Minecraft slow in Bootcamp.

Good day, everyone.

I've got Minecraft under OS X and Windows. When I play Minecraft under OS X, its very stable, getting 40-50 frames per second. But, under Windows, it drops to about 5-15 FPS. I usually play Minecraft under OS X, but I'm basically curious on why it runs horribly under Windows. All my specs are in my sig.

I'm not entirely sure, but I am just wondering whether you have up to date graphics card drivers installed under Windows?

Is Java updated to the latest version on windows? Is it running in 64 bit mode? (Im assuming you have a 64 bit CPU) Do you have the latest drivers installed?
Did you use the bootcamp installer CD after you installed windows?

How exactly does your quizzing the OP on their computing needs help solve their problem?
