    I've seen videos of BF3 and Diablo, but I have never seen one done of Wow and starcraft. I am curious about these because they are some of the only games that run native in osx.

    Installed GTA IV last night via bootcamp was running at 2560x1440 (Thunderbolt) at around 50fps on very high settings, this is without any updates or patches to fix previous game problems. ;)

    Wow! That's amazing! That's the only game I play so, you've put my worries to rest. Now can't wait for my RMBP to arrive ..probably around 18th July.

    Enjoy your RMBP:)

    BF3 is probably one of the most demanding games currently...

    Flight simulator X with all the addons and payware. Let see that sucker run. The most taxing game ever made

    Would be cool but this game isn't that demanding.
    Do you have Assassin's Creed 2/Revelations/Brotherhood? I would really appreciate it if you would review those games.

    Diablo3 looks f`ing phenomenal at native 2880x1800 res. However, it seems to be taxing the system quite a bit, as the fan goes up to 11 and won't stop.
