    Yeah it's twice as fast as the 750m in most tests, and consume the same amount of power. Quite the upgrade. I hope we see it in the RMBP on monday.

    To be honest, those benchmarks on that site are not valid. According to that site Guild Wars 2 maxed out on 1920 x 1080 gets only 13.9 fps. However the 750m on the Retina Macbook Pro easily gets 30+ fps on maxed settings on 1920 x 1080 in the same area the benchmark was shot. (so 216% performance difference between notebookcheck and the real fps)

    Same also with Battlefied 3 at Ultra settings on 1920 x 1080, I see more than 50% difference in performance what notebookcheck reports and what I see on the same level the benchmark was run.

    I suspect much weaker and / or older machines were used with outdated drivers for benchmarking the 750m.

    Or they could be the benchmarks of the slower DDR3 based version of the 750m. That's why notebookcheck averages are very unreliable.

    For the GDDR5 version of the 750M, refer to the benchmarks for the GT 755M instead (GT 755M is GDDR5 only and performs only about 5% better than the GT 750M GDDR5).

    Is this the Maxwell version based on TSMC's 20nm silicon? That's where the real gains will be made.

    Ha yeh right, this won't be updated on Monday, why update the dGPU if there's no CPU update to go along with it? People need to be patient, the rMBP won't see a major spec bump till Q4 '14.

    Its the 28nm. There may not be 20nm Maxwell until 4Q 2014 or 2015

    They tell you the machine used and the driver version used (including gpu memory type). Left click on the fps figure and the machine details will drop down.

    You won't see a Maxwell part until the Broadwell systems are released. Apple makes the big jumps for CPU and GPUs at the same time. The only thing you're likely to see Monday is a spec bump.
