    Apple has released a 127.07 MB update for all the Mac notebooks introduced in June 2012 -- the new MacBook Air models, as well as the spec-bumped MacBook Pro, and the MacBook Pro 15" with Retina display.

    Apple is nonspecific about the exact issues the update fixes, but mentions graphics performance and compatibility with USB devices:
    The update is available via Apple's support website or the Mac App Store.

    Installing the update also changes the build number of OS X 10.8.2 from 12C60 to 12C3006.

    Ohh, I wonder if this will fix certain issues like heavy throttling of the rMBP. :)

    Mine showed up in the App Store and I updated there :)

    I hope this will fix the rMBP lagging issue on zoomed in websites.

    For a few moments I thought this would be an actual hardware upgrade. :p

    The size of the updates actually matter for the MBA 64GB

    hopefully this fixes the screen tearing in Safari that has made it virtually unusable on my 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display.

    After the update, Safari performs better. Scrolling with verge.com can finally reach more than 35 fps with the iGPU.

    Would you kindly mind posting a video of scrolling on The Verge or whatever graphics heavy website that was previously laggy, for us? I know it's too little a change and trivial to do something like a video, but.. would really appreciate it.

    if a 133 mb update is a big issue for you then you shouldn't be using an ssd

    here's how to reproduce it:

    attach external display
    goto display settings in sys prefs
    set it to more space:
    [​IMG]
    set arrangement: external display directly on top, laptop screen on bottom. MAKE SURE THE WHITE BAR IS IN THE EXTERNAL DISPLAY ON TOP
    [​IMG]

    move a large window around in the retina macbook screen
    see this video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3ZpEIc0EAw&feature=youtu.be

    it's a known issue with OSX
    confirmed and reproduced it at a Genius Bar with their own retina macbooks.

    ----------


    fixed. now you can see it

    I wonder if this patch fixes the problems with games, which makes you having to reset your SMC.

    Resizing Safari windows are smoother.

    Not noticing any gaming performance at the moment. Is there a way to see frames per second on Modern Combat Domination?

    EDIT: Safari window resizing is NOT smoother :(.
