Some people in that other place are ridiculous. They are crying foul because these machines are not beating out the latest dedicated GPUs from Nvidia or AMD. That’s like responding to a new line of Volkswagens by complaining they aren’t as fast as Porsche. It has become such a cesspool of over-opinionated morons over there. And everyone of them is an expert, of course.
Yeah, no matter how fancy or awesome it is, there's no way a laptop can compare with a top end discrete GPU in a desktop with a dedicated thousand watt power supply, and an active cooling system that weighs as much as both your ass cheeks combined. You can do all kinds of crazy things when battery life and heat aren't really much of a concern.
That the new Macbooks have an integrated GPU that can roughly match a Geforce 1050 while sipping power is impressive in and of itself.
