I was wondering if anyone else has played counter strike on there new SR MBPs? I don't know if it's the handicap of the display or what, but even at it's lowest settings I can't get CS to show more than 60FPS even when max fps is set for 72+

So yea, if someone could please educate me why I can't pull more than 60fps from that game or any other game for that matter, please help.

If it isn't clear I'm using a midrange SR MBP.

Thanks.

The refresh rate of the monitor (laptop screen) is probably set to 60Hz. See if there is an option in the video driver or in CS:Source (or any game for that matter) to not sync to refresh rate which should solve it, but you may get tearing.

That setting is called vsync. Why would you need more than 60 FPS anyway? 35 and up is all indiscernible to the human eye.

CS and other games have a lil thing where when you have vsync on, it'll either play at 60 fps or 30 fps when the average frame rate drops. by disabling vsync it will only drop down to the 30 fps threshold when it really needs to instead gradually dropping depending on the environment.

granted that even on my 2.2ghz mbp cs and cs:source not to mention other hl2 engine based games runs flawlessly, there are times when the fps will lag down esp in smoke scenes and some hdr lighting situations.

That link would do a better job of explaining it that I could, well that's if you're up to the read.
