    What non-gaming scenarios would be improved in the 15 inch retina MacBook Pro when Apple upgrades the 750 graphics card to the 850?

    GVA, KUL, MEL (current), ZQN
    CUDA-accelerated software.

    And battery life. Maxwell (800M series) use far less power than the Kepler (700M series) GPUs.

    Thank you. From Google, examples of "CUDA-accelerated software":

    - Photoshop
    - Autocad
    - Badaboom
    - any other apps in common use?

    Other non-gaming use cases?

    I haven't had to do speedy Photoshop ever... and even my "older" MBP's can do Photoshop pretty well.
