i want to get a laptop(macbook pro) and was wondering the difference between the performance of the 2 graphics cards and if i could run like ac black flag at the lowest settings on the 650m with at least 30 fps.

Are you running it through bootcamp? AC BF isn't available for Macs.

Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 108

is it possible to run the game on the lowest settings but still at the laptops native resolution of 2880x1800 and still have a decent fps on either the 650m or 750m
also if it matters the 650m laptop has 1 gb gddr5 while the 750m has 2gb gddr5
and yes i will be using bootcamp

Physically the 650m and 750m are the same part. The only difference between the 650m and the 660m was that the 650m had DDR3 and the 660m had GDDR5, but the 660m (and 650/750m by extension) wasn't really powerful enough to utilize that extra bandwidth, it was only about a 3% boost over the 650m. I wasn't aware they made a 650m with GDDR5 so that might be a typo/mistake on the manufacturers part, but some 750m's do have GDDR5, I'm assuming they're rebranded 660m's vs most of the first run of 750m's being rebranded 650m's.

Nah.
Just run the games at 1440x900, it'll still look nice and it'll be very smooth.

For mobile gpu's like these which aren't all that powerful anyway. The DDR3 memory is enough as long as you're playing at 720p and don't try to max out the games you're running. I just see GDDR5 memory as a waste of resources on GPU's like the 650m, 750m or any of the amd HD8000m chipsets.
