the RMBP will be better though.
