Couldn't you game at 1920x1080 and have it look exactly like a 15" screen running at 1920x1080. Yes it isn't native but since the pixels would be 4x smaller it should look exactly the same.


/edit

This is of course assuming that they double the resolution, and don't just go by what is accepted to be retina PPI based on viewing distance.
The base resolution can be anything, but it can only be doubled. (Plus, all the artwork Apple's done is for 2x size.)

And yes you could game at 1080p and it should look the same.

This is Apple we're talking about here. They'd move their entire Mac line to single-core ARM processors before they'd let anything touch the battery life.

In any case, the "thin, flash-memory, retina MBPs" story has been corroborated by several sources, including Bloomberg and The Verge, so I'm highly excited about this step forward.

Anyone think they can squeeze in powerful gpu's like 675M into the new Macs? GPU is the most important thing for me.

I think it's for certain that we'll see the 7000M series GPUs in the new MacBook Pro's as well as the new iMac's, I expect they'll use the 7750/70 and/or 7850/70 in the former, and the 7850/70 in all but the highest 27 inch iMac model which should use the 7970M 2GB.

Ugh, I just got my MBP Friday.

Intel's current IVB IGPU can easily run applications smooth at 1600p+ and play Skyrim at 1050p on medium settings at over 30fps or most games at high fidelity at a resolution of 720p. The only exception being Battlefield 3 & Metro 2033. Hardware acceleration hardly requires 3D clocks, so most of the GPU will likely sit idle anyway.

However, more is better and Haswell GT3 looks to deliver with 100% increase in gaming performance

How would those in the MBP's compare to current 675M's, nvidia's top mobile gpu at the moment? I know the 7970m is a beast.

Retina display is just a buzz word isn't it? From what I've been told its basically just increasing pixel density

GPUs in a MBP are almost always decent to good, but they rarely ever compare well against a dedicated gaming notebook.

Current rumors say it's the 650M, which is a faster clocked version of the 640M that's been reviewed here and there. The performance won't be mind-blowing, but the nice thing about a "retina" screen is that you can run it at half-resolution without any blurry LCD interpolation effects.

An interesting point from the 650M's specs page is its max resolution of 3840 x 2160. I don't see something that high on a 15 inch MBP but imagine a 4K 17 inch laptop. *drools*
