The quads would not only include the 5100, but allow an option for the Iris Pro 5200 with that eDRAM cache which makes the same GPU dramatically faster. There are quads in the right TDP, as I said. It is a possibility, I think it's just a matter of who would shoulder the costs. I'd like it there as a BTO option, at least, since Haswell won't have much better CPU performance than IVB core for core clock for clock, the only way to raise performance is adding more cores or...
    This is the same Apple we are talking about, right? Of COURSE they could get away with that. That's not to say that they will.  
Naturally. I'm just responding to the rumor as always. I'd be glad to be wrong. 
Hmm, so that's still dual core, and Iris not-pro 5100 with no eDRAM. Better than I feared, worse than I hoped. I wanted quads across the Pro line, there are quads in the right TDP for it. And the eDRAM only adds a few watts TDP. The CPU won't be much better than IVB, I expected that. I hoped they would either go with more cores for it, or go with GT3e for very decent graphics in the 13". Ah well, there's still battery life gains I guess.
Hmm, I don't think I did anything besides that, I may have removed all extensions, cleared out the cache and everything safari can clear, and then got my extensions back. As I said even the newest release isn't perfect though, just better. 
As I said the last update made it better, it's still not perfectly smooth but it's 70-80% there now. 
Does 10.9 increase IGP video memory for anyone here? This shot is from a forum where someone claimed it did.    http://forums.macrumors.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=416750&d=1370983618   With only 4GB, I would not want that, just for driving the built in display. If it used 1GB on a 16GB machine, sure, go for it. For a low performance GPU like the 4000 that seems wasteful. I wonder if it's dynamic? 
 And Core Duo macs and Core 2 Duo macs with graphics chips with only 32 bit drivers. 
I'm guessing no internal GPU expansion. Thunderbolt handicapped mid range GPU performance let alone high end ones, and Thunderbolt 2 actually has the same aggregate bandwidth, 2x10 and 2x10 up and down vs 1x20 up and down, 40Gb/s each, mind the little B. PCI-E is still way ahead.
