Is the retina 15 Intel Iris Pro Graphics enough for CAD programs?

    I run autocad and a few other similar programs. I don't do much else that is graphic heavy, though some of my designs are rather large. Will the Iris Pro be powerful enough or should I consider the higher end MBP with the dedicated card?

    AutoCAD isn't too demanding until you get into rather large projects. If you are serious about CAD the GPU is worth it.
