    Please can someone with the 2012 Macbook Pro try to install it on their bootcamp partition and see if it works. I am close to upgrading from my early 2011 15" $2200 to the new loaded 15" non retina MBP. The only thing holding me back is driver support for the 650M.

    I'd try this out but I have the Windows 8 Consumer Preview installed, not Windows 7. Aren't Windows 7 drivers supposed to be compatible though?

    :(

    This is sad news. I am going out of the country in 5-6 days so if a driver is not released by Thursday morning I will be forced to stick with my current Macbook Pro for probably another 1-2 months. It runs fine so that's not a big deal but I know that the longer I wait, the value of my current Macbook Pro will continue to lower.

    I don't understand the problem. Apple updated the bootcamp drivers.

    The drivers that people are missing is only for Non osx correct? I don't understand why people don't just go to www.laptopvideo2go.com

    Ya I just heard about that a little while after that post.
    But I want to see how it is performing for some people. If it's a crappy driver then there is no need for me to upgrade. I am currently using 12.4 drivers for my 6750M and performance is pretty decent on high. But I want to just make one more purchase on a laptop that will last me a good 3-4 years. I know that Nvidia are great with their driver support (at least with their desktop GPUs) and with a 28nm GPU I feel that heat won't be as much as an issue as with the current 6750M. I already have a 512GB SSD so that won't be an issue. I'll just swap the storage on both laptops then sell the current one I am using for maybe $1400-1500.

    Because Apple did not update the graphics driver.

    Apple has released Nvidia drivers. If you go into the OSX Bootcamp assistant, click on download Windows support files and one of those will be Nvidia drivers. I did that last night, transferred over to my Windows partition through Parallels, booted up Windows and installed.
