Retina MacBook Pro's Intel Iris Graphics Boosts GPU Performance by 50% or More

Apple has got success in boosting the graphics performance of its new Retina MacBook Pros that were launched on Tuesday. The early benchmark tests done by Macworld reveals that "the internal updates in new pro laptops help to increase performance in nearly every application."

In the Macworld Lab, two models of 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro are tested. One is the basic $1299 model that includes 128GB of flash memory, 2.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM. Other is the $1799 512GB 13-inch model with a 2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. However, $1499 256GB model is not tested. All of these models have new Intel Iris graphics for their Retina display screen and latest OS X 10.9 Mavericks operating system. 

Both of these 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro 2013 models are compared to an early 2013 Ivy Bridge model. This Bridge model contains Intel's older HD 4000 integrated graphics. Its other specs include 2.6GHz dual-core Ivy Bridge processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB of SATA-attached flash storage

Some very interesting and impressive results came out for new Intel's Iris graphics. Its frame rates are 45% to 50% faster than older HD 4000 graphics according to Cinebench r15’s OpenGL tests and the Unigine Valley Benchmark. And the other Unigen’s Heaven benchmark proves it 65% faster than earlier one. Other benchmark test also proves the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros are boosted in performance than earlier Ivy Bridge model.
