WoW low fps on Mac Pro
I have an 2008 Mac Pro 3,1 8 core with dual 2.8ghz Xeons. 6gb ram and I just installed a gtx 570 to replace my 2600xt.
I'm still getting poor performance. I know that the cpu has more to do then the video card but I am still only able to get good framerates at fair settings anything above that will drop the frame rates below 25 fps and ultra to below 20fps.
Is this what I should be expecting? I know my system is fairly old but I thought that the dual xeon would be able to give me good performance paired with the gtx 570.

As far as I know Wow is not utilizing all your CPUs.
Are you playing in Mac OS or win7?
You can try running in windowed mode and look in activity monitor to see how your CPUs are taxed.
I would expect decent FPS at ultra settings even in Mac os. Although Multisampling and ultra is not really working well in OSX.

Check if Multisampling is not set above 1x and try reducing the resolution until you reach desirable fps.
If nothing above helps, then I guess it's in your setup. What's your performance under Bootcamp?

I'm not sure exactly when the problem started, but I'm fairly certain it came with either the upgrade to Mountain Lion or the upgrade to Pandaria. IIRC, it still works fine under Windows, but I'll test that later....
At any rate, no, this is not what you should be expecting. That setup is easily enough to handle WoW at a good clip.
