Seems these developers are pretty excited. If other developers are as well, we may see some cool things ahead.

I don't think it is going to mean that the games perform comparably on Macintel and Windows. Windows still has DirectX and the Mac doesn't. That is the main difference in gaming between the two platforms.

Microsoft controls DirectX and the OS, so they are totally optimized. Apple on the otherhand controls thge integration of OpenGL, but it is not is own and has had problems optimizing the implementation.
