    I was wondering what GPU do you think the next top spec retina MBP will get? Is it likely to see something like the GTX780M?

    No. That GPU's TDP is more than the the rMBP's all together (I believe).I am expecting no more than the750/60M with 1 GB GDDR5.

    780m is 100-122w tdp, its the same gpu on the imac 27, the 680mx a full gk104 core.

    though I just saw acer putting it in a v3 17'' notebook that is quite thin.

    basically do you see the 85w psu that apple uses? check all the other laptops out there that have something similar and what gpu they pack

    Don't expect any big jump in rMBP GPU performance until there's a new process node for Nvidia which won't be until 2014. As an above poster posted, 750M is most likely chip which is basically a higher clocked 650M that's found in the current rMBP.

    rMBP 15" might have something like the 765M which is found in the new Razer Blades. The 14" version of that has a similar overall size to a 15" rMBP so might be.

    The rMBP does have the retina screen though, so depending how much power that draws (vs the 1600x900 Razer (I think)) it may have one of the lower cards.

    I disagree on processor nodes, maxwell is a new arch and where we are predicting big jump in performance, off course since they have started this 2 year schedule, a node bump doesnt kill anyone does it?
    which in turn needs a 150w psu to provide power, there is magic and there is unicorn power, and in other news there is a 85w adapter that apple still uses
