The new Macbook Pro
The new Macbook Pro is bursting at the seems with power, now featuring state-of-the-art Quad-Core Intel Processors for the 15" version. The 13" Macbook Pro also jumps up to either an i5 or i7 Intel Dual-Core Processor. New Thunderbolt Technology allows you to connect high-performance peripherals and high-resolution displays to a single port - with data transfers rates up to 10Gbps. For graphics-intensive applications, the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models automatically switch to new high-performance AMD Radeon graphics processors. With up to 2x the performance of the previous generation,1 they let you see more frames per second in 3D games, or work on HD video projects with more speed and responsiveness than before.

- Testing conducted by Apple in October 2011 using preproduction 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 17-inch MacBook Pro units and preproduction 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7–based 15-inch MacBook Pro units with AMD Radeon HD 6770M. 2.53GHz Intel Core i5-based 17-inch MacBook Pro systems with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M and 2.66GHz Intel Core i7-based 15-inch MacBook Pro systems with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M were production units. All systems were configured with 4GB of RAM. Tested at native resolutions using Half-Life 2: Episode Two v(4295)(420), Call of Duty 4 v(1.7.1), and Portal 2 v(4710)(620), with 4x anti-aliasing and high graphics quality. Half-Life 2: Episode Two timedemo test file: Storm. Call of Duty 4 timedemo test files: Timedemoambush, Timedemobog, and Timedemopipeline. Portal 2 timedemo test file: Laser stairs. MacBook Pro continuously monitors system thermal and power conditions, and may adjust processor speed as needed to maintain optimal system operation.
