I have the 2011 MBP with the settings I listed above. It also has a 128gb SSD and a matte high res screen. The laptop is great but has a few major problems that are really bothering me. First off, if I run a very large program or a game within minutes the laptop is very hot. Not to mention the fans hit up to 6000 RPM fast and are really, really loud. Sounds like an aircraft is taking off. Significantly louder than any other laptop I have heard. With that being said, after a few minutes of playing my game will start to slow down significantly and stutter lag. I can only play on really low settings even with the 6750 and 2.2ghz MBP. Had I known this prior I would have clearly bought the lower end 15" considering my fathers 2010 MBP performs as well if not better than mine for gaming. There was no need to get the 6750 if I am playing low graphic intensive games on only low settings and still getting a stutter lag. This happens on both SC2 and League of Legends. Certain characters and particles in League of Legends also make my fps drop significantly. I think the card is simply underclocked and performing like 1/2 the card it should. Any ideas?
