    Hi all,
    I tried to start a benchmark forum but everyone got the wrong message and Idea and then everyone started trolling and telling me to get a PC. Now, lemme state a clearer question: Are there any people out there on a mac with enough gaming experience to enlighten me as to the performance of the Macbook Pro 2011 w/ATI 6750M GPU, on the performance of the following titles:

    Dragon Age Origins (OSX)
    Dragon Age 2 (bootcamp vs OSX?)
    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (windows)
    Metro 2033 (Windows)
    Crysis 2 (Windows, only reason I'm asking is cause results vary...)
    Battlefield Bad Company 2 (Bootcamp)
    Starcraft 2 (Windows vs OSX?)

    If you could include your hardware, res, settings, and average FPS I would really appreciate it, I'm a die-hard Apple fan, mac-user and student, as well as an enthusiastic gamer, and so I'm hoping I can get results. :)

    E.

    Same resolution, 1440x900, set to DX11, 1xAA, 4xAF, Quality set to "Normal" or medium, I'm getting 25 fps. Bumping the Quality up to High drops fps down to 17.

    Hmm, any chance you can try it with the AA and AF off and with it set to DX10 and 9? It would be awesome if you could mate? :)

    i saw vids of the gtx260m playing metro 2033. that card is comparable in power to the 6750m, i think it actually bests it in some cases. anyways, someone on youtube was playing metro 2033 at full hd on dx9 all high w/ nice framerates. i think it's the dx11 that does it.

    Seetings wont allow me to turn off AF or go below 4xAF. I thought AAA was the same as AA off, but aparently a google search says I'm wrong. Anyways, I can't set it below AAA, quality wise, either. So for all of these fps examples and the ones listed above, I'm using 1440x900 native resolution, AAA, and 4xAF.

    With DX9 on Normal settings, the fps seems to be all over the place. From as low as 30 to as high as 65. I would say with little going on it's averaging close to 45-50 fps. With a lot going on it goes down to about 35-40.

    With DX9 on High settings, fps is in a tighter range. Averaging around 30-35, but also showed it dipping down to 25 at some points.

    DX10 on Normal settings actually seemed to improve fps over DX9. Again the fps range was all over the place from as low as 32 to as high as 65. With little going on it averaged around 50-55. With a lot going on, the average was 40-45.

    DX10 on High settings didn't show an improvement over DX9 on High settings. Same average between 30-35 and sometimes dipping down to 25.

    I'm glad you asked me to do this, I'll be sticking with DX10, instead of the DX11 I had been using.

    that sounds like a good idea, from my research, i saw that enabling dx11 only made visuals better in a subtle manner and that it prob looks better on dx10/9 because u can use more eye candy than perfect circles that dx11 provides for w/ tessellation.
