One of my friends is thinking of buying a 13 inch macbook pro (2010 model), and he wants to know if the new nvidia video card in it supports 1080p video editing. Hes going to have an larger display hes going to hook it up to so screen size isn't much of a big deal. Thanks for any help in advance.

Not sure specifically about 1080p editing as I don't have a camera that supports it, but the GPU in the current generation MBP is a huge leaps forward over both the 9400M and the 9600M, I figure if it runs games at that resolution without lagging video editing shouldn't be much of an issue, although I would wait a bit on here for a more finite answer. Some comparisons I noticed (gaming) that at least give an idea of the boost in performance.


MBP 2008, 2.4 GHz model (second one up from the bottom of the line)


Assassin's Creed 2 :30-35 fps

Crysis: 15-20 frames (higher if the water is turned down)

WoW: 35-45 fps (on ultra)


MBP late 2010, base model.


Assassin's Creed 2: 50-70 fps

Crysis: 25-45 fps (just slightly below max settings, the water slows it down)

WoW (lowest noticed is about 45 fps in Dal, highest was 148 in many random open areas.)
