    You will be able to play those games on high presets. Crysis will probably have to be played on medium presets. Its performance is around geforce 8800m and a little more powerful than the mobility 5730 that's in the middle line iMacs if you must know. You can possibly get benchmarks for the middleline iMacs with the "5670" chip and factor in a few more fps.

    Any idea how much better this card is compared to the previous 330m?

    Much better than 330M. I'm seriously considering selling my 2010 15" for a new 2011 model because of the GPU.

    6750 with 1 GB of VRAM? That's sick!

    I agree that the 6750 is a good choice, was hoping for the 6830 though.

    Dont know why people are so worked up about 1gb vram, as i dont really think the 6750 has enoguh stream processors to make use of that vram.


    What i think is the biggest letdown, is the huge leap in gpu peformance between the base 15" to the high end 15"

    I mean the 2010 modell, you went from gt 330m 256mb, to a gt 330m 512mb, two good cards.

    Now you get a underwhelming card in the base 15" and a good card in the high end, but the price goes way up

    That's because Apple knows you'll want to bite the bullet and get the more expensive one. A cheap way of upselling? Sure, but damn it does it work.

    Fallout NV: max settings native res bootcamp - steady FPS
    Starcraft: High settings OSX/Ultra Windows 7 native res - steady FPs with drops below 24 in high battles.
    GTA 4 is maxed on native res, good FPS
    Crysis 2: high res, very high settings, Good FPS.


    p.s - experience is final. look youtube if you don't believe XD

    i am doing starcraft 2 in ultra/extreme settings and it runs stellar. i dont get why so many ppl are saying it can only do medium/high. sometimesi have to reboot to clear my ram so it runs smoothly, but beyond that i dont slow down at all
