    I recently decided to sell off my desktop since most games run great in boot camp windows 7 with my rMBP. The only game that seems to be giving me issues is Tribes: Ascend. Even on small resolutions (13xx by whatever) with all graphics set to minimal, I still get frame rates of about 10-15. I've updated all of the nvidia drivers, no help. I even tried the beta drivers. I tried borderless, windowed, and full screen. I tweaked every setting I could think of. The only thing i can think of is either the laptop simply cannot run it or there may be some kind of a conflict between the game and the hardware. My desktop was not much better than this laptop (~$700 home built) and it runs everything on highest settings no problemo.

    This is one of my favorite games, but being unable to play it is making me think twice about selling my desktop...
