    I'm curious if anyone has compared the Iris Pro GPU to the 750m with a thunderbolt display (or two). Does one work better then the other? I'm wondering if the 750m has smoother scrolling and animations when using the external 27" monitor?

    My current MacBook Pro uses the 650M processor when connected to my thunderbolt display, but I'd prefer to get the MacBook without the dGPU as long as scrolling and animations are just as smooth when connected to a Thunderbolt Display.

    the 4750HQ can support 3 displays of up to 4k, so it is able to push the pixels fine

    if it can scroll smoothly, i would say yes if the browser is properly using gpu rendering / compositing

    try use google chrome and enable some of the gpu accelerations in chrome://flags

    im sure anandtech will cover this in their article coming soon
