    While not having specific numbers to back it up you should be seeing better performance in BootCamp as you are actually playing in a Windows environment as opposed to emulating it.

    Googling found this on another forum:

    Maybe this is incorrect, but I guess that the actual Windows APIs will serve better than Codeweaver's backwards engineering :)

    MacBook Pro = gaming faster in windows

    MacBook = gaming faster in CrossOver for many supported games

    No, not many games..very few actually. If it supported more games I might actually think of using it instead of bootcamp, but since it only supports 19 games, its not worth it. And alot of the games are old.
