If you had to compared the what high end card would be equivalent to the GT650m found in the Retina Macbook pro from a few years ago what would it be? Nvidia 7800GT ?

Far in front of a 7800gt. (Even the integrated 4000hd is getting close to 7800gt performance! )

Its more like a dual 8800gtx desktop

I have an ancient desktop computer with these 2x8800gtx in sli and it is very comparable in framerate when playing games to this laptop.

Technology has certainly come a long way since I was building my own rigs!

I guess one could say the 650M comes close to the 280 GTX Desktop chips.
The 7800 series is just way way older and slower. A 650M should beat any single chip older than the 200 series.
