I also own XPLANE 10 and a few others like counter-strike and starcraft 2 will have to see how they run but im expecting good frame rates, I was going to say xplane 10 is not a game but after going through my flight training for real, flight simulators seem like a game now lol... anyway I got the 27" with the i7,1TB fusion and GTX 680MX so I was hoping the hardware can handle games decently, I mean we all know that it won't perform like a desktop GTX 680 but all i want is to able to play the games with good quality, I know i wont be able to turn it up to ultra settings but if the game runs at 60fps with good quality I will be happy... I'm coming from a 3 year old gaming laptop which has a Geforce 9800M GTS so this is a big upgrade for me

I have the 2011 27", 3.4Ghz, 1GB VRAM 6970M, 12GB RAM iMac. Gaming's been practically flawless on it, though I've not tested some of these more demanding games. I'm not a particularly avid gamer. But something like this Witcher 2, how would that run on my 1 GB 6970M?

I still haven't played the first Black Ops, that might be my first game on the 680mx.

try enabling UberSampling in the witcher 2 and watch the that video card crawl.
i got two water cooled desktop gtx 680 superclocked in sli with current driver and it couldn't even hold a constant 60 fps most of the time. but on quad sli it will hold amazingly well.
so yeah, UberSampling will definitely load up that video card big time.

This may have been true in the past, but it's becoming FUD now. The 650M in the rMBP is actually overclocked.
