Macbook Pro 2014 vs 2015 - Graphics Cards in Premiere

Hi all,

I was going to get the new 15 inch Macbook Pro (2016) but was turned off by its lack of ports. So, it's got me looking at the 2014 and 2015 models with maxed out specs.
The 2015 has:
AMD Radeon R9 M370X
and the 2014 has:
GeForce GT 750M with 2GB of GDDR5

I noticed on Adobe's page only the 750 is supported. Considering the processors are fairly similar, would I be looking at better premiere pro performance in the 2014 model?

I'm upgrading from a 2013 13 inch macbook pro with integrated graphics. So, I understand I won't be looking at night and day performance changes, but I am looking for the ability to edit 4k, because the 13 inch has trouble with that. Thanks!

How do you propose to play back multiple streams of 4K video in real time?

You can't rely on a laptop alone for that.

yea dave's right. do you mean with proxies? because you'd need a SSD m.2, x4 pci lanes 950/960 pro to playback multiple 4k online streams.
or a single stream with 850 pro or external T1/T3 via usb 3.1.
