    What's faster / better, the integrated nvidia graphics on an '09 C2D 15" MBP 2.8ghz, 512vram, or the integrated intel graphics on the new i7 15" MBP's?

    Thank you, I searched and didn't find that thread.

    So the new integrated graphics is better, that's great added with gfxCardStatus you can switch without logging out so in that case it's an upgrade.

    Otherwise with the heat generated but running discrete mode always would make it a poor upgrade option over the '09's, (imo).

    New MBPs have auto-switching which means that if more power is needed, it automatically switches to 330M and vice versa. No need to hassle with switching anymore
