Memory, CPU and Compute Speed Results for 2011 MacBook Pro 2.3Ghz 4-Core

I’ve added three new pages on the performance of the 2011 Apple MacBook Pro 2.3GHz 4-core compared to the 3.33GHz 6-core Mac Pro.

Not a fair fight? This new MacBook Pro is a scrappy competitor. If only it could accept 16GB of memory instead of the measly 8GB currently possible.

The results are striking, the CPU results show clearly that Turbo Boost is highly effective, that the memory access speed is slower, and that in computing tasks, the MacBook pro lags the 3.33GHz 6-core only by about 19% until 5 or more CPU cores come into play.
