    What might these "system specific enhancements" be exactly?

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1712



    EDIT: To address all the speculation below: this link is the SAME update that Late-2013 MBPs get automatically in their update app. Apple posts the updates online also. Please stop with the confusion!

    The only point of posting the link was to reference the fact that the newest rMBPs got their OWN update, for the vague reason of "system specific enhancements."

    Did you see the link on the site you're referring to? And the other link on that page?

    That's as much as Apple is saying. Unfortunately I don't see anything about the 750m.

    In a very brief test I didn't see any improvement in 750M performance :(

    I downloaded the 10.9.1 from software updates. Do we need to install this update also?

    Apple should detect if we have a late rMBP and install the correct 10.9.1 but I think I will download and install it anyway.

    Installed it dont notice any thing different. Shame Apple released it this way. Most people will not know to download this special version if they have a late rMBP. It should be tied into the software update and select the correct version based on your model. Lame.

    Can this be installed on top of the 10.9.1 update that was pushed through the regular software update mechanism?

    So this is on top of the 10.9.1 in the App Store? I currently have 10.9.1 (13B3116).

    You can, but there's no point to do so. Software Update gives you only the correct version of 10.9.1 for the Late 2013 Retina MBP.

    Don't bother.

    I opening that file from a very fast Win7/64 desktop computer and my download connection speed is 28.5Mbps. The file download took something like 9 minutes to download from the source website. At 22.5 MB, it's a large file and the source website looks slow.

    It's totally unsurprising that a file that large with a slow source website would be choppy while downloading and smooth once downloaded. IMO, it has nothing to do with your MacBook.

    One would think but why did they include a link for this special version for the late rMBP? I figured it can't hurt so I did it anyway. Maybe it was released right after I updated the one from software updates.

    There's also a link for the regular version of the 10.9.1 update there too. Apple did the same with 10.8.x updates.

    13B3116 but I didn't check it after the original software update. Maybe it was the same.

    I updated via Software Update and my machine is reporting the same build. If one has already updated through the App Store, I don't think there is any real need to update again using another method.

    Good. Now the million dollar question is what did it really fix performance wise on the new rMBPs?

    Scrolling in Safari is marginally better.

    They did it for all the people who do not use SU but prefer a standalone installer instead.
