    I have a base model with 8 gigs of ram and I only play Source based games like Counter-Strike Source.

    If I am on bootcamp I get 60fps, but if I am on OSX I get 25-30fps using the native port. If I run windows on parallels I get 35-40fps.

    My question is why the osx version get such low fps even the virtualized copy runs better!

    Is this true for other games?

    Becuase most games are poor ports on OS X. They utilize DirectX perfectly, but ignoring most OpenGL advantages.

    Better ports like Diablo 3 (after a patch) or Starcraft 2 get almost as many framerates in OS X as in Windows.
