    I ordered the higher spec MacBook Pro with the Radeon Pro 455 but am wondering if I should consider exchanging and upgrading to the 460. Are there any benchmarks out there yet comparing the three GPU options?

    Assuming nothing is out there. Amazes me that none of the major outlets have covered this.

    The 460 is the better choice, hands down.

    However, I have already seen quite a few posts by people who are having issues with the 460 being faulty on arrival. Not sure if that's just normal production failure rates or not.

    We have the specs, per AMD. The 460 should outperform the 455 by about ~40%. I've done benchmarking with the 460, and performs about 10% slower than GTX 960m in DX11, for reference.

    From what I've been gathering, the 460 problems are caused by enabling FileVault. Disabling FileVault seems to fix the issue.

    Sounds like a driver bug then and not hardware. Will get my 460 macbook tomorrow and hope i dont get glitches, never use filevault anyways

    For what it's worth, I've got a 15inch/2.9ghz/16GB/2TB/460 and haven't noticed any issues with the GFX card.

    I own the same configuration and it works like a charm maybe updated Mac OS fixed the issue?
