Import & render: rMBP vs 13" mid 2011 Air
Jul 1, 2012

Folks - I've just received my rMBP with the 2.6 GHz processor and 512 GB SSD. The main reason I bought this Mac was to replace my mid 2011 13" Air which was beachballing constantly while importing D800 raw files.

As a very simple test, I compared the time it took to import and render 10 D800 raw files at 1:1. No other actions were done, just import and render. The outgoing Air took 124 secs while the new rMBP finished in 54 secs, a ratio of 2.30. Not bad and I shouldn't be surprised since Geekbench rates the two computers with scores of 11,888 vs 5,269 which is a ratio of 2.26.

BTW, the retina screen is gorgeous. dave
