Benchmark: Apple 2.5GHz Penryn MacBook Pro


Today in the CrunchGear test labs we’re benchmarking the Penryn-based MacBook Pro. And just for fun we’re also benchmarking the Merom-based MacBook and a Mac Pro. For this test we’re using Primate Labs Geekbench 2. The baseline for this test is 1000, which represents a 1.6GHz Power Mac G5. For all intents and purposes we’re only focused on the overall score and the MBP did quite well compared to the Mac Pro. Without a previous gen MBP in the mix the numbers don’t mean as much, but we will be adding a 2.16GHz Core Duo MacBook Pro into the fold later on today so that should give some of you a better indication of what’s going on with the Penryn-based MacBook Pro. For your geeky pleasure we’ve added all numbers for each machine in a ginormous gallery for you to peruse.
