    Hello
    I recently installed windows 8 on my MacBook Pro retina display 2.4ghz model and I started to play games. First it was running smoothly and every was fine. And then my FPS went on crazy from about 30 to 5-10 without changing any settings any ideas?

    Every game? Have you updated to 10.8.3 yet? Have you tried gfxCardStatus to set the GPU to the dedicated one?

    Then gfxCardStatus won't work since that's an OSX utility

    Sorry, totally overlooked the Windows 8 part, thus updating OS X and using gfxCardStatus will not help, as Windows uses the dedicated GPU solely.

    Are you sure?????
