    I have done some research and have found out that Team fortress does work on the new macbooks and pretty well. Also i found out i little bit about Crysis. I i am just using common sense on most of this here because no one has really tried out crysis on a macbook, but here is my info that should help you out a lot. The pre-october 14 macbook pros could play cyrsis very well, and here is proof. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4jvz7qa-e8 ;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXlejyKD1_Y
    Now these computer both have NVIDIA GeForce 8600M. This is relevent because apple said during the macbook release that the new NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (in the new aluminum macbooks) are 10 to 20% faster than the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M (in the pre-October 14 macbook pros). So, the new macbooks can, in fact, play crysis just as good or even better than the pre-october 14 macbook pros.

    So i hope this answers some of your questions
    cheers

    No, Jobs showed via a chart that the 9400M gives only 55% of the power of an 8600M. It also shares memory with the system, rather than having its own dedicated stuff.

    While the 9400M is only 55% as powerfull as the 8600M GT, the 9600M GT is 10-20% more powerfull than the 8600M GT, so maybe thats what you really meant?

    Even though we've seen some remarkable benchmarks of the new MBP compared to other laptops using the 9600M, people are denying that it runs Hybrid SLI with the 9400M in the MBP. I actually believe it does, under windows. Apple maybe disabled the feature under OS X to preserve battery life,

    this opinion is based on what? Hybrid sli would probably penalzie the performance approx 5% when compared to a the single 9600 for power savings.
