Apple has unveiled the new MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt port late February. The attention was on the new Intel Sandy Bridge chipset and of course the new super fast Thunderbolt port. Hardmac reports today that the Wi-Fi capabilities of the new MacBook Pro have also gotten a nice performance upgrade.

When using 802.11n at 5GHz with extended channels they reached 450Mb/s. In their tests with the Time Capsule the clocked in at 22MB/s data transfer rate in the same room.

German magazine c't (Heise) chimed in on this discovery and did their own tests. They achived their best result with an HP Access-Point E-MSM460. The 15-inch MacBook Pro reached 206Mb/s downstream and 208Mb/s upstream. These values are the best the c't magazine lab has ever measured. Looks like Apple PR forgot to highlight a cool feature of the new 2011 MacBook Pro. The new MacBook Pro have the fastest Wireless-N around town.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
