Benchmark results of all the Macs Macworld Lab as tested with Speedmark 8.
What happens if you upgrade an older iMac with an SSD and more RAM? You might be surprised at the performance results. Macworld Lab has a report.
Macworld Lab ran performance benchmarks on two MacBook Air build-to-order (BTO) models, and the results show that while both custom systems were faster than the high-end stock MacBook Airs, the upgrades to the 11-inch gives a bigger performance bang for the buck.
Thanks to upgraded processors and graphics capabilities, along with both Thunderbolt and USB 3 for expansion, it's getting tougher and tougher to say the Air isn't a "full-featured" laptop. And you no longer have to give up a good chunk of performance if you want to go light.
The new Mac Pros released at WWDC 2012 represent a speed bump, plain and simple.
We've seen couple of reports recently about the MacBook Pro with Retina Display's video, one about its ability to run at 2880 by 1800 resolution, the other about connecting external displays. We decided to test both.
Macworld Lab's results for these new systems are in. To see the differences in performance, the Macworld Lab turned once again to its all-around system performance benchmarking suite.
Macworld Lab has gotten a hold of all four updated MacBook Air models. Our tests find that they outperform their predecessors on the strength of new Intel processors and faster integrated graphics.
The current iPad 2 has a new 32nm processor, a change from the 45nm processor used when the iPad 2 was first released. Does the change affect performance?
Macworld Lab received an early production model of the GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter and we ran a few tests using a Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Ultra-Portable drive with three different adapters.
