What will make me decide if i should upgrade from my current macbook pro 2011 (with which i am very happy) to the max retina mbp specs, is the GPU (Graphic card)

i want to show all what the ATI 6750M 1Gb GDDR5 can really do, so that people stop comparing with sites like notebookcheck etc that generally give a very false information of the card possibilities. Also, this is for test purposes to understand if there is a ''real'' gap between the 2011 gpu and the 2012.

Please note that i wish we had some real benchmark for the GT650M (too early i know) and to know if the card is overclockable of course (like the GT330M was)

Anyway, here is the Youtube link (read the description it says it all).
I wanted to test Starcraft 2 also but i was dropped off the game, G. knows why.

Usually i play star2 in ultra settings n multiplayer and my fps get a steady 60-50
Diablo 3 runs maxed out for 120-90 fps.

P.S : if somebody can post a geforce GT650M benchmark on the windows 7 side that would be great.

I'm not judging how anybody spends their money but why would anyone who has a 2011 MBP buy a 2012 one? I guess I don't understand why this would even be a thought. Stick with your current computer for a few years then upgrade when prices fall/specs improve.

Well, the 640m is on par or faster than the 6750m according to many benchmarks. 650m is even 15-20% faster.

it is always interesting for 2 reasons :

first, you have the latest tech
second : the resale value

so each time a mac user really ''spend'' to get another macbook pro is about 400-500$

For a real life ex, my machine is ready to go on kijiji montreal for $1800. (yes i got at least 5 people begging me to sell it asap).
if i buy the new one it costs $2229 but i get the student discount price of $2029.
Make the calcul

Old tech depreciates rather quickly. A 3 year old macbook would have lost most of its resale value, compared to a 1 year old one.

Some people like the thread starter wants the best performance, and is willing to pay for it.

Title is a bit misleading, I was expecting to see a 650m benchmark as well.

The 6750m is quite impressive, I've got mine at 800/900@0.955V. Quite good that it can hit a 33% overclock while running at reduced voltage.

the 650M is a 28nm chip and significantly quicker than anything AMD has this year let alone last years chips.

the AMD one is also a hot chip where as the Nvidia will be cooler

I upgrade at every revision, usually only costs me a few hundred bucks. For my trouble I get a new, faster machine with a brand new warranty (saves me the $350 on AppleCare). It's less expensive and better to upgrade MORE often than hold onto a Mac for a few years and take a huge hit on resale price.

wth is the point of this thread, you make a title saying you have benchmark of both, then you just brag about your old radeon mobile card.

wow.
