Maxwell 850m and 860m are already in laptops and WWDC is in June. Sounds good :)

    Maxwell 850m and 860m GPUs are already in laptops they are already being reviewed and benchmarked.

    Here is a guy sitting next to a Maxwell equipped laptop reviewing it back at the end of April:

    I can't see why Apple wouldn't put one in for a WWDC refresh. They love a slow walk while saying increased battery life, increased performance at the keynote ;)

    I would not get my hopes up. The odds of Apple moving to Maxwell in a MBPr refresh at WWDC are incredibly slim. A minor CPU bump is what I would expect to see. We will likely get Maxwell in the fall with the new Broadwell CPU based MBPrs.

    Look at it like this, time moves pretty quick and it will be autumn before you know it. It gives you something to look forward too!
