Hello, I read that a lot of applications look very bad on the new MacBook Pro Retina Display. How about Matlab/Simulink and the toolboxes?
No products are associated with this question.
At MathWorks, we have experimented with the HiDPI settings of OS X. Most MATLAB windows, such as the Editor and Command Window, generally render with full retinal resolution. Icons, toolbar buttons, and other bitmap graphics will have scaled graphics within an otherwise retinal-quality window.
However, MATLAB figure windows and Simulink block diagrams are not retinal-display aware, meaning they will look pixelated (but still quite usable) relative to other MATLAB windows.
MacBook Pro 15" non-Retina, mid-2012 edition, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 4 cores, 8 GB of memory, embedded graphics and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB, "Lion" operating system:
bench() results (seconds):
LU: 0.0816; FFT: 0.1020; ODE: 0.1341; Sparse: 0.1252; 2-D: 0.5743; 3-D: 0.6815
However, the FEX contribution "benchmark" measures notably faster for a few items:
LU: 0.0228; FFT: 0.0757; ODE: 0.1396; Sparse: 0.1422; 2-D: 0.4908; 3-D: 0.5314
So to within measurement differences, the speeds are about the same as for a Windows 7 Enterprise 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, but the speeds are significantly less than on a 3.7 GHz 6-core Intel Xeon on Linux 64 bit (which consistently ranks notably higher than Windows 7 Enterprise running on what seems to be exactly the same hardware as the Linux system.)
