    Where can I get more information on this known issue? SMC resets and even a re-paste haven't allowed my rMBP's 650M to run 900MHZ without issues. It always drops back throttled clocks despite neither the GPU or CPU getting past 85C under any kind of load.

    :( sadface

    cats?

    I really don't know... theres been way too much info about clock speeds being wrong or underclocking for no reasons either part of the last EFI update or the 10.8.2 update. No idea whats going on. i don't run Windows on my machine... and I haven't had any issues with it in OS X.

    Mine was behaving this way before the either updates. I never noticed it in OSX either since I never had any games or benchmark tools to try out in OSX but in Windows, it was for sure always showing the exact symptoms being described by others on this thread.

    Basically, anytime the GPU goes over 65C its basically time to throttle. Lol yay. (and yes I cleared the dead bug from the chassis and re-pasted very carefully) . My rMBP runs cool as a can be yet its always afraid to try and work up any GPU related sweat.

    As far as Im concerned that was the most stupid thing that I could think of at the time (I know I should be more creative), didnt help though that my cat was trying to sit on my pc when I wrote the post

    hummmm.... there might be something wrong with your machine them...

    I'd like to believe its something wrong with my specific macbook, but alas it is my 2nd (the first one was with the crummy ghosting LG displays). They both acted this way, and the one I own now is just a bit worse after the recent updates.

    There are enough reports of this issue for me to be hopeful there will be a fix.
