    Anyone have passmark bootcamp score for the 780m?

    My old 680m scored 5500 on passmark overclocked, so the new one should be slightly faster.

    If you sold your iMac I'm not sure I understand why you would care? Am I missing something here?

    I want to buy the new one, but I want to know what to expect performance wise. I might also wait for the new Mac Pro, and depending on how they compare go with one or the other or both.

    If you look in the linked thread, you'll notice that there are 680MX (overclocked) vs. 780M (overclocked) figures in there.

    To make it easier: the 680MX, overclocked, is pretty much 1:1 with the 780MX, since the 780MX seems to be voltage constrained at higher clocks.

    If you have returned an iMac before and are open to getting a Mac Pro... get the Mac Pro. I have a feeling you would still be underwhelmed by iMac as great as it is.

    Yeah when Nvidia announced the 7XX lines everyone basically said "this is just a tweaked 6XX line sold at a better value". I was hoping we'd get a higher end card, oh well.

    The New Mac Pro will have two 7970 cards as it's best possible configuration (passmark 5200, each), but nobody can be 100% certain that crossfire will be enabled. So it will either be slightly slower than the iMac 780MX or nearly twice as fast (10400 passmark).

    And if you're talking about games, many games have issues with SLI/CrossFire (and don't support it well from day one).
