    i have the imac with 650M and in macOS it is a good card but under the windows with proper drivers this card is magnificent

    ----------

    and i am sure starting with 10.8.4 it will be equal in performance with windows because they work hard on graphic drivers for couple of months now.

    You don't have to do that. All you need is install a new driver that doesn't have the clock lock of Apple's from laptopvideo2go.com
    Then install nvidias performance tools and you can change the clock rates any which way you like. You can even create profiles that activate when you launch some applications like a game.

    It is obviously Windows only. The newest drivers there are not only good for over clocking but also in general for performance in games.
    On OSX over clocking is a wasted effort anyway. Even over clocked you won't get Windows performance and for non gaming apps it really doesn't make a difference.

    Fully aware of how to OC under bootcamp.. It's OSX and Zeus I was trying to get working :)

    Thanks for the info, I'm sure many others would find it useful.

    So at the end, does 2012 MBPc have the heat issue (after 20 minutes performance decreases) or is it just associated with old GPU in 2011 MBPc?

    Huh

    hi everybody!
    these are my frame rates!my tempreture during graphic intensive games is 65-78C
    i have 2QUESTIONS is your gpu temp as same as my mbpr ?
    second Question: my frame rates are good
    i can play games that use physx better than the others like Mass effect 3! and spec ops :the line setting: very high and 1366x768 resolution
    tomb raider 2013 about 30-45FPS
    MAX PAYNE 3 NO PROBLEM AND HIGH FRAMES PER SECOND ABOUT 45-56FPS
    RESOLUTION"1920x1200 very high setting

    Old thread I came across but a 650M in an Apple product would be hardpressed to beat this..


    My 14 inch Asus G46VW (burst is 1245mhz overclocked I set it back to stock for this test)

    Technically speaking the 650M and the 660M is the same card but the 660m is much higher clocked and does not throttle like in a Macbook so the performance gain is HUGE.

    here is my 2013 Retina... sad....

    anyways, old thread.. lol

    just ran this benchmark on my rMBP mid-2012 with some overclock, close results.
    I think I could keep pushing the memory clocks, but I think my point is done.

    anyway, no more throttling after installing the Yosemite GM3.0 and latest nvidia drivers (don't know which one fixed it, would bet on Yosemite).

    just ran on OS X, without any overclock (of course)
    bit unfair because it uses the intel HD Graphics as well, but there it is:

    And just to be objective you could use the same version of the benchmark instead of version 2.0 for Windows and 2.1 for OS X...

    Luxmark 2.0 for Windows and Luxmark 2.1 for Mac OSX are the same version.

    The .1 in the changelog is : (update oct 31th 2013: OSX 10.9 adaption)
