Running witcher 2 on bootcamp
I recently bought a 15" macbook pro with retina display. I mostly want to use it for school but i also want to play games on the side. I really want to play the witcher 2 but all i see online is ranting about horrible performance. I was wondering if i ran the game with windows 7 on bootcamp how well the game would run?
These are my specs
intel core i7 2.6 ghz
8gb of ram
nvidia gtx 650m graphics card (1gb)
i heard there was a driver issue for the 650m but is that only for running on mac?
Also i have an xbox 360 so is it possible that it will run better on that?

Your 650M and decent CPU / memory in the rMBP should allow you to run the game at decent settings at 1920-1080p at around 30fps.
Don't run in Native retina resolution ( it's too high )
Yes it will look better than the Xbox 360 version. (Which is equivalent to a Sub 1280x720 resolution, low-medium settings, 20-30fps gameplay)
Run at high settings, do not try running with Ubersampling - this is for massive GPU's in SLI style mode. It kills performance on nearly all but the most elite systems.

I'd suggest waiting a bit though because its frequently been going on sale for about 7 dollars recently and should again soon.
