    Just bought the new Retina Macbook Pro 13" i-7 256Gig (2015).

    UI lag is apparent, when opening Unity3d, there is extensive UI lag.
    UI lag is only visible for graphic extensive items, initial loads, and rendering. Anyone else having this issue?

    It can run Unity 3d. Rendering is fuzzy at first, until scroll over the text, then it is unfuzzy, a bit.

    It Can run Autodesk maya, rendering is fuzzy until scroll over, but happens each time.

    I flashed the ram and did a P, R, Option, command restart = no change, still fuzzy when opening those two applications. UI lag in launchpad not a issue.

    All other functionality is smooth minus UI lag and fuzzy graphic areas.

    So, all in all, this laptop is GREAT for programming/web development on - if that's what you are using it for, no issues from a working professional developer/artist/design perspective. For game programming, maybe the 15" with the dedicated graphics card maybe better until next graphics update.

    Everyone else: you're getting something too overpowered for day to day.

    Tell us something we don't know :roll eyes:

    What did you expect from something that doesn't have a dGPU?

    Nice comment, but I didn't know that before i bought it, I read alot of complaints in here, wish someone HAD posted about it before about the applications specifically regarding this model.

    Is there a fix for the UI lag or update announced?

    As a customer of one of the most expensive brands of electronic devices, you are not supposed to be a computer specialist. So expecting from customers, who just want their £1500 to work flawlessly, to be like 'Hey this doesn't have a dGPU, therefore it might be slow' is ridiculous.

    Regarding the question itself, yes this is a well known problem of Retina MacBooks, especially when combined with Yosemite. I would recommend you to turn turn Transparency off, and see if its any better.
