hello can you post your MBP Penryn 3DMark06 scores, and post your MBP spec
so no one tested ?
I am really curious too! I don't have a macbook pro yet, but those who do, if you have time - please run the benchmark.
Fine I'll do it since no one else will.
So I'm delivering as promised.
Click on the screenshot to see more advanced information.
Lets see some comparison scores between 512MB and 256MB cards.
Could you run it on the native resolution? or the 1400x900?
By the way thanks for taking the time
I have the 2,5 Ghz with 2GB RAM and 7200 RPM HD.
SM2.0 Score: 1623
HDR/SM3.0 Score 1517
CPU Score 2193
I ran it without messing with any options so the resolution was set to 1280x1024, and not the native 1440x900.
My friend has the generation before this one (base model) and got 1000 points less than me :S
Merom vs Penryn?
Merom vs Penryn?
When you run 3DMark you want to run it at the default settings and resolution if you're comparing to other people out there on the net. That way everybody's settings are consistent as a lot of people don't think to change the resolution when they run it. As a side comparison though he could post both scores I guess to see how they differentiate.
Good score! I think the 1000 points difference has to do with the video Ram (128->512) more than the 300mhz difference!
Yes, I agree. For comparison of scores the default resolution is the way to go. I just wanted to see how the 8600GT 512mb holds up for higher resoultions, for example the 1920x1200...
I'll switch to Windows and try it.
Also I don't know, but maybe the OS used might affect this stuff.
I'm running XP.

Have a mbp penryn 2.4 2gb 200gb5400 hdd.
Just ran 3dmark 06 , normal did not change any option, and got 3703 marks.
Windows Xp 32 bit.
Is anybody willing to overclock and see how it improves the score...?
Hmm.. 4414 as to 3703 from 256mb vram to the 512mb vram.. interesting, a difference of 711 in default set @ 1280x1024.
Look what I found with a 256mb vram same exact card with 1280x1024 (default)
Here's the guy who ran the test http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=128829
hmm.. so it seems from 512mb vram to the 256mb vram there is a total of 650-700 difference. I knew I wasnt crazy when I saw a huge difference in driving the 23" acd~
I have the 2.4 Base
I get 4406 with the 169.09 Drivers from laptopvideo2go. clocked the card BACK to STOCK 475/700 Temps are fine
Can we see the screen shots + the temp screen shot?
Also does that mean the 17" can be clocked at even higher??
The 15" mbp 256mb vrams are clocked at 470/635 rather than the 475/700, I highly doubt that 5/65 difference is going to be 700 points in 3dmark06.
BTW, there was mention about the 8600M GT 128mb, regarding a mid 3000'ish score in 3DMark06.
3Dmark06 is meant to utilize GFX cards with 256mb and higher, therefore results for the 128mb version will not be completely respectable.
For more comparable results when comparing a 128mb card to a 256mb or 512mb card, use 3DMark05 to compare results, as it it utilized for 128mb GFX cards.
Just form inserting the battery while plug in ac power got:
SUPERPi 1M : 21.703s
2M : 51.984s
3dMark 2001 se : 29154
3dMark 06 : 4154
Stock boot camp drivers, but overclocked to original nvidia clocks with RivaTuner.
Will download the drivers from laptopvidoe2go and try again.
Ooo all you guys changing your video card speeds closer to the stock are tempting me. Not that I really know what real life difference it would make for the heat risk..
As much as I want to see how far I push the machine, I will always refuse to OC a laptop. Had too many issues in the past (burnt GPUs, failed cooling systems, etc).
I don't blame, especially on a laptop that runs freaking hot to begin with. Maybe with a couple extra fans blowing on it I could make a minor tweak..
I ran 3DMark06 Basic Edition on my 2.5 GHz with 512 VRAM and 2 GB of RAM running on Vista Ultimate. Everything set to default of course like 1280 x 854 and no AA. Got 4200
I just tried this on my penryn 2.6 2gb ram 200gb 7200rpm. Im running it on winxp prof 32bit. I got an overall 3dmark score of 4936.
HDR SM3 1872,
Im surprised how high it is. Pretty awesome for a laptop. This thing surprises me over and over.
Wow!!! and that's without the 4gb RAM. I find it hard to believe you got over 700 pts than me all because of a 0.1 GHz difference. What gfx drivers are you using? And what resolution did you benchmarked it on?
