    Hey everybody.

    Just wondering whether there had been any speculations about the upper tier graphics card coming in the new June MBP 15". I hear the new integrated graphics are close to the GT650M. What are thoughts about dedicated graphics? Could it be a GT750M possibly 2gb, or 1gb?

    Any thoughts?

    Everyone's hoping for 700m series, personally I'm hoping for 750/760M, 2GB would be nice but won't probably happen.
    There are already laptops with 750M so yea...

    That would probably be good for fall release, which would suck.
    Need laptop soon. Hoping for June refresh, and 700m series January (long enough where I won't be disapointed with lower specs.)

    Of course 700m series now would be welcomed.

    or the chance of Apple removing the GPU and going with GT3.

    It would have lower performance than 650m but it would benefit the system in terms of cost, battery, noise, heat and energy usage.

    It would not be very fun for gamers and video editors through. But if you could slice of several hundreds dollars of this premium product, and if a lot of people wouldn't notice.. then it becomes hard to argue against it.

    I love games, but i acknowledge that Apple never cared about gamers or great GPU performance.

    I don't think they'll do away with a dGPU altogether. I think they may bump up the GPU just like they'll bump up the Tunderbolt, wifi, SSDs, and processor. We may see less of a glitchy switch between iGPU and dGPU or at least less caring about a glitchy switch since Haswell should be able to handle most-all daily activities. I don't think anything in the 700M series is outlandish at all but I am hoping for something at or above the 750M.

    No, it won't.
    Intel's i7-4xxxHQ (GT3e Iris Pro) SKUs have ridiculous price tag, making non-Iris SKU+750m combinations less expensive.

    The 4850HQ has a base price of $468, while the 4800MQ is $380. Yes, it's clocked slightly slower, but the L4 cache should make up for most of the difference, and I would assume a 750M is well over $88.

    I expect the 750m with 1gb VRAM.

    I want (and know it is possible) to get the 760m with 2gb VRAM.

    They did this before with the 2008 to 2009 models. Unluckily, I got the 2009 models which have the "upgraded" crappy integrated graphics card compared to the 2008. The CPU was much better though

    Out of interest is the dGPU a actually card that can be changed if it fails or is it soldered to the logic board like the ram

    As with 99.x% of all notebooks it is soldered to the main board.
