Hello,

I'm not a specialist in this topic, but trying to choose between my current iMac 27 (2012), i7, 750SSD, GForce GTX 680MX 2GB and new retina MacBook Pro 15 (2013), i7, 1TB SSD, GeForce GT 750M (planning to buy).
My question is related to performance between GTX 680MX 2GB vs GeForce GT 750M
I found some tests but to be honest I need clear answer. Which one will be better for games (Diablo 3 and Starcraft). Of course there are another aspects like portability, CPU performance, RAM capacity and so on but for mentioned questions I've got my own answer based on my needs and expirence. Only question I have is video card :)

The GT750M GDDR5 performs better than the GTX660M, and only performs insignificantly worse compared to the GT755M GDDR5.

At this stage, you could go to NotebookCheck and compare the GT755M GDDR5 and GTX680MX for a comparison.

The 680m is a much better card, so your iMac is better for gaming.
