During the next few days Bare Feats will be posting a series of articles with benchmark results for the "late 2008" MacBook Pro 2.8 versus other Macs. The first set of benchmarks posted are for 3D gaming.
We now have the 2.8GHz MacBook Pro in the lab which comes with the GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor. In this first session, we tested it using three 3D accelerated games at 1280x800 and 1440x900 (native). We wanted to see how it stacked up against the previous fastest 15" MacBook Pro (2.6GHz Core 2 Duo, GeForce 8600M GT) as well as the fastest iMac (3.06GHz Core 2 Duo, GeForce 8800 GS), and fastest Mac Pro (3.2GHz 8-core Xeon, GeForce 8800 GT).
