Is it likely the 13" will come with better graphics?

    Really wanted to get a MBP 13" but having the standard integrated graphics has put me off. Then I find this place talking about Haswell aswell, well now I think I should wait for an upgrade.

    My main worry is the 13" will continue to ship with the standard integrated Intel HD Graphics 5000 or something similar, rather than NVIDIA chip.

    Is this likely to be the case?

    there will not be a dGPU in the next 13" and maybe never. It not even sure that the 15" will get dGPU this time.

    However for the 13" rMBP the graphics will se a nice upgrade compared to the current rMBP. So if you whant the 13" rMBP wait for Haswell.

    Okay thanks, I will do. I was just dissapointed with the current graphics in the exising 13". Is it possible the new chips can run games as a decent rate or will they be poor?

    Have a look at this iGPU performance comparison between the upcoming HD5000 vs previous versions [HD4000, HD4400]:

    Well whatever you want to call it then. It's just easier to refer to it as that.

    Yes there is.

    HD Graphics 5100
    HD 5100
    Iris Graphics 5100
    Iris 5100.

    It's all the same. And it's highly likely it's in the 13".

    Yes. My comment was in half jest. Somewhere along the way, Intel started applying different naming conventions to differentiate - most notably, Iris.
