    I don't understand what you are saying. Besides, I didn't know that the export ban to Iran had been lifted. Are you even supposed to have a Mac?

    It's not. He's probably an immigrant or simply has Persian origins. If you immigrated from Iran to USA you're allowed to buy computers as long as you don't ship them to Iran.

    Yeah, but he's saying that he is in Iran (as if his command of the English language didn't already confirm that)! Hence why he has heavily restricted access to the internet and can't download the drivers from just anywhere, as he wrote it (if I understood him correctly).

    Yeah, my bad, I had not seen his previous post, I thought you only assumed that because of his username.

    It's core is clocked 40 MHz higher (775 MHz) than Nvidia stock specifications of (735 MHz). Retina MBP is clocked (125 MHz) higher than classic MBP.

    I currently have a 2012 MBP 650m/1gb and can easily overclock (1 GHz)+ on the core.

    Yeah I've been playing Sleeping Dogs on my 2.6Ghz/16GB RAM rMBP and I'm amazed at how well it runs. Also, Driver: San Francisco plays great as does Darksiders II.

    nope!

    ----------

    the gt650m and gtx660m are actualy the same card only one has SLI enbled and one dosent. the diffrence between the gt650m and gtx660m is the gtx660m has SLI. so the Rmbp actualy has a gtx 660m.

    There is a notebook with gt 650m sli, lenovo y500.
    http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/...5B0116E237099FA0FCA012D9B20ED2FB#.UL6SRYNQVN0

    I think most gtx 660m run at 825/2000 but have a boost function (assuming thermals permit) to run at 950/2500, or slightly better than the retina mbp.

    I just switched over to my first PC from being a Mac user all my life and I actually have the gtx 660m in my new computer (lenovo y580 with 16 gb ram and 256gb sataIII SSD). Without being overclocked it actually runs at 950 MHz, with MSI Afterburner I can get it up to 1085/2800 and it doesn't get above 75 degrees while playing Far Cry 3 on highest settings in 1920x1080, but I'm not really sure if that is a demanding game.

    Macs will always have a place in my heart, but I love this computer. Just came across this forum and thought I'd throw in my two cents as a 660m owner.

    ----------


    Actually the 650m is the one that can use SLI, as in the Lenovo y500. They are definitely not the same card, but if you can get the 650m in SLI it performs over the 670m.

    Yes it should fix the throttling issues. But in all honesty take it in for repair. There might be something more wrong with your system.

    How is everyone getting such good temps. I was able to oc to 1k core stable but too hot for my taste. Max temp after 20 min was 91C for the gpu. Probably could go higher if I can get better temps. I'm to scared to go any higher.
