    How good a FPS do you get on higher end games?
    Like Crysis etc?

    Do you boot camp and play in Windows 7 or mainly play in native OS X?

    Everyone says Crysis is the most demanding game... It's not ;)

    How does it handle minecraft with 100+ tnt going off? :D :p

    Just Cause 2; all settings at max and motion blur, I get a solid 30fps. Sometimes swoops to 25 when 'flying' through fog.

    Haven't installed Crysis yet, would you like me to get back to you?

    I don't have actual figures, but I have to admit that when the 6750 gets going, the computer gets HOT, and the fans spin like crazy.
    And it's a very unbearable hot, burns your knees!

    Yeah if you will. But it seems like its pretty beast. I can't wait to get mine, only problem is I'm playing in 1980x1200 =\\\\

    I prefer Windows because for a wider range of games, but OSX works just as well (I only use it for Half Life 2, Portal). Of course if you want to play CoD4, StarCraft2 and whatever else, OSX will work just as fine!

    To be honest, I've never ever been in such a situation!
    But I'm guessing it'd be fast..

    Don't forget Counter Strike: Source!
    But all those games above; with the Source engine, and Valve's perfect coding it runs very well!

    How well does it play SC2 in OSX? Any idea how much better it runs in W7?

    First of all, no its not "Fast". The computer starts to chug after the third TNT explosion. Not the macs fault though, its just knotch's sloppy coding.


    My question would be; How on earth do you competitively game on an Operating System that constantly changes your mouse acceleration sporadicly even with third party software?

    (I don't game too much on my mac because 1. its a laptop 2. it really isn't the best platform for gaming. However, I get really bored on plane flights and the mouse problem is the only thing that bothers me.)

    Does the computer get hot while playing MMO's like WoW?

    BioShock 2 at max 1680x1050 runs like a dream :)
    BulletStorm at max (no AA) 1680x1050 around 24fps+
    Metro 2033 same as BulletStorm
    Steam Source games (CS:S, Portal, etc...) lol, no sweat.
    Crysis 2 MP Demo at gamer 1680x1050 - smooth gameplay

    Also interested in this. Been obsessed with SC2 since release. :p

    I hate how hot the MBP's get. I am sad to hear they still are. Expected when running high resolution/performance games... I guess. Still doesn't seem like it should be like that for amount of $$$ spent.

    Have you tried to overclock the GPU?

    Can you try Crysis 2 wit gamer settings with resolution of 1280x900(or whatever the avaliable resolution) What is your avg FPS with these settings?

    Can you try black ops with low resolution as well like the above?

    Thanks a lot!

    That's because of a lot of poor thermal grease on your chips.
    Those who have replaced the TIM are getting much better results.
    The only problem is that you must be VERY CAREFUL when doing it or will receive a 2000$ brick.

    Other laptops on the market get just as hot if not hotter, but their plastic cases are poor heat conductors so you don't actually feel it.

    MBP's use their aluminum casing as a giant heat sink.

    Does it overclock on MSI's Afterburner in bootcamp? One of the best things about the GT330m in the 2010 MBP 15 was the ability to get 10-15% improvement in FPS by overclocking the GPU in Bootcamp.

    Nope. You can't OC with Afterburner. It shows 600 MHz as the highest. You can downclock, though.

    Idk how people get temp. readers on the GPU. Mine doesn't appear to have a sensor on it.
