Hi,

I've had my 13" rMBP for about 2 months now, and I'm very happy with it so far. However, I'm confused about the GPU. On some games (such as Dragon Age), it says that Intel GMA is not supported, does this apply for Iris aswell? Thanks in advance. :)

Nope, Intel Iris is a totally different card from the GMA. It will comfortably run any modern game, albeit at lower settings than a discrete GPU board.
