Thank you for sharing this.  I was thinking about returning my base i5 iMac Retina to upgrade at least the video to a m295X from the m290X.  My results weren't very far off surprisingly.  With the exact same test setup, I was able to generate, FPS=25.5, Score=643, minFPS=8.3, maxFPS=58.0.  I am thinking I am just going to hold on what I have.  I really thought the results would be far more pronounced when comparing to the i7 with the m295x.  In addition, my GPU temperature never exceeded 80 degrees no matter how many back to back tests I ran.
