Apple MacBook Pro MC723LL/A
New quad-core Intel Core i7 processors are standard on the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro. And the 13-inch models feature the new dual-core Intel Core i5 processor or the fastest dual-core processor available — the Intel Core i7. All these models use Intel’s recently refined chipsets. So its does all that mean for the new MacBook Pro models?
Bottom line: They perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation,1 breezing through demanding tasks like editing HD video, compiling audio, or rendering a multilayered image file.
And since OS X Lion is designed to take advantage of every processor core, it captures every last bit of performance from the processor. Whether you’re watching a movie, updating your blog, or editing photos, data has to travel from place to place to be processed.
The latest Intel Core architecture puts the processor, cache, memory controller, and graphics engine on a single chip. Since data doesn’t have as far to travel, you get faster performance and greater efficiency. When you need more performance for things like playing 3D games, editing HD video, or even running CAD software, the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models automatically switch to discrete AMD Radeon graphics that let you see more frames per second and experience better responsiveness.
With up to 1GB of dedicated GDDR5 video memory, these processors provide up to 2x faster performance than the previous generation.
