Has Intel ever done something like this before? I'm familiar with the 3630-39XX and the 4700-4900 i7's, as well as there lower clocked battery saving counterparts but the new macbook retina XX50 i7's are different, more like an APU, lower clocks and better graphics?

How does the 4600 graphics compare to the 5200? (this also seems to be deviating from the 2k-3k-4k graphics naming)

How does the 4700 compare to the 4750 and the 4800 etc.? Did intel make these special for Apple?

Is the lower clock necessary for the better graphics or is it more of a battery life move and the graphics just come with?
