Check under System Preferences > Energy Saver is something like this and uncheck it.

Thanks for the quick reply but that was the first thing I tried as it definitely seems like the logical solution. Even with the nvidia 650m forced to run the drop occurs. Anything else?

Sorry no, other than some smart arse response about how terrible Mac's are for 3D gaming.

Hehe yah I get that a lot. I have come up with an alternative which may be nearly as good though.
I appreciate that disabling vsync will create tearing, Is this caused by excessive framerates? If so would it actually be beneficial to force high graphics in order to push the fps below 60, thereby making the tearing less noticeable?

I think that stable framerates of 30 are better than framerates that flip back and forth between 30 and 60, so yeah, I would push the framerates down. Interesting behavior you uncovered. For the record, I run my 15" rMBP on High settings in SC2 and it seems pretty solid, and the fans kick in quickly.
