I have an early 2011 13" Macbook pro with the following specs:

2.3GHz Intel Core i5
8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB Graphics

I'm considering purchasing the just released 13-inch: 2.7GHz with Retina display with these specs:

2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz
8GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 memory
256GB PCIe-based flash storage1
Intel Iris Graphics 6100

I would like to know what kind of performance improvement I can expect. Is there benchmark data available comparing these 2 machines? I know its probably time to upgrade but I'm trying to get a feel for what level of performance improvement I could expect. Thanks

You current MBP gets Geekbench scores of around 2250 for single core and 4450 for multi-core operations..

While there aren't any numbers for latest release of the MBP,the model prior at 2.6 Ghz i7 got single core numbers of 2800 and multi-core numbers of 5800..

The newer model should be a little bit better. Going to the SSD alone will improve overall performance of the storage access. The newer-generation CPU and the faster memory will also help.

Now, the REAL question is of course are you going to see the jump from say 2250 to 2800 in single-core operations in your day to day things. Does that yield many seconds of improvement? This is a lot harder to quantify and answer..

Updating to the latest hardware will almost make things run faster, but if you are running a relatively newer machine, that bump is harder to notice.
