    I have a 15" rmbp with the dedicated GPU and I am considering upgrading.

    I am an engineer so I do consider myself a pro user and I need to run a lot of CAD software. the 750m is starting to slow down now. and I cant really render much of anything that is overly complicated. is the 460 that much better than the 750m?

    If this update cycle isn't worth it, I will probably wait till the first update to the MacBook Pros, but the performance gain is justified, I will just go ahead and upgrade now.

    I only game a little. and I run a lot of Solidworks in bootcamp as well as Matlab and some Autocad

    or actually, if anyone has the 2016 MBP with the 460, can you run a unigine heaven benchmark at 1440x900 on medium quality? I did this on the 13" TB version last night an it outperformed my 750m.

    Dang. My 2013 MacBook only got 721 on those settings. That's a fairly good step up I think.

    Does anyone think that the jump between the 2013 and 2016 is worth it?

    I was skeptical. Had a 2015 15". Sold it, figured I'd just use my iPad Pro a while. Ended up getting a base non-tb MBP. Blown away by it.

    So yes - I'd say the upgrade is well worth it.

    For reference: my 2012 15" Macbook Pro Retina 2.6 with GT 650M scores 705 on these settings..
