Can someone with a 512MB GT650M 15" benchmark League of Legends for me?

    In Windows, if you can. I'm looking to spend my tax refund on a laptop for school and light gaming.

    (And don't give me that classic speech. I have a self built desktop with a 3570k and a GTX 780 Hall of Fame :p)

    Anyway, I want a laptop that has a nice cost of ownership. I had an old 2010 13" that I fell in loved with, but had to sell due to financial reasons. I'm looking to pick up another one now for school, video editing, and light gaming (Mostly League of Legends for on the go)

    I might be able to grab the 2.6GHz model of the 2012 15" MBP, but in the case I can't find one in time on CL or eBay, I want to know if 512MB on the 650M won't bottleneck anything on League.

    Some caveats on the test:
    Windows (Due to OSX drivers vs Windows drivers)
    1440x900 resolution
    No shadows

    I'm looking to get a stable 60FPS in team fights, and I'd like to know what I need to drop if the 512MB is a bottleneck in the game.

    If anyone can do this, I would love you so much. :p

    GVA, KUL, MEL (current), ZQN
    The 2.6GHz has a 1GB GT650M card.

    Only the 2.3GHz has 512MB.

    I know, I want to know if the 512MB VRAM makes a difference on League with the 650M, as those are the two models I will be debating between.

    The way vram works, it will only affect the benchmark if you are using such high textures that it fills up 512MB. LoL is a pretty simple game compared to most, so I doubt it uses up 512MB, even on high. If it did, you could just drop the textures setting a bit.

    In OSX you get that sort of performance with that detail levels.

    Yes, I have had MBP with 2.3 GHz, 8 GB RAM, and GT650M with 512 MB.

    Sometimes it drops below, but never droped below playable framerates.

    I know how VRAM works, but every situation is different. And some games that don't look like they would use a lot of VRAM do, and vice versa


    I won't be gaming on OS X, due to the inferior drivers compared to Windows for gaming. I'll be dual booting.
