    NVidia CUDA drivers are NOT installed in the Macbook Pro by default. And they are useful for many of the Adobe programs. New drivers were released last month and are available here http://www.nvidia.com/object/macosx-cuda-6.5.14-driver.html

    CUDA acceleration will then be available in certain applications and by many accounts, is better than OpenCL for those applications http://blogs.adobe.com/kevinmonahan...ry-playback-engine-in-the-macbook-pro-retina/

    These are only compatible with dedicated GPU Macbook Pros with the 650 or 750m

    yes, however lot of Adobe apps do not support 650 / 750 GPU anyway.

    Will installing these affect gaming performance?

    is there any apps which actually use cuda computing with GT750m? ..I know that on PC is few video transcoding apps, but apart from adobe aftereffects I don't know about any other app

    I installed Cuda drivers when I got my mbp in the spring. For my uses (3d renders), the laptop GPU doesn't seem powerful enough to make it worthwhile; CPU based rendering is still faster. Is there any reason to suspect these drivers will change that situation at all?

    After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Adobe Media Encoder.

    ----------

    In Adobe products, the CPU and the GPU work together for renders. If you don't have a dedicated GPU, only the CPU does the work.

    unlikely. Cuda is for compute, not 3d rendering in real time (opengl).
