Does the late 2013 15 inch retina Macbook Pro support 3 external displays?

The original 15 inch retina Macbook Pro was capable of driving three external displays simultaneously:

Can the new, Haswell-based Macbook Pro do the same? Or did that capably go with the discrete graphics card?

Thanks!

The top of the line (most expensive) 15" MacBook Pro retina should still support 3 external displays since it sports both an integrated GPU (Intel Iris Pro) and a discrete nVidia GPU.

Yeah, I would have guess that the top-of-the-line 15 inch macbook could still drive three external displays. I'm curious about the one with Iris Pro though. Has anyone tried plugging in three screens?
