Barefeats benchmarks new Apple PowerBooks

They have seen Apple's PowerBooks and they are good.

According to benchmarks from barefeats, the new PowerBooks are beating the old ones in performance, despite the removal of the Level 3 cache.

I won't go into everything, but the new video chip (ATI Radeon 9600) makes a huge difference in the graphics benchmarks, even on the otherwise-studly old 17". For processor-intensive functions, the new machines reap the performance increases you would expect from the megahertz differences in the processors.

No benchmarks were done of the new 12".
