    Wonder if anybody thinks Apple might refresh the iMac within the next few months with the newly released Nvidia 700m series chips?

    Hopefully they offer 1GB on the low end instead of crappy 512 MB... :mad:

    Question is though how the 750m compares to 680MX. The 750m has higher GPU core speeds but the 680MX has larger bandwidth and higher memory speeds.

    I don't think the 750m will replace the 680MX but Apple might update the low-end from 660m to the 750m which will make the low-end 27" a lot more appealing.

    Although, knowing Apple, they probably won't do that anyway unless they can update the high-end as well since if they update the low-end, it will close the gap between the low-end and the high-end, making people feel less "need" to pick the high-end.

    The Geforce GT 750M is exactly the same as the Geforce GT 650M with 384 Cuda cores but clocked higher. It's still based on the GK107 or GK106 depending on the OEM.

    Low and mid end graphics will always be a rebrand. The real innovation lies up there on the highest tier.
    So I wouldn't hold my breath if 750m will be signficantly faster than 650m. The 7 prefix is a nice selling point for average Apple hippies though :p

    Well even if it provides a 5-10% boost, it's better than nothing.

    Nothing interesting indeed.
    Hoping 760m will be based on not-that-flawed gk106 with at least 768 cuda cores. Also hoping it could find its way to 21.5 iMac refresh.
