    A couple of years ago ... full fledged gaming desktop computer couldn't max out GTA IV. These rMBP with the 2 GB 750m can max all settings and it runs smooth. (I don't know where I could see fps, but I don't feel like I have turn down some settings)

    Maxed out, the game taxes about 1.5 gb of VRAM according to the game. Thanks Apple for not being cheap and giving us the 2 gb VRAM instead of 1gb :D

    I do think there is an issue in bootcamp because the NVIDIA update installer doesn't recognise the 750m. This means Apple messed up something in the EFI? I'm currently using outdated drivers because of this.

    I only have a 2010 MBP but afaik Apple never allowed for Nvidia driver updates. Afaik you always had to mod the inf file to get them to install. Nvidia finds the card but doesn't like the notebook id and will not consider it supported by their driver update program.

    My 2010 15" MBP updates with the normal NVIDIA drivers all the time.

    when I hit check for updates in the nvidia control panel, it says I'm on the newest version. Are you talking about beta drivers?

    I'm talking about the latest official drivers from NVIDIA which are much newer than the ones installed. The driver installed is from bootcamp and when you use the NVIDIA control panel, it does say you're on the newest. But there are much newer drivers available which can't be installed.
