Edit: Thanks to everyone. I will be buying the Retina.
Based on GeekBench alone, so take it for what it's worth to you, the RMBP is about 2x faster than what you have. The RMBP clearly has a better video card which I'm sure After Effects and action games will make good use of.
The new processor has lower clock speed, but it will be SIGNIFICANTLY faster.
1. It is a much faster architecture, Core i7 (Ivy Bridge)
2. It is quad core. 4 cores. Your last CPU only has 2 cores.
CPU power = Architecture * Frequency * # of Cores
So a 2.3 GHz Core 2 Duo would be slower than a 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, but a 2.3 GHz Core i7 (Ivy Bridge) is way faster.
Retina MacBook Pro.
Your comparing a 2.0L Ford Focus to a 1.8L F1 racing car
One has less "mhz" but which do you think is faster.
No offence, but this thread is funny when you think about the people buying MacBook Pros. Expectation != reality.
Especially in the context of this quote from the Engadget review:
