WoW 680mx Performance

I would be interested to know what FPS ppl are getting with the new 27" 680mx in WoW 25 person raids and what display settings ppl are using.

Many thanks.

the 650m is a long way behind the 680MX in performance.

The Mac client is buggy on ultra if you add anti aliasing, at least on my machine.
Anyways, ultra with no AA is a walk in the park on a gtx285 at least and the 680MX should be like 50% faster almost.

From what I have seen on 3dMark, the GTX 680MX performs about as good as the desktop GTX 660 (non-Ti). So, like a solid mid-range gaming card.
