[OS X] Retina MBP jerky Safari scroll

I have a fully loaded Macbook Pro:

MacBook Pro
Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013
Processor 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7
Memory 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 512 MB
Software OS X 10.8.2 (12C3103)
APPLE SSD SM768E:
Capacity: 751.28 GB (751,277,983,744 bytes)

In Safari, when I do the 2-finger scroll, there is a noticeable delay between the time I scroll my fingers on the trackpad and when the screen actually moves. It's quite annoying.

This machine is sitting on a 50mb cable connection with gigabit ethernet cabling through Apple's Thunderbolt to ethernet adapter, and scrolling should be instantaneous.

I have only observed this with Safari, my current version is 6.0.2 (8536.26.17). I have only Adblock extension installed.

There is no lag in scrolling in any other application.

Anyone notice this?

Something HAS to be wrong, just checked, my 2.4Ghz Macbook Pro, with only 2GB RAM, running OSX10.8.3 and Safari 6.03 is buttery smooth, when scrolling with 2 fingers........and I've got 4 other Applications running!!

Yeah must be. I just installed Chrome and Firefox, and neither of them ave the delay problem. It's either Safari, or the one extension I have, which I will now delete.

Your system should be quicker than the eye can see!!!!!!!
I thought (I read somewhere) the Intel HD4000 could go as high as 768MB RAM, when having 16GB?????

Scrolling has nothing to do with the speed of your network connection.

Post a screen shot of your activity monitor.

I know, but shouldn't the extra MB of Intel GPU count???

Yup, just checked, with 'only' 10GB RAM, my Intel 4000 has ramped up from 512MB to 768MB Graphics RAM..........

The lag is really noticeable, and annoying. Don't think this will reveal anything useful.

Yup! This is exactly what I am seeing with Safari. The longer the page the worse the lag. It renders HD video without a hitch though, and Final Cut Pro works flawlessly like on my iMac. The screen resolution is lovely though, I can see the difference in Aperture.

Looks like this has to be fixed in a Safari update if I read that article correctly.
