With 2 thunderbolt ports I assume 1 for high speed raid array and the other or a bmd hdsi box. Could get interesting.
Thoughts?

Yes, I'm curious how this 650M would do compared to a GTX285, which is the fastest I'm used to at this point?

I looked at the specs on the Nvidia site, and the 650M seems to have a higher clock and more cores, but bandwidth is less than a 285.

Possibly for 1080p video only (+GUI, of course), the bandwidth is enough?

The 650M should perform significantly faster than the 285. In theory. I would guess comparable to a gtx470.

Though if this is being used to work the display could this then not be used for cuda?

There is an integrated gpu which can run GUI, freeing 650m for CUDA.

I think that is auto switching like all of the Macbook-Pro's and that you can use either the Intel 4000 GPU or the 650m but not both at the same time.

To display. This is the same as before with the last nvidia gpu on 17". GUI on integrated. Processing on discreet.

Not many companies allows for connecting to the internal network through WiFi (and with good reason).

yes but we can not say it is not possible in tech sense. have usb lan then.

different question is if osx supports it.

mostly you would see laptop as on the go machine

Thunderbolt allows for loop through and two devices operating at full speed. So two ports = up to 4 devices at full speed.

Juan Salvo:
"Thunderbolt allows for loop through..."

Now if only more vendors would add a second Thunderbolt port for pass through. Way too many vendors' TB implementations seem to assume their device will be at the end of the chain. That thinking certainly could constrain the purchase of TB-based devices.

Christopher, since the next generation MacBook ProbRetuna is available, I suspect Barefeats will have some benchmark results within the month. Not sure if they would specifically address Resolve performance.

Looking forward to the results some of the creatives will be posting here about their hands-on tests since I'm sure some will be buying the new laptop.

Is it really possible to use both graphics cards in a MacBook Pro in this way (1 for GUI and one for Cuda processing) ??! Has anyone actually made this work?

This is how it worked with resolve in the previous gen 17" MacBook pro.

On older MacBook 17" i have used it like so.

1 one was for guy and second for gpu.

Different question is how media speed will be etc.

it should be rally possible but actual field testing is needed.

What about Resolve on the Retina display and how it will pixel double any application that does not have built in support for Retina Resolution? Will this degrade the resolve interface? And keeping at the optimum resolution of the computer still has the real estate of a 1440x900 screen. How would you expect this will effect Resolve on the screen?
