    I am trying to troubleshoot stuttery FPS with a game and have been told by support this:

    "I am sorry about the confusion in our last response. Bootcamp does emulate some process to be able to get Windows to work on Mac hardware. Are [our] games are not designed to be run on Windows that is using Bootcamp to run on Mac hardware."

    Is this true or are they talking rubbish?

    Rubbish - running bootcamp is running windows natively on your hardware.

    If it's stuttering, it could be a case of the graphics card not being powerful enough to play the game (You don't say what game or what hardware you have).

    It's World of Warcraft and I only have integrated graphics (Intel Graphics 4000). I still reckon it's a problem with their client as this stuttering doesn't happen when I am OS X. Also, I have no problem with stuttering when playing L4D2 or games like that.

    If its occurring in Windows and not OS X, then its not hardware.
    If its occurring in one game and not another, then its probably not a driver issue, or the other game is not pushing the iGPU harder.

    I'm not a game player but of WoW is stuttering, did you try lowering the graphic settings?

    I have the game settings on the lowest possible. The stuttering was a problem on OS X until they patched it recently but it's still occurring on my bootcamped Windows.

    They're now telling me to update sound card drivers for Windows and I have no idea where to find them.
