    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.

    Nope. I have an 5770, it's still faster and apparently also a BEAST untl today. :D
