    Wow, Dirt 2, X-Plane 10, and Portal 2 results for the 2012 iMac Core i5 2.9GHz with GeForce GT 650M versus 2012 Mac Mini, 2012 Retina Mac Book Pro, and 2010 Mac Pro.

    Disappointing to say the least. The good news for people who want a refurbished 2012 iMac is that there will be quite a lot of returns now.

    The people that game so much they are interested in benchmarks probably already knew the 650M isn't such a great card at the 21.5's resolution already.

    Personally I'm more interested in gaming benchmarks for the 680MX!

    Yes. 680MX is the one

    I have a CTO iMac coming with the 680MX so I'll run those tests at the same settings but also run them at higher rez like 2560x1440 to compare to last year's iMac with the Radeon HD 6870M and to some really fast Mac Pro GPUs like the GTX 580 and 680.

    Wait, people are actually disappointed that the 650M performs about the same as the... 650M? :confused:

    I would be very interested to see how the 2012 27" iMac with the Nvidia 680MX compares to the 2011 iMac 27" with the AMD HD 6970M 2GB GPU. Obviously will be a boost but interested to see what Apple have done to the 680MX.

    It is still an improvment on last year and it can still run most games on High and pretty much any game on some sort of settings, so perfectly fine any casual gamer.
