Really though, who's surprised. Mid-range GPU on a MASSIVE rez screen. its going to have issues.
everyone's eyes are different ( I wear glasses, but I have no idea what you're talking about), and adrenaline will help increase the "fps" we percieve when we are in danger... so yea... it's not really possible to attribute an "FPS" number to our perception.
We percieve massive resolutions too.
, if the iGPU be used by most of the time when off the plug.

with constant playable framerates, not to mention the native res of the retina MBP. So no, it wont be maxing those games.
I can't max out JC2 @ 1080p. Come close, but not all the way.

That would've been much better and then this would look more appealing because of the upgradability/repairs. It should also be a screen option for the normal.
I don't understand why it would to need to render twice to show the same aspect ration down-scaled.

I was told, though I'm not sure if it's accurate or not, that the RMBP has 900 core and 1275MHz on memory.
The dual-core MBP (which has HT) might be as fast as the base quad-core i5 iMac, but it won't touch the i7 models.
I just had to look up the aspect ratio (16:9?), render it once, downscale to 1080p absolutely needed. I'm tired and having problems thinking through this, but with so many pixels to use for the scaling it shouldn't have a problem .
I'd have always stuck to aspect rations of the screen and things have been clear all the way down to 720p. Granted, the only screen I've seen over 1080p is the ipad, and that didn't look any clearer than the previous version at a cursory glance IMHO (didn't get to use it for splashtop purposes
